Still thinking about this lift but what bothers me is the lack of a front trackbar but for the price, its a deal. My OCD kicking in on keeping everything to the same brand

I absolutely love the AEV on mine! Couldn’t be happier! I tried a rough country spacer lift first and switched to the AEV. Quality is definitely there with AEV! I’m running 37’s.

Had my dealer (AEV Authorized) install the lift. Could not be happier! With the 37's it certainly rides smoother, turns better. I've got a Fox stabilizer and ARB stubby to throw on, waiting on a new parts bag from ARB (shipping box was damaged and lost a large number of parts for the installation).

another satisfied AEV dual sport customer.
That looks awesome. I have a sport as well and thinking about getting this lift. Are you able to fit in a garage? I have a standard size garage 7 feet and I was wondering if my jeep will fit. I'm assuming this lift kit gives us sport owners around a 4 inch lift since Rubicon owners are claiming more of a 3 inch lift.

You should fit just fine. The Sport sits a bit lower than the Rubicon in factory trim (1-1.5" i believe), which winds up still being about 1" shorter in height than a Rubicon with the same lift kit.

I agree, that silver looks amazing with the black Pintlers!

My Jeep is actually Granite Crystal but i guess the sun is making it look silver during the pic.

I would argue this this is more of a 3 inch lift rather than 4 - maybe 3.5 at the most. I do have Rock Hard 4x4 sliders which weigh maybe 40lbs on each side but not enough to squat the Jeep at all? I have plastic bumpers and it doesnt look too jacked up to me. My garage is 8ft opening with a 9 foot ceiling inside...just the way my townhouse is designed. I didnt have any issues fitting inside, a 7ft opening would be really close though. I am probably pushing 7ft with the lift and the 35's but I havent measured exactly.

Had the same opinion regarding the trackbar.....I went with the SteerSmarts Yeti XD front track bar with standard bushings. Works like a champ.

I just measured the height, it sits at 77 inches.

Wonder if they’re ever going to do a 3.5 and/or bilstein 7100’s?

Why is this lift kit not more popular? I'm looking into getting a 2-2.5" lift and am trying to compare this to the Dynatrac EnduroSport 2". Everyone raves about the Dynatrac, but not so much for this AEV lift. It's similar in price.

Any body have any comments on the two?
