Anyone know how much "actual lift" a Rubicon will get from this one?

If you have a loaded rubicon with all the options and steel bumper the lift is actually close to 2.5. I had plastic bumpers and my lift was close to 3 inch but honestly it effected nothing as far as ride quality. Once I get steel bumpers and more armor on the Jeep I’m sure it’ll even out

I dont think the factory steel bumpers weigh that much and my winch is on the lighter side also. I just looking for about 2.75 of lift right now with the RC 2.5 and 37's its almost perfect just want that last tad.:LOL:

Just installed the AEV lift with Poison Spyder Bumpers and ended up with 3.80" of lift.

So how was your first week with the lift? Any feedback? How’s it handle the weight of the bumpers? Sorr6 for all the questions; just curious as I’m considering AEV for my ‘19 JLUR. I have front and rear steel RH4x4 bumpers and LOD Destroyer slides/steps and am looking for lift to handle the weight.

Have done several trips now with the new setup, everything is working fine. I ran the AEV on my JK and liked it well too. The weight is fine, my jeep weighs in at 5,440 lb as you see it in the pics with full fuel tank. No weight issues out wheeling.

Ive had it on my two door for a few months, wheeled it a few times. No real complaints at all. Drives well, hoping to get some steering components to tighten that up soon.

It is meant for extra weight. My rear bumper is 30lb and 35” tire on the back. I throw sand bags in the back to tame down the ride when im unloaded.
