I'm finally getting around to a build thread about a year into my wife's ownership of her first Jeep. She chose to name her Jeep "Warthog" after the vehicle in "Red vs Blue" or RVB. If you are not familiar with the show, here is an exerpt from the episode with the "Warthog". https://rvb.fandom.com/wiki/Red_Gets_a_Delivery

She purchased her Jeep from Ourisman in MD for 8% under invoice in March of 2019. Sting Gray JLUR with 3.6, 850RE, Packages 24R, ERC, DFT. Factory options were keyless entry, steel bumper group, safety group, LED, 8.4 radio, trailer tow, cold weather, body color flares and hard top. This was her first Jeep and her only requirement was she wanted AEV Savegre wheels with 35" tires.

we wanted a little more than the 2” lift that the AEV provided and came across a great deal on the lift.

So, no complaints about the AEV, correct? I am planning going that route and am looking for feedback on it. Only running 315's on a rubicon.

AEV was great with the longer Mopar control arms!

Great build. I just ordered my first jeep so I'm going to steal all your trail locations you posted about since we're practically neighbors. I'm in Riva.

The Jeep has been working great for what we do so there haven’t been any updates. We are headed out tomorrow to run some blue trails at Rausch Creek in the snow so we decided to install the Rockhard 4x4 LCA skid plates that we have had sitting on the shelf for 2 years as a precaution.
