    Default AEV Highline Fender Kit vs. Lift

    Looking into one more option. The title says it all what does everyone think?

    If I could do everything over.... I would have kept the stock suspension, run the aev hi line fender/grill, hi lined the rear. Run up to 35s with no issues.

    I am running 3 in springs, with 1" BL. When I get home, I plan on dropping it about 2 inches (getting some used rubicon springs), and then doing a high line setup, with a belly up style skid. Lowering the CoG is a good thing.

    That kit is awesome, and their attention to detail is great. I saw one in person back up i michigan, beautiful. Plus, a low center of gravity and great ground clearance? can't beat it. If I was doing another TJ/LJ, thats exactly what I would do. And then later on if you want to work the suspension, you can do it in pieces, like flexy control arms to get more flex, sway bar QD's, etc.

    Also look into MetalCloak's fenders. They will also allow for 35" tires with no lift and also provide protection. There are two styles, the arch and the overline, no cutting, no new hood, just buy and bolt them in place of your current fenders.... There are a bunch of threads on them in jeepforum (I also think Matson posted a couple pic in here as well), and you can also check out their site....

    Here is one of the threads on here, the Overline thread

    I was going to go with AEV for my big jeep project, but I think MetalCloak has me with the overline kit and 6" removable flares. Just tossing it out there as another option. I haven't heard anything bad about AEV, in fact I keep hearing they are so good, most people don't even realize they aren't looking at a stock jeep!

    x2 on the Metal Cloak. Besides being a h#ll of a lot cheaper than the AEV kit, they are stronger, the fenders are removable for thos close in situations and you can do front and rear for the price of the AEV front end. And the arched fenders just look badass!

    My tube fenders up front gave me some clearance over stock fenders and a sawzall took care of the rear. I used a lift but stayed sua(yj). I like the idea of the high line but think they work well together. My current issue is not enough droop so adding f250 shock towers for longer drop to let them droop
