Last weekend I made the jeep look like it should from the factory. AEV/Nth Degree 3.5" full suspension lift including progressive tuned coils, Bilstien shocks all around, full geometry correction via bracketry and new trackbars and a high steer draglink flip. I finished it off with the new 35" Goodyear MT/Rs with Kevlar.

I'm glad I paid a little extra and went with the good stuff. The difference in ride quality is apparent.

Man, maybe the Tahoe side, but not sure about the side you and I hiked. Yikes! Not sure I'd wanna drive 3300 miles round trip for that though! That'd be some serious highway time. :lol:

How is the ride and handle with the aev lift? And those are the first Goodyear mt's I'd consider buying! Are they quiet on the road?

ummm.... please go out to your driveway and take a look at your Jeep......Puhleeze....No problem getting THAT through the Con. Heck, they drive stock TJ Rubi's through there all the time.

Just think of the fun on a couple day trip on the Con.....youv'e been there, just imagine camping at Buck Island lake, taking a dip in there to cool off, watching the sunset while sipping a cold one...... Oh and then there is the Springs.... some memories there for sure..... Moab be damned, I wanna go to the Con!

The ride with this lift kit is unmatched. I feel like I have a whole new ownership of the road. It's really stable.

As for the tires, I agree. I was not a fan of the old style of MT/R. I had em on my KJ and was not that pleased. I've only had these on since Saturday and so far they are darn quiet.

Ya, ya, ya. It would just somehow have to be figured into a trip that included more days elsewhere out west. I can't drive that distance and just 'wheel the Con. That'd be a might expensive trip for 2 days 'wheelin.

Looks great , looks just right, good stance, have heard a lot of great things about the AEV lift as far as ride and handeling go.
