AEV's Highline kit will allow you to run 33" tires with stock TJ suspension. This is a high quality kit that replaces both front fenders, the hood, and all four flares with new factory like sheet metal and flares. All factory and most aftermarket accessories fit without modification, and the Heat Reduction Hood is a sharp look for your Jeep.

Pros: More tire clearance with no suspension changes Excellent Fit and finish. Slightly thicker sheet metal
Cons: Expensive. But really well worth the quality. Painting expense required.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I love this product. Like the others have mentioned, if you weren't looking for it, you would not notice the subtle difference. The fit and finish make it look like OEM. I did not have to do very much shimming, all the bolt holes just seemed to line up with little "persuasion". The sheet metal on these things are considerably thicker (14 gauge) than the factory sheet metal.

If you do not have your own painting tools, expect to drop another $500 to $800 to have it professionally painted.

If you are clever enough, you could alter your stock fenders and cut the hood to achieve the same result for next to nothing, but you are going to have to be pretty talented if it is going to look clean and not cobbled together. Also, all of the under the hood components will readily fit like stock without any shifting around on the AEV highline.

I can guarantee, that if you are willing to drop the coin, you will get a quality looking highline with an equivalent 2.5" of additional tire clearance with no lift.

Check out my highline installation build to give you an idea of what is involved:

Pros: Rides like stock
Cons: Price

Comments: The AEV lift is very well engineered and easy to install. The instructions are spot on (leave no room for head scratching question marks). A few minor modifications and you get a stock like ride.

Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got an awsome deal from the big Q at their tent sale and it took awhile to save up to have it installed and painted, but it just looks so effin sweet.

Pros: 33's on factory wheels with only slight rub. Looks freakin' awesome. Almost no one notices you did it.
Cons: Almost no one notices you did it.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great product! Some would say a little pricey but it doesn't cost any more the factory sheet metal. The first install was after a deer committed suicide by jumping in front of me on a Christmas Eve. I did remove the hood spring that pops the hood up when you unlatch it, it was twisting the hood when closed. Everything fits under the hood just as it did before.

Comments: Excellent product. Most people don't even realize the high fenders are there. They do notice the great looking hood. The fenders are heavy gauge steel and fit exactly the same as OEM. The only thing I wasn't crazy about is the opening for the hood vent. It would be better if the grill bolts where on a reenforcing ring. Otherwise I'm very pleased.
