If you check out my build thread there is a lot of information, the coil overs are King 14" reservoirs in the rear. In the front there are 12" Fox Resy's for now with 4" Currie coils.

Sounds about right except I heard they only made 5 total.

I'm not sure on the exact numbers, but he is right that AEV made quite a few and had an influence on the production of the LJ. You don't see any for the same reason you don't see many of the 4 door TJ conversions: most people that bought them weren't offroaders. Plus they arent easily recognizable (unlike a 4 door TJ).

Since my buddy bought his less than 6 months ago, he has been trying to find out everything he can. He has been talking to Mr. AEV multiple times on the phone and by email. The white one I posted above is one of the first ones converted and yes it has seen some very light wheeling in the past but my buddy is changing that. His came with a mutt lift with about 3 different types of control arms and 2 different springs iirc. These were done back when AEV was a 2-4 person shop before they were big or had a suspension department. There are a few of these on the AEV forums but rarely are seen for sale. This one was at a rare car showroom sitting beside lambos and the like.

My friend wanted to buy this one a few weeks ago for 23K. It was immaculate and only had 25K miles or so on it. The guy sold it before he could get financing to a dealer for 22.5K. A few weeks later, we were calling around, trying to find my friend a rubi and went to look at one. The guy told us it had just sold but that he had another one in the back that he would bring out. It was the same one (AEV 112)! I said, what's the price? He replied $38K LOL!!! We showed him a pic of my buddy looking at it a few weeks before and told him he was crazy. The guy that owned it before said that it was #5 out of only 5. Not sure if he was just making that up... It was a beautiful Jeep up close. If anyone wants to buy it or negotiate, it is for sale at a Cadallac dealership in north Phoenix.

He was making it up. There is over 10 of the 112 owners on the aev forum. When we set up the thread over there asking about his 112 when he forst got it, 10 or so guys posted pictures of theirs..... unless it was just the other 3 112s that multiple guys were just trading to paint and post pictures of it.
