AEV tummy tuck question

I am trying to plan my build ideas for the next couple of months so, so far parts I have sitting in the garage to install are metalcloak overline front and rear fenders, 1 ton steering, and a vanco pbs is about to be ordered,

coming up I plan on a 2 inch OME lift with steering stabilizer
Currie AntiRock
SYE and CV driveshaft
35's and new rims

then an AEV tummy tuck
my question is with the AEV tummy tuck am I required to have a 1 inch body lift installed, I have herd a lot of talk about body lifts being installed to allow tummy tucks so I was just curious

i had an aev tt on my ribicon with no body lift , i dont think is necesary, you have to dimple the tub to allow some room for the TC to tuck in , but most of the room comes from the low profile mount, and that thing is almost flat , to me the best TT out there!

well who doesn`t like a jeep

With the aev it's not required, but it can't hurt either.

yeah take a sledge hamer and make a dimple above the TC in the tub to make room , the tub is double lined in this spot so it does not show inside the jeep just a dent underneath, mine is a rubicon with a 241 transfer I dont know if you have to dimple the tub with a 231 transfer since is a bit smaller, and if you have a body lift i`m sure you dont have too, the installation is easy as long as the nutserts on your frame dont spin when you are removing the stock skid then it could get ugly , but even then is not terrible .

I prefer a broad faced plastic dead blow mallet for moving the sheet metal. It keeps it a bit more uniform VS a bunch of dents in the floor.

The AEV doesn't require a body lift for the 231 or 241 in the TJ applications.

However if you swap to an Atlas 2 speed, it will require the body lift OR the tub to be cut & welded up for clearance.
