For the price, there isn't a better lift on the market for overall use. I don't think it's that expensive considering what it offers. Yes, it uses brackets, etc., but at the end of the day it gets the job done better than 95% of what's on the market.
I am actually taking it off of my jeep -- but only because I'm going to a 5.5" rock krawler long arm stretch with coilovers/bypasses in each corner (diff. rear axle to fit the coil overs in the rear). It wont handle as well on the highway once I do this. For people that use their Jeep day to day and want the best possible off road performance at the same time without sacrificing highway driving -- you can't, won't, beat AEV. The progressive rate springs are awesome
The only thing I recommend is if you're going at a decent speed over rougher terrain -- air bumps might not be a bad addition. EVO sells some good 2.0" ones. Otherwise Poly sells King air bumps for a good price too. Seeing as you're in Georgia though I don't think you'll need them.
