Thanks man, im installed the AEV 2.5 dualsport w/ bilsteins. Very very pleased with the lift quality, was pretty easy to put in too. I started at 430 yesterday and got done at around midnight with my brothers help at around 8am.

Heres some ok pictures, ill get some better ones later.





I feel I got a bit more than 2.5", which is great

My bad, totally my fault

Better pictures of the AEV 2.5 Dual Sport kit, comes with pretty much everything you need. I ordered a front track bar thats coming in the mail, but it really does drive like it doesnt need it. Overall, the quality of the lift is amazing and for the price at this height, I dont see why you would look past this lift. Rides better than stock, going over bumps you can hardly tell. Going to go flex it here to check the bumpstops with my flares so hopefully I dont rub with the sway bar off. Heres some better pictures for you guys

It actually is perfect. My rear tire has less than a fingers width before it hits the flares. Have yet to test the front but im sure it would be ok. I need to disco the front sway bar before i go wheeling this sunday!

Looking at the synergy front bumper with the KOH race hoop. I havent seen anyone run one, and the only pictures I find is the 2 pictures they have with their own rig. I think the hoop looks super badass

both of those look sick, but not as sick as this, too bad the shop takes forever to make them!
