The SL works with '05-'10.
They have done the work already, they had an XK running 35's i think it was for the iceland challenge. The WK and XK are identical mechanically just a different body
The WK/XK Pintlers were kind of pointless because the JK pintlers work perfectly fine, hell alot of us are running JK moabs anyways

So what products are you needing for the WK? Aev specifically?

obviously we would like more then a 4" lift, Ive heard rumors they are working on a pro cal to adjust for the new 4.10 gears, bumpers, fender flairs, anything they are willing to build.

Id also really like to know if the 3.8L supercharger kit works on the 3.7L, I know there are alot of similarities in the top end.

AEV has already said many years ago that they couldn't make much business sense on this model, so while I agree it would be cool to see AEV support this vehicle, I can already tell you that you aren't going to see anything.

AEV has already discontinued the TJ/LJ products because they no longer are able to sell the quantities needed to make business sense, and this is a much larger crowd than the WK/XK crowd.

So why not just look into doing a SAS? It has been done and mastered by people in their own back yard. Literally. It would be nice to get a major supplier to get it mastered and have it out in the market.

And once again, what about the rumors of the IFS Wrangler in 2015? If it happens, we all know AEV will make lifts for the IFS and I Guarentee there will be a SAS for it.

Regardless if its been pushed back or not, its going to hhappen. The new wrangler is going to have the same setup as the WK. So if AEV is (and they will) going to make specialized lifts, and even a SAS, then why not do ot for the WK/XK?

I'm not sure why they wouldn't, and I think it would be cool if they would.

But I'm not sure that logic will guarantee results. Don't the TJ/JK Wranglers use "the same setup" (i.e. solid axles) as the WJ? Even with "the same setup", AEV hasn't moved on the WJs.

My guess is that there are a lot of other dynamics required to get a lift that handles well. IMO, that seems to be AEV's niche. Anyone can lift a vehicle. Very few can lift a vehicle and still have it retain stock-like handling.

But yeah, it would be cool.

Just because some of the rumor mills and blog sites say something is going to happen I wouldn't take it for a fact. One of the companies I work for has a lot of rumors and speculation around future products and features that may or may not be coming out, and I would say maybe 5% of the rumors are true.

Unless you hear it directly from Jeep I would take anything worth a grain of salt.
