Default AEV/MOPAR LJ Options

I wanted to post this up here and see if anybody has insight. I purchased the LJ at the beginning of this year (2016) after a couple of Jeepless years. The Jeep is 100% stock other than the top and atrocious exhaust tip that is waiting to be chopped off. I have plans for it but they aren't on the horizon just yet. Curious if anybody from AEV has any insight on the options this Jeep was built with. I've been told these are AEV-designed products but would like confirmation. Before I bought the LJ I had never seen these corner guards w/ rub rail, sliders, or rear bumper before. Naturally, I've seen the front bumper on Brutes and what not.





Any information is appreciated!

Nick

What youve got is the mopar offroad package, which is the bumpers, rockers and corners. Im also thinking you have the mopar exhaust system too, the tip should say Jeep on it if it is. I guess someone took the winch or never got that far since they were equipped with Warn 8k on the lot. Great looking Jeep and yes those parts were designed by AEV. Do youself a favor and buy one of those ENO hammocks. Hook one end to a tree or whatnot and the other to the rail on those corners -works great!

I assume these packages were often dealer-installed upgrades?

Cheers

I know that several dealerships out here on the east coast Mopar'd the Jeeps up with the Off-Road Package -but it was stupid expensive. It was somewhere close to $5k for the upgrade. The rockers were around $600, the bumpers were around $600 each, the corners were $400 and the winch was almost $2k. Couple that to a Rubicon at youre knocking on the door of $40K

Even though most of these items are now discontinued you can still find them on ebay from time to time. You can not utilize the rockers with a highline kit though.

Will the LJ corners work with the Highline kit without notching the flares or altering the corners?

You will have to trim the corners -youll still be able to retain the side tube
