      Personally I hope that AEV doesn't change much, just adapts to the new JL platform......I've always loved what AEV has done. I do not own an AEV Jeep.....I was waiting for the new JL, but knew that I wanted one from the first time I saw one....I'm all for improving things, such as making things stronger and/or easier. Adding components that may have been overlooked or not thought of originally are also great ideas (as many have posted), but just don't stray too far off from what we ALL clearly love !

        .

        Now that the JLs are starting to hit the streets, how long until we start seeing the AEV JL products?

        Any concerns on the competition from the Mopar JL performance parts?

          Parts will start to trickle out throughout the year, with the easier parts coming first, like wheels most likely.

          We are focused on what we have done for over 20 years. We are confident in our abilities as a company to come out with products that our customer will love.

              Just thinking with a keyboard in front me: The JK had a wheelbase of 116" and the BDC conversion extended that 23" so 139" wheelbase. The JL current wheelbase is 118.4 -perhaps the JT wheelbase will be somewhere between the current BDC wheelbase of 139" to 141.4"?

                  When do you think AEV will have a JL lift kit available?

                    I was told by someone who claims he has inside information that the bumpers would be released in 8 months.

                      When will the Roof Rack roll bar brackets be ready for the JLU Rubicon? I am assuming that the stantions and Pioneer Platform will not have to be redesigned.

                        A lot of JL questions were discussed in our January Live Stream on Facebook and Instagram. There is no definite timeline. Our bumpers are definitely on the complex side of the aftermarket where it takes a lot more time to design, engineer, tool. prototype and produce the parts to make them mesh with the JL like it came from the factory.

                          There will definitely be a redesign. The sport bar (roll cage) on the interior of the JL is more narrow than that of the JK so that is definitely something that will need to be addressed.

                            How about using the longer wheelbase of the JT for an Outpost III. A cab closeout to make a single cab with a walk through like the Outpost II. Little to no overhang behind the rear wheels. HD spring kit. You could leave the entry door where it is on the Outpost II and the added length could be on the front of the camper portion. Sorry, sitting in a Dunkin Donuts on the road while my wife shops so I had some free time to dream LOL. Keeping the Outpost as a unit with no tent portion like the original Earthroamer Jeeps means it would be much easier to heat and be much more useable for things like backcoutry skiing or towing a sled to the hills.

                              Heck, I would like to see this for both the JL and the Ram 2500/3500. I think it would sell like hotcakes personally.

                                Not sure if this has been discussed yet, but I would really like to see a big brake upgrade, at least on the 5.7 and 6.4 conversions. I loved my 6.4 and just adore my new 5.7 that I picked up a couple of days ago. Both are JK350s and have everything on them that I could ask for, but with that extra power and torque, I think these big rigs definitely need some beefed up stopping power particularly for on-road use (Brembo perhaps, borrowed from the SRT/Trackhawk Cherokees?). Would love to see a brake package offered alongside the full packages you put out. Thanks!
