    AEV JL Discussion

    Welcome to the new forum sub-thread on the 2018+ JL Wrangler. Our team has been working non-stop to design and engineer parts for the JL platform, but we would also like to hear from our customers and fans!

    What parts would you like to see AEV produce for the new JL Wrangler?

    Per the AEV Facebook page, AEV plans to debut their JL at SEMA this fall.

    We will never be first to market. We take our time designing, engineering, prototyping, testing, etc to create the best products out there and at the quality we are known for.
    Just purchased a JLUR and I'll wait for AEV products to become available...wheels will be my one of my first purchases.

    It would be cool to see some concepts of the products that AEV will make for the JL.

    Yeah. So I think he can run 285/75/17s without a lift on the JL.
    A small 35 such as the KO2 will also work in most situations without rubbing on the JL Rubicon. Looks like most owners are choosing to run 37s with only 2 inches of lift.

    I am original owner of an AEV '99 Jeep TJ short wheel base. I can hardly wait for AEV to make another fantastic turn-key upgrade to the 2018 wrangler.

    One thing I would absolutely love for AEV to do if Jeep won't do it (and it doesn't look like they will) is to mate a manual transmission to the diesel and turbo 4 option for the new wrangler. Jeeps are one of the few vehicles left to offer a manual and in my opinion there is no better connection between driver and vehicle whether on-road or off-road.
    This. My tow rig/family hauler is a ‘14 WK2 with the VM 3.0L. Awesome motor but its the first automatic I have ever owned and I miss having that third pedal.

    I would also add that it would be nice if you would delete the need for AdBlue/urea without breaking Federal emmissions regulations that would be great!

    After a thousand miles on my JL Rubicon I have to say wow... It is an amazingly well put together package from the factory, and an accessories line in tune with my needs. I also have a 2016 AEV JKU nearing 10K miles of hard abuse.

    So things I would upgrade or change?
    Front and rear bumpers (AEV style influenced)
    Rock rails
    Lift / Tires options at 37" and 40" (heavier rate than mopar, overlanding)
    Hood (Fake extraction on Rubi hood is lame)
    Wheels (Love your wheels!)

    Also, the gauges and plaque are nice touches. Basically one up FCA.

    For the most part, I would like to see the same amount of options for the JL as we had for the JK.

    - On another note, I always thought it would be neat for AEV to get into the pop-up tent market, and by that, I mean a pop-up tent specifically made for a jeep.

    I would love to see a manual transmission for the 3.0 ecoDiesel, though I have to wonder what transmission exists that can handle the torque..?
