    I wanted to find a set of 5 x 4.5 AEV wheels... and still am in the market if a set comes up. Spacers will indeed be needed to run these ones.

    Thinking 33's... and from what I have read, this size doesn't necessitate regearing?
    why would you need wheel spacers with AEV wheels, they are already backspaced properly

        Even with 35s and tj wheels they rub on mine so I added spacers

                Looks great! Would be great to come up with a matching rear bumper. Either way...looks great! The Mopar bumper is well built. I'd venture to say stronger than most.

                I was disappointed with front ARB bumper in comparison. All though the ARB bumper is really nice. Just not as heavy duty as the Mopar TJ bumper.

                  Thank you I appreciate that. I have been searching for a rear, but have been unsuccessful. Found this one new in box on eBay. The PO had a tj years ago and sold it without ever mounting this bumper. Was in the box for prolly 5 yrs. Mopar rears rock crawler bumpers are unicorns I'm afraid...just like the tj bridger wheels.

                    You just have to search craigs list all the time. I have 2 fronts and a rear and will continue to purchase as I find them. I just picked up a AEV built LJ Rubicon with 20k miles on craigs list

                      Can't hurt to ask...how much for the rear lol?? I'll continue to look, but it gets very tiresome.

                          What does your AEV LJ look like? Any pics? After I get the rear bumper I want to do carbeau seats front and back.

                              Nice. I feel like I have seen somebody take the AEV tire carrier and constructed that to fit with the mopar rock crawler rear. It looked very clean like it was made for it.
