    You can (and probably shouldn't) fit 35s on a JK with no lift if you cut up the flares and have the correct offset and backspacing.

    We already have a high capacity spring in final testing now and we showed them at SEMA. That will likely end up being a product that is carried over onto the JL platform as well.

      It sounds like a lot of JK aftermarket parts will work with the JL. The main one I'm curious out, and will stop me from ordering one, is if the AEV geo correction brackets and lifts will work. I'd be suprised if they do considering the new axles. But it'd be great be able to have AEV parts at launch.

        Looks like the JL will be offered with many formerly-aftermarket-offered-parts installed directly at the Toledo factory, with FCA financing (snorkel, lifts, winch, lights, beadlocks), so AEV's offering will have to be even better to win the customer's business _ I may be wrong about that and probably mis heard the pundits on youtube from LA Show. The competition will be good for us : ) !

          I think you are totally correct. Will obviously be included in warranty as well then. I have faith in AEV that they will be able to come up with something we haven't even thought of. Dave has a way of pushing the envelope and making the far reaching become mainstream and I am sure they will do it again. For example, if the new JL truck comes out as a double cab only, AEV will convert them to single cabs and make that what you need to have.

              Those sound like some awesome builds! We have only built 1 regular cab truck on 40s that I know of, tray bed trucks aside.

                  FCA owns Jeep so really her Jeep IS a ferrari in a way : )

                    My experience is that dealerships will charge a premium for the Jeep branded parts along with the install. For example many dealerships will install the 2" JK lift with 33" tires on the JK for a $6,000. Might be a Jeep part and included in the financing, but all of the parts are under the Mopar Performance Parts warranty, which is that there is no warranty.

                      the video i saw suggested the mopar parts would be installed on the assembly line - who knows, not sure what any of it means. Watch the launch video and tell me what you hear.

                        I too have FULL faith in AEV ! With the release of the JL and many upgrades already being stock (Vented Hood on the Rubi), etc....I can only imagine that AEV will knock it out of the park with their JL Package !! The ONLY thing I have my fingers crossed for is that they continue to offer the Savegre Wheels in Black. Not sure why the discontinued the Argent and Silver.......My build won't come for a few years, So I'm not in as much of a hurry as many people are....Hence the reason for the Begging and Pleading to the AEV people like Chris...

                        PLEASE Continue to carry and offer the Savegre Wheel in Black ! Best Wheel I've seen......

                          It does seem that Mopar is taking notes and decided they could get the profits the aftermarket companies have been getting from Jeep Owners. I am anxiously awaiting what innovations AEV can come up with for the Jeep. I think suspension is one of the areas that offer opportunity. When you look at things like Raptor and ZR2 offering expensive shock packages, many customers would like to upgrade the Wrangler to something similar
