    Hey all!

    I have a 2 door 2015 Wrangler Sahara that I am wanting to get lifted and put mud tires on. Just looking for suggestions. So far I've heard good things about AEV for the lift...I was thinking just the 3.5" lift. I've also heard good things about fuel wheels. This is also my everyday vehicle so I'd like something functional on and off the road. Any advice appreciated.

    Welcome! Ive looked at a few lifts, and went with the OME set up, with adjustable front/rear trac bars. 2" lift, so you might look into the 4" OME.

    Its the closest to an original ride out. I like everything about it, and no cons. With different bump stops, it clears 35" tires. Right now, I'm running 33" tires, and "might" go to 34".

    2.5" AEV Dual Sport lift, 35" Treadwright Guard Dogs, Black Rock Wheels, AEV Front & Rear Bumpers with Tire Carrier, Fuel Caddy 10 gal. Aux. fuel tank, Warn 9.5ti, 125' synthetic winch line, front axle skid, 20" LED light bar , Bilstein Shocks, steel steering skidplate,
    I am a fan of the AEV and I run one. Being designed by a bunch of former Jeep engineers shows in how AEV lifts perform. they are designed for those who, like yourself, are going to be using them both on and off road....hence the Dual Sport name. Truly a superior ride.

    What height lift do you have? What size/brand of tires?

    Stay away from odd size tires. Harder to find, and God forbid you blow 2 tires if you are running a generic size someone in the group might have a spare that fits.
