Looks good. So those are 35s with NO lift? How tight is the clearance in the back? I assume it's pretty tight with the stock suspension.

Are you pleased with the construction/quality of the AEV Highline kit?

Also what tires are you running? Are those stock wheels? Is yours a Rubicon, or a standard Unlimited?

Not that you'd take my word but the construction is top notch. I was hearing that the hood would be cheap and flimsy but in my own opinion it is the exact opposite of cheap and flimsy. Very nice product.

Thanks Drew. You have the same exact kit?

Thanks for the info, timmymac. Mine's a standard Unlimited, so I'm trying to get a feel for any differences between ours.

Are you keeping the stock springs? I may be interested in them. One last question, has your LJ always sat a little lower in the front than the back? Mine has, but I didn't know if it was just the difference in std. vs. Rubicon springs.

The front fenders are high-line replacements from AEV. The kit includes the hood, fenders, and front/rear fender flares (bigger than stock).

Yup, same kit. I plan on lowering my jeep when it's installed. Right now I have 4.5" with 1.25" spacers. I think I'm going to ditch the spacers.
