Because You Demand the Best Components on Your New Jeep Wrangler JK
When Jeep first released the 2007 Wrangler JK, there were many suspension companies trying to build lift kits for it. Unfortunately, most of these attempts were disastrous. With the complicated on-board active suspension, it was no longer as simple as changing springs and shocks to lift a new Wrangler. Lifted Wrangler handled poorly both on and off road. While other companies were scratching their heads, AEV developed the ProCal. This "tuner" allowed the on-board computer systems to be dialed in to the new geometry of the lifted vehicle. Even today, many suspension lift companies recommend or even sell AEV's ProCal for use with their lift kits
The same meticulous, scientific approach AEV took with the ProCal goes into every lift kit they produce. After lifting a new Wrangler with a DualSport SC, we often hear from the customer that it rides BETTER than it did stock. We tend to agree. The precise geometry combined with higher quality springs and shocks create a ride the rivals high end luxury SUV's. If you are in the area, come by our shop and drive one for yourself. You'll instantly see why we EXCLUSIVELY use AEV lift kits on our new Wrangler builds!
The AEV DualSport SC Suspension System improves upon the DualSport ST Kit with the addition of some added components. The AEV DualSport SC Lift Kit now includes our High Steering Kit, ProCal Module and Jack Base. Our High Steering Kit, by correcting the roll center height of the front suspension, improves steering response. The ProCal Module gives you the ability to correct the speedometer and gear ratio when larger tires are installed in addition to many other features. Of course, the DualSport SC includes our AEV-tuned Bilstein 5160 Remote Reservoir Shocks and frequency-tuned Coil Springs, With the ability to handle up to 35" Tires with the 3.5" Lift, or 37" Tires with the 4.5" Lift, the AEV DualSport SC Suspension gives you the driving experience Wrangler JK owners have come to expect.
IMPORTANT NOTE: For 4.5" Lift on 2012+ JK Unlimited
The new 3.6L Pentastar power plant on the 2012-2013 JKs changed the positioning of the stock Y-Pipe. When a lift kit is installed the clearance between the exhaust and the driveshaft is dramatically reduced and the risk of contact damage is greatly increased, especially when traveling in rough off-road terrain.
The aFe Mach Force XP Y-Pipe re-routes the exhaust to provide the necessary clearance to clear the drive shaft. It is recommended for 2012 and newer Jeep Wrangler JKs with 3.5" lift or higher, especially those used in extreme off-road conditions. It is required for installation of 4" or higher aftermarket lift kits on 2012 and newer Jeep Wrangler JK and JK Unlimiteds. The aFe Y-Pipe maintains the factory "Loop" to keep engine back-pressure equal.
ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE: For 3.5"+ Lift on 2012+ JK UnlimitedIf you have a 3.5" lift or taller, we highly recommend upgrading your rear swaybar as well. This sway bar by Hellwig Products is a shop favorite. It makes you more confident and more in control when taking turns or in the event that you have to make an emergency brake and swerve. It also removes all of the body sway you might experience when passing or getting passed by semi trucks/tractor trailers on the highway in your Jeep. It improves your ride in town, on the highway, and doesn't limit your Jeeps off-road capability when combined with sway bar disconnects.
