For The AEV lift, the geometry correction brackets fixes any drive shaft concern.

The last time I installed an AEV lift with Geometry brackets, they moved the Lower Control Arms at the frame mount, but did nothing to address driveshaft issues. Seems they were more of an attempt to save on longer LCA's while reducing your ground clearance a few inches.

AEV's drop brackets change four distinct parameters:[LIST=1][*]- Lowers arm angle for ride quality.[*]- Lowers the instant center for better braking (antidive).[*]- Decreases operating angle of the driveshaft by reducing the range of travel.[*]- Corrects caster angles.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

A question for Pat@FieldsAuto...

I understand that Mopar has a prototype Jeep Performance Parts 4-inch suspension lift kit for possibly the late model JK's (MY2013-2015). I read this was installed on their Wrangler Maximum Performance JK concept vehicle (the blue one). Do you have any more information about this lift or its availability?

Generally means Yes. Odd they did that.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Just wondering if there is any update on Plum Crazy Purple? Is it still going to be a late model year special edition? I just don't want to order one in a different color then find out a month later the purple will be available.
