I been looking at aev 3.5 rs or the metal cloak which is basically going to cost me the same. What lift do you have

It sucks because dealers give false information hoping to sell ridiculous up-priced products. A few years ago MOPAR kits were relabeled teraflex, not sure if that's the case anymore. The Magnusson Moss act covers your consumer warranty protections in depth if you want to read it.
I ran the AEV 2.5 for 3 years and 80k miles with no issues. I stayed away from the 3.5 because I knew I'd be putting a ton of miles on it and I didn't want to do drive shafts, though a lot of people get away without doing drive shafts on 3.5. The reservoir shocks add a good bit of cost and really only shine if you're going to be doing long trips on washboard fire roads - they're meant to keep the shocks cool over long periods to high intensity work. If you get past needing reservoirs I'd look into the Fox shocks that are comparable to the bilstein 5100s. I can't think of their name, but they are supposed to ride quite a bit softer than the billsteins. I used my jeep a good bit, and never really experience the off road limitations that many say come with AEV, but I was just out to have fun, not totally push the limits.
