Everything You Need to Know About The World of AEV Jeeps


When it comes to the rugged, off-road world of Jeep vehicles, there are only two names you need to remember – American Expedition Vehicles, or AEV, and Keene CDJR. AEV is the most trusted manufacturer of after-market Jeep Wrangler accessories in the world. Their products are second to none, and Jeep Wranglers, outfitted with AEV lift kits are the envy of every person who has the pleasure of encountering one. It is true that AEV Jeep vehicles are the off-road authority figure in the 4WD world, and the other name we asked you to remember – Keene CDJR? Well, they are the number one trusted dealership to outfit your Jeep with AEV parts for the most heart-pounding, adrenaline-rushing, off-road excursion you can fathom.

What it Means to Lift Your Jeep Wrangler

If you live out here on the East Coast, or have spent any significant time in a region that has a mountainous landscape, then you have likely seen a Jeep Wrangler on the road that looked different than the others. These Jeep vehicles have been equipped with a lift kit that allows them to more efficiently navigate mountainous terrain and off-road trails. These Jeeps are taller than any other vehicle you have likely seen, and are more capable of off-road adventure.

There are different AEV lift kit options, and picking the right one for your vehicle makes all the difference. If you are more interested in driving a Wrangler that is better at handling a few minor off-road excursions, then a full suspension lift is likely not your first choice. The more affordable and more beginner-friendly JK200 is a great place to start.

Whether you fall into the beginner category, define yourself as an off-road expert, or fall somewhere in the middle – there are AEV packages that are suited to all levels and abilities.

Mistakes to Avoid When Lifting Your Jeep

If you have made the decision to lift your current Wrangler, or purchase one that has already been lifted, it is important to take the proper measures to ensure that your vehicle’s lift kit is properly installed. If the vehicle you are considering has already been modded, be sure to ask questions prior to signing on the dotted line. Check out a few important questions to ask if you find yourself in this situation:

Who Installed it? All too often, drivers attempt to install lift kits on their vehicles without proper training or knowledge regarding this complex process. A Jeep that has been lifted by an amateur will likely give you problems down the road, and you will be stuck with a vehicle that doesn’t perform in the way you need it to.

What Brand of Lift Kit Was Used? AEV is the authority when it comes to quality lift kits, but other companies that manufacture lift kits do exist. Ask the seller of the vehicle you are interested in about which brand they used for their lift kit. If it is a brand other than AEV, be sure to do extensive research to see if it is a quality lift kit.

What Are the Specs of the Lift Kit? If the vehicle in question was outfitted with an AEV lift kit, simply ask for the name of the package they used. If it is another manufacturer, you will have to do some digging. It is important to know which lift kit was used, because each one offers different specifications and performance add-ons.

Whenever you buy a car, you should know as much about it as possible. That is true whether you are buying a modded Jeep Wrangler or a Ford Focus. Knowing your car inside and out is the best way to make sure you are able to properly operate and care for it.
