MOAB 2009:A wild ride with Aev's Jim Frens (Video included)

Jim Frens is the guy at AEV that engineers the suspension, he can also drive like no other! We took a demo drive in the new AEV 5.7 hemi with manual trans. This 4dr JK rubicon was tricked out with the 3.5" Aev/nth left,Aev wheels,New good year mtrs and of coarse Aev hood,new rear bumper and front bumper. I have to say that this new JK lift is totally impressive! This JK had next to no body roll on the street and handled awsome in the dirt. Watch the vids....

I did a test ride with Jim also. That jeep is sweet. The suspension is more impressive than the Hemi.

Hemi = Impressive
Nth Suspension = Impressive
Camera Work = Not so much.


lol I bet that was a very fun ride. Aside from how I feel about the rear bumper's looks, everything AEV puts out = Impressive.

I actually thought the rear bumper was pretty impressive in person.




Just got a chance to actually watch the videos. They don't do it justice at all.

I used my cell phone which is better than most and my hand was not exactly steady. Next year I will use my actual camera, which ran into some technical dificulties.
