4 years later, the TJ needs a bit of work. So decided to do some more upgrades/maintenance and document it on youtube.

In the end, I'm hoping to build a reliable touring TJ to tow a small camper that can also mix it on weekend club trips.

Was really lucky with them, couldn't find any in the US, and just luckily came across a set that a local retailer had in stock.
Are the AEV wheels the 17" Pintlers with the JK lug spacing? I know AEV made Bridger wheels for the TJ for a while, and they were similar to the Pintlers, but they stopped making those years ago. But who knows what was offered down under...;)

These are the TJ specific 17x8.5" Pintlers, AEV discontinued production of them in 2012.
The Bridger rims were a 16" sizing.

Hey guys,

Foolishly let go of my last TJ (4.5"RE, 33's with 4.57's and ARB lockers)

So after my mum passing, and being left her 2005 TJ we did a few upgrades and just enjoyed the car. 2.5" OME HD LIFT, AEV Rims, 32" KM2's, Metalcloak front bar and ARB rear bar.
