AEV / Superlift 4” Suspension: A combined effort of design, engineering and marketing between the two companies for the WK and XK suspension. This particular car is lifted 4” front and rear. In the rear the suspension was modified to push the rear axle back 5” (127mm) so that the body could be cut out without affecting the rear doors. This also took care of the rear overhang on the Commander.
Wheels & Tires: Operating at 2-5 psi requires specialized wheels and tires. Interco provided super flexible 39.5×13.50R17 SuperSwamper IROK tires to the expedition. Wheels were of special concern, not only does the Commander have an odd fitment, but the wheels also had to be a double beadlock design. AEV decided to work with Hutchinson Wheels, a company best known for manufacturing military wheels. AEV issued the oddball specs and in no time Hutchinson came through with a one of a kind set of two piece wheels with an internal beadlock to fit the Commander perfectly. The really good news is that these wheels will now be an available option on all AEV Grand Cherokee and Commander conversions.
