To the Jeeper searching our site to learn whether or not AEV’s 3.5-inch lift maintains the factory nose-down take, the answer is yes. All AEV lifts maintain the rake. A few Jeeps have unique-enough weight distribution that they sit nearly level post-lift, but AEV does intend to keep the nose-down stance.
Hope this helps! Post up a comment and let us know what lift you end up going with. Or, check out @SmokeyTheJeep on Instagram, and tag us in a pic of your ride.
