I like the grille having removable center inserts - maybe a retro "Ford" grille in chrome, white, etc

Wow. I thought I would be able to resist the upgrade itch for at least a little while with a robustly optioned BL....but I really love those rails.

Bumper mounted carrier looks pretty cool. I wonder if you can run it as a full delete. Would also be cool to be able to take the swing spare on and off, and still have brake light and camera functionality. Would need dual lights and camera.

I just want a high quality 3D printer large enough to do a grille and a scan/model of the original. I have ideas.

I like the rock sliders, I am iffy about the grill but the fact that the center bar comes out for flow or too add lights is cool.

Nice look at the rear bumper-mounted tire carrier in the video.
That is interesting about the bumper and tire mount. They would have some type of serious thought about the pivot point because the tailgate pivot is closer to the tire centerline than the bumper mount/pivot. It would be neat to see how that is working out.

The way the tire carrier swings WITH the tailgate is extremely well thought out. Does appear that it might reduce opening angle slightly but I think it’s a minor concession and totally beats having to open then separately.

These have been around for the Jeep. Benefit of a stand-alone tire carrier without having to make two moves to get to the cargo area.

3:10. That is exactly what I was wondering about. Because the pivot points are not the same the arms would need to move at different speeds, sort of similar to the diff.

Thank you for the vid.

I really like AEV stuff.
People here not in the know are going to shit once they find out how much this stuff costs if it's AEV level type quality and engineering.

No offense to anyone who likes this RTR stuff but it looks like crap to me, He should stick to mustangs and drifting IMHO. The rear bumper carrier hangs too low in the center part and I do not like the tube look, to eighties (80's) Rock siders are okay at best. The graphic way too loud for the mods on this vehicle. The light on top not bad but the wind noise will kill you., The wheels too busy will be a nightmare to clean. Sorry, I'm not feeling it. If AEV decides to get in the game, it will be unbelievable. IMHO I will wait for sema 2021

1. Rock sliders appear to be exactly what I’m looking for. More side protection for the doors. You can use as a pivot point around a tree, rock, etc.
Much more what most of us are use to. I’m assuming they are to the frame!?!?

2. The rear tire deal looks nice.
It swings with the door?!
but it still takes the weight of the tire off the door?
I think this is a great idea but unsure how this works. But looks like a nice way to solve the problem of the heavy tire ruining your read door.

edit: just watched the video @ZackDanger posted about the jeep rear tire swing gate.
Thanks for the info. This is going to be crazy expensive. 🤪
