I'm not quite as concerned about playing AJ postflop against one opponent out of position, but it's too easy for one of the other 7 or 8 random hands to be something that beats AJ.
With AQ, I'm more comfortable as it is significantly easier to play postflop.
I think the best way to play AJ, AQ, KQ in early position is to simply call and see if enyone raises after you. Also it' s very important if you' re stack is big or short. I only raise in early position AA, KK, QQ, JJ, TT. For me AQ never works in early position, AJ is good.
