The rear is about 1/2 inch higher than the front. Can't really tell unless I measure it though.
If your Jeep is similair to mine, 4.0 automatic, soft top, no winch, 20 gal fuel tank, light spare it should ride great if you do what I did. My Jeep replaced my well built Rhino after watching several Rhino accidents. I just didn't trust them anymore. Also, the Rhino started using oil after 3500 miles and I took good care of it. 3500 miles? That's one Jeep oil change!
This Jeep will whoop my Rhino's butt and I had $15,000 into the Rhino.

Let us know what you decide on.

Hey Crisnvegas

If youve still got 14f for the front, then you and I have different setups.... Ive got 37r in the front. Thats the "light duty" rear spring....

I have 36R's front & back. I have the 2.5L, warn 9000 in front & 1/2" boom shackles, an 8.8 in the rear with 1" lift booms. A swing out tire carrier 33" spare & Jerry can. No sway bar or track bars.

My front sits a full inch higher than the rear. The rear sags even more with camping gear. It rides great even with crappy shocks. I'm going to replace the rear springs with 3.5" BDS springs soon and Bilstien shocks, add some extended bump stops and probably go back to stock length shackles in front.

I use my Jeep for rock crawling, trail rides, Hunting rig & I drive it regularly (because its fun)


92YJ with some stuff done to it.
