Jeep unlevel.

What can I use to make sure my jeep is level. Everything ive looked at is either slanted or just made uneven on the jeep. I went off of the bottom of my fender flares and the front is a little lower then the back but, when I put a level on the top of the place the softop holds on onto on the side of the back of the jeep. Its leaning backward. When I put it on the frame itself in the midde of the jeep its leaning backwards. Is there anything I can go off of to know if my jeeps level? the fenders dont seem to work. Also is my jeep leaning back a little a major issue?

Maybe try putting a level under the rocker panels, seems like the largest supposedly level surface on the body of the Jeep.

I don't know why you care but I'd put a level under the rockers on the sheet metal.The ground would have to be perfectly level too.It makes no difference if it's level or not.I raise the front of my Jeeps 3/4" higher to make them look more level.They still sit 1" higher in the rear(as measured by the tire/fender flare clearance).It works for me.

I need some door surrounds. PM me if you know where I can get some used ones for a decent price.

I have a 6" long arm lift with 3 inches of spacer on my front bumpstop right now and the steering wasnt squirlly like it is now untill I put it on. It seems like all the weight is leaning back now. Just kinda seems like Ill be more prone to flip backwards when crawling larger obstacles.
