Bumper questions

I've got a 2010 JKU Sport, come June I will be installing a teraflex 2.5" lift, but I already have my bumper (smittybuilt xrc). I'm wondering if the stock suspension is going to handle the extra weight without causing problems? I'm pretty new to the jeep world.

The extra weight may drop your front a bit which would really accent the "factory rake" but you should still be fine with the stock suspension. you could either:

Install 3/4" spacers to give you back the height you will lose with the heavy bumper.

Wait for the TF kit and install the bumper then

Install it now and live with the loss in height and the more pronounce "factory rake"
