Measurement under rubirockers after lift

I guess AEV is thinking everyone uses a winch
the back of my rocker guard is 1/2 inch lower than the front (lifted more in front than back) after my 3 1/2 inch AEV lift.

whats your lift and how does the front and back measurements compare on yours?

the JK has a factory rake, the front is lower than the rear, that many people and lift makers work to get rid of.
And it may be that they figure most people who lift will at least go for a steel bumper replacement if not a winch.

The design of the AEV lift takes into consideration extra weight from bumpers, skids and winches. Vehicle heights will vary based on configurations. You can use a rear spacer or get that bumper and winch combo you've been thinking about .

Itís kinda hard to make a kit that fits everyoneís needs. Like said above get the spacer, thatís what there for. Better flex it somewhere and check your rock sliders and pinch seem. Just might have to trim there a bit.
Your Jeep looks good lifted by the way.

I couldnít stand it if was high in the front. If it were mine I would do the spacer thing. A front rake is always better than a rear one. Of course you could always add a front bumper and winch to solve your problem too.

I like it higher in the front. Just looks bad ##s But if you buy a spacer I recommend the teraflex rear spacer. It is different then any other on the market.There is a rubber boot built on the spacer that goes inside the hole in the factory insulator to hold the spring in place.

Ya, I just ordered a couple for the rear. I had one of my rear springs un-seat so these TeraFlex spacers are supposed to guide them back in place. Donít have them yet but 1inch spacers that are about a 1/2inch taller than stock. I want a slight front rake.

I hate when the front sits higher than the rear, I like the forward rake. Same happened to me when I did a small lift on my TJ, I just got spacers for the rear and I was happy. Also, If you ever do get a bumper/winch, and the jeep squats too much in the front, you can always take the rear spacer out to level it out again.

yeah the back part is inclined where its parked is lvl
and even if it was parked on incline that should make a minimal impact on measurements under the rocker right?
