Thanks I'll look at spacers some more and the Terraflex. It occurs to me that the Call of Duty version has Mopar(AEV) bumpers on it and I should look at what hey did for suspension on that set up - it might give me a starting point.

Boss , do you have more pictures of your jeep with the Teraflex 1.5 setup ? , I have a 2013 JKUR and just put a bumper and winch on the front and was now thinking about doing the leveling coils , just curious how it looks.... Here is my front end

Adding Bumper

I just ordered the extreme terrain Barricade Trail Force HD Front Bumper (about 71 pounds), and the Barricade Front Skid Plate (35 pounds), I'm thinking I should be ok with that weight and not much, if any front end sag. Just wanted to see if anyone else is familiar with these products ? Thanks....

This is why I decided to go with the Rockhard aluminum front bumper & there steel rear bumper & racks to help offset the weight of the 11k winch & front bumper. Works great no sag whatsoever! Didn't want to deal with spacers, coils etc on my stock Rubicon.
Real happy with the rear bumper set up 1st class all the way. Just a little unhappy with the front, looks great, functional but I ended up installing some black HMUW ? plastic to fill in the area between where there bumper ends (in front of grille) to cover up the exposed frame rails. They really ought to make there front bumpers wider at this point to fully cover all this exposed area's. Its just a cosmetic thing though! Anyway just my 2 cents!

Those are quality parts for sure! I think you'll be really happy with them. If you're concerned about sag you can put 100 lbs on the front bumper to see what happens, or just mount up the parts and swap springs or add spacers if the front end is lower than you'd like. The springs in your Jeep will have an effect on how it handles the extra weight, so you'll only know for sure when you have them bolted up! Let me know if you have any questions at all.
