cant decide how much to level the jeep

sometimes the jeep sits level and other times it seems like its really nose heavy.

i have a 1/2" spacer right now that i can put in and im thinking about getting an additional 3/4" spacer too. i would prefer to not have an extremely high nose though. im also rubbing a bit in the front even with the cut fenders so its not all for looks.

what do yall think? just throw the 1/2" spacer in and call it good or go for 1 1/4"?

looks good here


front looks low here

Hard to tell from the first pic ...it's dark and I've been sippin' bourbon all night. I'd just put in the 1/2" spacer. Add another if needed later.

i would rather just have to do it once since im borrowing a lift after hours to do it at no cost. so i dont want to have to ask the guy to come down more than he has to.

he works crazy hours and has 2 kids. one has cystic fibrosis.

I don't know leman, it looks pretty good to me. I personally like the rear higher than the front. I'd have to try the 1/2" first and see... If you raise the front to much with a load (gear or passengers) the rear will sit low.

If you are rubbing think about a 1" body lift....

measure at the frame to get accurate sag, hard to tell in the pics. Mine has a bad rake with my TF 2.5 coils with winch and front bumper, I am about to add 1.5 inch front spacers.
