It's not sagging. It's just sad because you put a JK forum sticker on it.

Oh oh!! Whilst I agree........I digress.



Have you thought about what would happen if you had a 150lb tire on the back? It could help with the rake. You'll probbably want some coil spacers up front to help out with the sag and get a tire in the back...

Depending on size, the 5th wheel can be as heavy as a winch or aftermarket bumper.

Also, the front end rake actually helps with drag and therefor MPG... if you care.

Soon to be a vendor!!!

The tire will certainly help offset the rake, how much depends on the tire. I don't think it's unreasonable for it to bring the back down that far. A good way to 'test' is to take measurements and then put artificial weights in the far back of the jeep to simulate a tire.....a person of comparable mass to your tire will work. Then measure again and see what you've got.

The back bumper only has a few good mounting points so be strategic with your placement of the fat chick. Deuces read that one perfectly to get what I was saying without 'saying' it haha.

Normally I'd expect an AEV lift to level the front and back out. Are you sure you have the springs installed right?

yeah i called them up and they if i get a tire and bumper it will level out. my rear is lifted like 3.5 and front is 2.5 so the extra weight in the back will help me out a lot
