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...

im getting a tire in the back within a month or so but do you think the tire will bring down the back by an inch?

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.

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.

^^^ He's saying put a fat chick on the bumper... DO NOT CALL HER A FAT CHICK THOUGH. To this DAY my wife thinks she is the reason for my JK's "lean"

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
