Advice on leveling my TJ

I have installed the Body Armor triple hoop front bumper with XRC 8k lbs. winch with driving lights. Now I have added more weight in the front and looks like slightly lower. What kind of leveling kit should I use to on it? Will the BB work for this situation? What kind of BB do you recommend?

~3/4" spacers up front similar to a BB should work just fine. Size of the spacer is determined by the lift you actually need obviously.

Like indicated above, 3/4 to 1" spacers are commonly used. You don't need a "BB kit" All you need is a spacer. 3/4 are more commonly found than 1". Note, the stock stance is a slightly lower nose. Some add a spacer just to level the stock stance.

Is there anything that will need to be done once I installed the 3/4-1" spacers? Such as Wheel alignment or other adjustment in the front suspension to prevent the death wobble issue.

Any time you mess with the suspension you will want to do a front end alignment, fortunately if you can use a tape measure and a wrench it's pretty simple, check out the link.

You could put in a couple ACOS spacers...

Great looking product...rather to get a suspension lift for that kind of price.
