2013 Rubicon vs 2013 10th Anniversary Rubicon Suspension

A friend at work parked his 2013 10th Anniversary Rubicon Unlimited (4dr) next to my 2013 Rubicon (2dr) this morning and it looked higher. So I had to go out with a measuring tape to check the difference from the ground:

to bottom of hitch: mine 17", his 18"
to bottom seam on front door: mine 22.5", his 24"
to bottom of outside front wheel flare: mine 35.5, his 37.5"

Both are stock (with the exception of ACE rock rails on mine), so he has the 10A steel bumpers and I have the much lighter plastic bumpers. Anyone know what they did with the 10A to give it more clearance even with the heavier bumpers?

Not sure if it would make much difference but he has 265/70/17 tires, you have 255/75/17.
Your tire 32.1" his tire, 31.7"
Check that... His tire is smaller overall diameter. I hope someone has an answer, I'd like to know too.

The stance on the 10A is also much more subtle than mine, almost like he has a leveling kit (which the 10A seems to have since the difference in height increases as you go from back to front)...

10a has a slightly taller and tighter springs to leveling out. Was one of the better selling points of the 10a actually as it basically does come level from the factoey
