Bumpers w/o a lift ?

I have a question about getting bumpers but not a lift right away. I have a 2011 JKUR. I fugure with the stiffer spings it would not sag or would not sag as much. The bumpers that I have been looking at have been the full width ARB or Warn bumpers. No winch as of yet, that would wait for the lift. I was just wondering if my thoughts were correct.

That could potentially be dangerous, bottoming out or blow a shock with the travel the 33s provide.

bengen - do you have any photos that you could post of before you had the ranchos? I'd be interested to see how it looks! Thanks!
