I realize liquid is indeed heavy. A 19 gal tank of gas must weigh a lot, more than the average person. However, logically, most men weigh about 150 - 200 lbs ish. In reality, you sit on the left, tank is on the right. It's got to be a push for the most part.

Maybe you accidentally bought the gangster addition. By chance does it have a blue do rag hanging off the rear bumper too?

Sure you have the correct rear springs?

Front = 68196006AA

Rear = 68196009AA

Now I wonder if I have the correct rear springs. Mine indicate they are newer PN's in sequence with the fronts.

You guys have HD tow package?

I don't know... mines loaded with painted hardtop and fenders. I'd be interested to find out what the difference is.. we need a thread with model, options, spring PN's and measurements to compare.

I've always thought mine rides a little higher in the rear than some I've seen in photos on this site.

I did a quick parts search and found this ... 2012 Rubicon rear right/left spring.

They must have ran out of 10A springs.

SPRING LEFT for 2012 Jeep Wrangler|68024461AA

Measure from the center hub to bottom of the fender lip at the radius... front and back ... both sides. Post that up and I will compare to mine. In one of these threads I documented mine when it was new.

Mine started at 22.5" at all four corners when brand new and the front settled in and lost .5".

The following is from my post on 4-22.....

Mine measures 22.0" front and 22.5" rear... center hub to bottom of fender lips.

A US gallon of gasoline weighs 6.073 pounds. A JK holds 18.6 gallons. A full tank of fuel weighs 112.96 pounds.

I suffered through some petroleum engineering classes.

I wouldn't be surprised if Chrysler's response is "It's normal".

I had a $62K 2005 Toyota Land Cruiser that leaned 1/2" ... I complained and that was their exact response, with the added statement "the specificaton is 0.5" lean tolerance."

I asked them for the engineering and assembly drawing that stated this specification. In the end I just laughed and cranked the front driver side torsion bar so the damn thing sat level.

If you look at mid-2000 Land Cruisers, you see this lean. I believe it's designed in help with front impact stats.

My 10A sits level side-to-side with my odd-ball 10A rear springs.
