no, your not completely wrong, just a little.
the main reasoning behind a leveling kit is to take care of the factory rake that the jeeps comes with from the factory (stock).
putting on a heavy bumper and running a larger winch will not only cause the rake in time to improve but will also start wearing out your stock shocks and coils to the point you'll be sitting on your bumpstops...
which is why, suspension companies and vendors highly recommend an after market coil suspension lift if your running heavy bumpers and winches/ skid plates.
so my recommendation,
put on the 2.5" coil lift from teraflex and add on coil spacers in the front. overtime, your jeep will slowly but surely start to decrease in height.
