Worried about "Squatty" look

After reading Kjeeper10 post about is Jeep looking lower in the rear after he installed his Teraflex Coil lift it got me thinking.
I really don't notice that big of a rake on my KJ stock unlike the TJ I use to own. So today I went out and measured from center of the hub up to my fender flare. I got 20.5 inches on both fronts and 20.75 inches on the rear.
My question is.... If I install the Teraflex 2.5 coil lift, will the front of my jeep be way higher than the rear seeing how I am already starting off almost level?
I have a 2012 2 Door JK sport.
I plan on getting the exhaust spacers and going with 285/75/16

Possibly, sean at nr told me its because they anticipate people lifting will put heavier bumpers on.

I also have the TF 2.5" coil. It sits higher in the front with a stock bumper. No measurement off hand, just visual observation. Makes since that they "plan" for we Jeep folk to keep modding. Lol.
Do not perform any mod for looks alone, mod for function. I promise you if you plan your mods to improve function, you will have a Jeep that "looks" the way you want.
