Height after installing new bumpers and winch

Hello Guys

Jeep started out with a three inch lift and after installing front and rear bumpers, winch and sliders it is sagging a bit . I am considering replacing the springs with AEV progressives or just adding spacers , what do you guys think

Pics are included tires are 33x10.5 bfg on 15x8x4.75bs soft eights

Thanks in advance

I also have an LJ not sure if that makes a difference with the weight or not. I also do not have the hardtop on at this time.

You could prolly add a leveling kit up front...but you may end up needing an SYE if it changes your driveline angles too much. I hear Jeeps are naturally setup with the front lower than the rear and as you lift em higher, that angle becomes much more noticeable.
