Yj teetering going through 3 ft trenches

Like the title says, I was wheeling yesterday testing out the new bumpers and winch, (which saved my butt 2 times) and going through some 2-3 foot trenches uphill, downhill or just on level ish ground, my yj was consistently on only 3 wheels. Not too big a concern on level ground, but uphill and downhill is no joke on real steep grades. Is there any way to correct this, too light maybe?

Is your sway bar still connected?

Sway bar disconnects??? Track bars still installed??? Shock travel may be limiting the suspension. Also depends on how much lift you have and how well it all flexes.

I have both track bars removed and sway bar disconnects, but both were removed at the time. Friend was taking videos and pictures, will post when I get them.
Have anybody else had this problem, or was it just too large of an obstacle? Any thoughts?

This is not a picture of the trench obviously, just a picture of flex

Looks like you need longer shackles or boomerang shackles in the rear for sure. I can't really tell in the pic but it looks like the spring eye is contacting the frame in the rear and the spring still is not flat so therefore if you put some 1/2" lift boomerang shackles on you will get more flex.
