I would agree with you, but most of those are the tubeless bumper that comes with the COD or Freedom Ed.

Everyone's running stubby's around here and that alone means I won't.

I welcome the input and would agree with you.

I remember reading the reason why people ditched their full width bumpers for stubbys, but now I can't remember the reason...

but, anyway, if it were me and I was going to get one of those two full width bumpers, I'd go with ARB, I prefer their products and styling over AEV.

Strange part. On the drivers side it looks like nose diving, from the passenger side it looks fine. I'm goin to have to do some measuring

that is weird...

when you installed your springs, did you loosen all of your control arm bolts and track bar bolts, and then retorque them to spec once the springs were in and the jeep was back at ride height on level ground?

Only thin I loosened was my tracbar, which I retorqued. No need to loosen control arms and such

It is probably my eyes messing with me

I imagine you didn't need to loosen them to install the springs, but you should loosen them and retorque at their new height. one or more of them might be binding and could explain your jeep's weird stance. assuming your jeep even has a weird stance, which we won't know until you measure it.

Sleep in your jeep on the passenger side so your fat ass can compress the springs on that side to even it out.

I know the approach angles and crawling ability are greater but I prefer the full width look. I'm thinking ARB too.
