    Smittybilt xrc atlas front bumper
    Hello I am new to the group. I am putting a smittybilt atlas front bumper on with no lift. What would the best Option be to level out the front end until I am ready to lift? Also putting on an X20 10,000 lb winch.

    Welcome @ErrolGentry ...checkout the leveling kits from TeraFlex. OEM plastic bumper is about 45lb so the new bumper + winch could add nearly 200 +/- lb.

    Welcome @ErrolGentry . Numerous kits out there. What's your intentions with your JK? DD, lite to heavy off road?
    Basically....what build are you looking to do? There's numerous posts in the JK Build thread.
    Post up. There's several members that I'm sure will jump on and help. Myself included. For what I can add. :crazy:

    It is my DD, my ultimate plan is to lift 3.5, 35" tires, and dv8 882 beadlock wheels. Intend to relocate Grand Junction Co, and have the build done before that happens 06 2021. My son lives there and such a great location for the best offroad opportunities there are.
