RRO leveling kit give a proper stance?

I want the leveling kit on my '13 WK2, but I'm concerned it raises the front slightly higher than the rear. (Which I think is a bad look). Can anyone convince me that it looks right?

I installed the kit the other day. It looks level to me and the front does not look higher than the rear. I think it looks great and it rides pretty much like it did before I installed.

That's great to hear! The last thing I want is to regret having it on there. I definitely don't want the full 2" lift kit or to have to worry with any other kind of spacer to lift the rear. Would you mind posting a few pics of your Jeep?

I'll sell u the trim kit. I bought it intentionally to add to the 2.5" RRO lift. But found it was a bltch to install the shocks with the trim kit on. So I took them off and install went well.

Trim kit was only 40 bucks. It adds 3/8 inch to the front. Asking the 40 I'll handle shipping

Re: RRO leveling kit give a proper stance?

Crap, now you've added another option to the lineup! I didn't know the trim packer kit existed. However, I don't know that 3/8" would give a visual difference. I think I'm still leaning towards the leveling kit, just need to know for sure that it provides a good stance. (Not "nose up")

Re: RRO leveling kit give a proper stance?

I almost got the leveling kit for mine, but evetually decided against it because I was seeing quite a few photos of people who looked to be sitting higher in the front afterwards. It may have been just an illusion effect combined with people not taking a level photo to begin with, but it definitely appears to sag in the back just bit to my eyes.

Not to throw a wrench in your decision. Just my opinion.

Re: RRO leveling kit give a proper stance?

I hear you, so you agree that any rear sag is a horrible look. While I hate the extreme forward rake (looks weak) any rear rake would look like a lift gone wrong. Is there anyone out there that can convince us that the RRO leveling kit gives the Jeep a strong stance? Pics and/or measurements would be very helpful!
