That said I have no concern with my setup, its a JK thats 6800+ lbs
I'm using the shackle tabs on my Expedition One front bumper.
Another option...IMO best.
If you have the room behind the passenger tail light like the JK's do install the smallest ARB compressor their. Its quite unlike a cabin mounted compressor.
Then get a Power Tank..
I can fill my all 4 40's with a Power Tank faster than any on board compressor their...

Yes get the suspension you want and then get a skid plate system that doesn't limit droop. Any other choice is a huge compromise.
IMO its designed for a street Jeep not one that rock crawls.
For the $$$ you could have a off road shop build you a skid plate from steel or Al.
FYI the RockHard Al skids will NOT work with any suspension that actually has droop. Just tried installing on a 2021 JLU Rubicon Diesel using a 3.5' MC lift. The front drive shaft will hit the skid cross member when the suspension is fully drooped. I'm sure it would also happen fully flexed.
