I want to get the Warn elite bumpers, but only the front one is available currently. The rear only pre-order.

If I installed only the front, would the front end be tipped down from the extra weight only at the front?

Not sure if this helps but I have a Moab (which comes standard with steel front and plastic rear bumpers) so there's a weight difference but it still sits level from what I can tell.

I have an DV8 FS-15 bumper with a 12K winch on the front and a stock plastic bumper in the rear and I do not notice any sag.

We run the steel OEM bumper on our JLUR and have the standard plastic rear. No issues here whatsoever....except the standard LED fog light flicker.

I had an LoD Destroyer (full, with bull bar) steel up front & stock plastic on the rear until I was finally able to find a rear steel model I liked. I noticed absolutely no tipping towards the front (2-door here).

Just one more reason not to get a MOab

Actually, maybe jeep figured out the rear bumper sux as far as protecting
