From what I understand, you would need to run the 886's if you're adding the weight of a plate bumper.

I run the 885s on 5100's, pretty much like you had the 5100's first. I like them alot except for washboard and rocky trails. They suck.

People say not to match them because the shocks aren't valved for the OME springs. I believe the 5100's are digressive while OME schocks are progressive. They do ride and handle nice on road with this setup. Wheeling technical trails they do very well too. Regular dirt trails that aren't rocky and this setup does good.

I was bombing down a rough paved country road with an FJ and a Jeep and I went quicker and handled better than both. (FJ stock Jeep lifted). Both kept sliding around and had to go real slow over the rougher stuff.
