Upgraded Front Suspension with after market bumper

Ok I may look into getting an after market bumper at some point, possibly armor tech, what type, if any, of upgrades to the front suspension should I consider to handle the extra weight?

Nothing too crazy, and sorry I meant an ARB bumper, not armor tech. But I probably wont go with anything as big and heavy as an ARB.

If I was to put a bruteforce hybrid on my 2012 dbcb would I need the 886's or would I get by with the 885's give me your opinion with and without a winch.

Also I do have 5100s up front set at 1.75, apologies for not stating that in my original post. I understand the OME 886s are lifting coils and possibly shouldnt be used with 5100s set at anything other than 0.

Just looking to maybe get a decent plate bumper for functionality and looks, I do a little off-roading but nothing crazy.

Not to thread jack, but I had kinda the same question, I'm interested in getting an ARB bumper as well, but I want to keep my ride height as close to stock as possible (I like the slight slant it has stock), so what is needed to keep the front from sagging and losing handling without actually lifting the truck? I have the rear TSB and the TRD Off Road....
