This is a follow up thread to my request for recommendations for added load capacity. That thread was very helpful and has given me the direction I need to pursue.
The other thread basically got me to an OME lift kit with 885s and Dakars. I decided it would be a good idea to go ahead and get the UCAs as well. I don't do any off-roading except for some serious beach driving while loaded down and some construction site stuff.
Since I decided on the lift, I have fallen in love with front off road bumpers and I simply must have one. I have narrowed it down to DO or Relentless in Aluminum and a few others if I want to go with steel, mostly based on looks and weight.
Were I to do aluminum, I would simply stick with the 885 plan and that would be that, unless I hear otherwise.
But, there are some longer lead times with aluminum and I am considering having a 2" receiver installed up front which DO does not offer in Aluminum, not sure about Relentless. So, to make a long story short I am also considering Steel up front.
I do not plan on having a winch, unless I need to mount it to the 2" hitch for emergency purposes. In 12 years of driving that beach, I have never needed a winch. The hitch is mostly to accommodate a fishing basket that I put up front.
So do I need 886 coils with a steel bumper or do I just stick with the 885s. Not planning on doing anything with the back.
Looks like I will doing the lift before bumper. Thanks. and 2013 DCLB
