Lift question...

I want a limited lift, something for bigger tires, and the ability to have an aftermarket bumper/winch mount and possibly a snow blade in winter. Should I be doing OME springs and bilsteins with an AAL in the rear? I may not do the blade so will that make a big difference in what I choose?

if you are gonna go with a heavy plate bumper....yeah, you'll need some beefier coils than the stockers.....and aal for the rear is a great idea.
