Bilstein 5100 with Under Cover Winch
I have read a lot of threads on suspension upgrades, and decided I do not want to go over 2.5" of lift. I am also more confused than when I started reading.

I am going to add a winch at some point, and an extra battery. But that's all the additional weight. It's a light weight winch mount too:

Will the Bilstein 5100's with an AAL in the rear be suitable for this? I read that other people with winches on the front have a bad ride with 5100s.

Is there a full replacement OME lift that will not take me over 2.5" of lift that would be better?

I've got the 5100's and Eibach's and am getting the All-Pro front bumper in a few months and am wondering the same thing.

I currently run 5100's on all 4 corners and eibachs springs up front/ aal in the rear. I also have a warn 8000i with synthetic so about 58 pound's give or take and a brute force bumper (at least another 100 pounds). 5100 set at .85 after settling didnt quite give me 2.5" of lift but the ride was still better then stock. it was better then stock before the winch, and it was better then stock before the bumper/winch. you can get ome lift with different coils for various weight and or lift up front. 884 885 886 i believe give you lift and work with more or less weight up front but 883 doesn't i think. someone can chime in and correct me if thats wrong but im pretty sure. hope that helps
