    I have the 5100's in front and I am using the stock trd offroad coilovers on them set at 2.5, my question is I have an all pro front bumper and a m8000 warn winch I am going to be putting on the weight is about 194 lbs 120 for the bumoper and 74 for the winch. Will my front suspension be able to handle it? Or will I have to upgrade my coilovers?

    Thanks

    I think the 5100s will be fine but the coils probably won't and will need to be upgraded. Don't quote me on it though.

    Yeah, I would probably just go with the fox 2.0s, just make sure they are set up for the additional weight. The stock TRD coils will probably start sagging pretty quick. Hopefully someone else will give their input soon.

    That's overload for your coils.

    The stock coils are progressive with a 375lb rate. You've also got them heavily preloaded with that Billy setting. Add a bumper and winch, compressed even more.

    For a comparative example, OME 88x series coils for first gens are 500 lb spring rate. Check out the description on Wheeler's site for an idea about application and sag with heavy bumpers/winches. See 881 and especially 882:

    Hey I really appreciate the answers, I think after what I have been reading i am going to go with the fox 2.0 from all pro since I live close to them and they are pretty BA.
    Guess Ill sell my 5100 make a few pennies and do it right

    Yerp. That's what I'm thinking, too.
