    Hey guys. Wanted to know from those of you out there with upgraded heavy bumpers (ARB and such), what kind of suspension systems would handle the weight of an ARB + Winch (aprox. 60lbs). Looking to add an extra 3'' on the truck and don't want the unit to sag significantly in the front after adding the new front end components. Thanks.

    This should do it. If you want 3" with all the weight then 886 with OME shocks is a good setup to go with. I'm running the 885 coils because I didn't want 3" and prefer a little softer ride.

    I have the OME 886's with a ARB bumper and Warn 8000# winch. The ride is firm but it is a truck and I have no weight in the back with the Dakar springs. I still have the stock tires and it doesn't look too bad with stockers but it could use something bigger.
