    Yes, James, he also has steel armor and heavy bumper, which work well together.

    Yeah, those 650 might be a decent option for what I want. Then again, standard 600 could do the job as well... Maybe not at full 2" though

    That is what I was thinking. If you know the weight of bumper and winch you want headstrong might be able to give you a good idea.

    All of my asking questions and stuff I the end is not going to make a difference... At least not now. CFO didn't approve my mod budget (rightfully so, some other spending coming up) , so winch and bumper for now will stay on my wish list.

    Slightly heavy with front plate bumper w/ full hoops, 12k winch, dual batteries in engine bay and 1/4” reinforced skids.

    And yes, the 6112/700# combo work very well.

    @HolyHandGrenade is lighter than me up front coz he has no dual batteries and a measly hybrid bumper. Lol

    On the other hand, he has a heavy ass.


    Which he’s trying to work off the weight with his new yoga moves.

    He's got a 10k winch and reinforced cross member. You might have him beat though.

    Yeah my 75 pound battery cost me about a hundred bucks. How much was your 75 pounder?

    Just read all 53 pages. Lots of good info.

    Question: anyone running 6112s with 35” rubber?
    I’m trying to find some feedback on how they handle that much sprung weight. My tire and wheel combo is about 125lbs per corner and the OEM Sport coils reused for the 6” BDS kit just don’t seem up to the task and don’t keep their composure.

    Wheels and tires are unsprung weight. More specifically, rotating mass. Your suspension shouldn’t care what’s under it.

    Correct. Long day and got it wrong. Appreciate it

    Your statement about the suspension not caring about reaction to tire movement had me concerned. Controlling mass is important. Dampening, to me, is even more important.

    I was thinking of getting these shocks & pairing them up with 5160's for the rear I am wanting to set them @ 2" but how is the ride quality on these shocks on & off road? Is it smoother than stock or stiffer?

    You know? I’m no suspension expert. I also have no experience with drop bracket lifts whatsoever. I probably should’ve kept quiet. Carry on :thumbsup:

    I have the 6112s up front on settings 3/4 on my ACLB. I’m noticing a bit more body roll on turns than I was stock. At least I feel that it’s more noticeable. Everything else about the ride quality is stiffer and more stable feeling than stock though. I thought I would have a tighter ride on turns than stock. My toytec ultimate lift kit on my 2015 had very little body roll after the lift.

    I’ve been debating on moving the settings up a notch to get a bit more height and be a bit more level. And also thinking the extra preload would help mitigate some of the body roll. But now I’m wondering if going with the 650# springs on my current settings would yield a better result with the body roll and also getting a little more height. I plan to eventually have a hidden winch/lo pro bumper so I was contemplating the heavier springs anyway.

    What do you guys think? Anyone been in a similar situation?
