    For added weight in the front, wouldn't it be better to get stronger/better springs?

    Please correct me if I'm wrong...

    3" OME lift 885s & Dakars riding on 33" KM2s Click the sig pic to see the build thread .
    886s might be too much unless the bumper is an ARB. The guy I got my lift from had a Relentless bumper with winch, BudBuilt skids & Relentless sliders. He put the 886s on when he got the bumper & winch but they were too stiff so he went back to the 885s with a 1/4" spacer.

    If that Warn product is all you are adding to the front , you could probably just go OME 885's , and OME Nitrochargers or Bilstein 5100's .

    If you do go with the OME 886 coils , go with the OME Nitrocharger shocks , not the 5100's

    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    Why don't you just put on a front receiver and put on the winch when needed? Less $ and time on maintenance, and your winch and cables will last longer.
