    I want a limited lift, something for bigger tires, and the ability to have an aftermarket bumper/winch mount and possibly a snow blade in winter. Should I be doing OME springs and bilsteins with an AAL in the rear? I may not do the blade so will that make a big difference in what I choose?

    if you are gonna go with a heavy plate bumper....yeah, you'll need some beefier coils than the stockers.....and aal for the rear is a great idea.

    depending on the coils you get....it will be a good bit stiffer..........but i dont think it'll be too bad.

    get the 886 coils.....and some ome shocks with them....they are valved for those specific coils. i have the billy 5100's.....i like them, but for ride quality....the ome's are gonna be better i think.
