    Alright,
    I really want the All Pro Front bumper and to handle that weight, I was just gonna go simple and just put in the billies up front and back.
    plus it would be cheap too.
    some people say id sag in front but others say id be fine.

    I really need this question ended now.
    should I get the billies or save up for the ultimate lift kit from toytec? If I do that than the sound system will have to wait to.

    if I do get the billies and set it to 2.5, can I put on 285/70/17 tires without worrying about ALOT of rubbing? A little trimming is fine but I dont wanna do anything TOO drastic.

    I AT LEAST want 2.5 inches of lift.

    Thanks in advance.
    I apologize for asking such a nooby question. :eek:

    No sir, if I ever get the money too I will, but that will be well in like 3 years.
    so right now, it's just the bumper

    I don't think it would sag too much, how much does the bumper weigh? Don't you remove the stock bumper cover and metal bumper?

    about 80-100 lbs. Its all metal.

    And Chris, Billy 5100s with OME 885 coils will keep you from sagging and still give you your 2.5" of lift.

    I have 285/70/R17 tires with my Billy 5100s. I have rubbing on the UCAs at full turn and I barely rub the frame at full turn going backwards. Its only on the drivers side due to a wrong spec for my alignment. It couldn't be perfect with the stock UCAs. They are designed to handle that size tire.

    Yes for the AP bumper you have to remove the front bumper "skin" and the bumper reinforcement.

    You can pick up a set of OME 885 coils pretty cheap if you are too worried about the weight. They will give you a lot of extra support. I don't have the ARB but on my stock bumper they gave me 2" of lift. The Billies are a definite yes.

    So do you think id be fine with the billies set to 2.5 with the OME 886 coils? Ride doesnt really bother me. But then again, I dont want it feeling like im riding on a rhinoceros on crack, ya know?

    Im getting torn apart right now, the sound system i dont really need yet. and without that in the way, I can simply just gtet the ULK from Toytec, and people told me that those coils could handle the AP Front bumper.

    i dont even listen to that much rap or stuff with bass anyway..

    Do you think the C/O's from toytec will be able to hold that weight?

    2.5? I thought it went up to 3 inches?
    and when I get it in the mail, Im probably gonna go over to alabama and get lents to help me install it. how long did it take? Better than waiting overnight while its in the shop.

    and the UCA's, since im gonna let the sound system wait, Im gonna probably go with total chaos, heard great stuff about em.

    crap bolted and welded together....
    i had the same problem you posted now. i posted awhile ago about this issue as well. chris4X4 said that 885's and billies all around would help the best and later on get some UCA's. They say that the AP ways about 120 lbs from the people i asked, and the stocker ways about 50 or less. I'm running a 3in spacer up front, so i need to get 885's and shocks soon after bumper or its gunna look like my front end is down WAYYYYY to far.

    Just so you know I added an ARB and winch a couple weeks ago with 5100's and stock coils. Sagged about 1/2" so far.
