    I'm thinking of getting an ARB bull bar/winch bumper for my new 2010 Tacoma. Could anyone that owns one chime in on this... will the added weight require me to lift the front and/or add heavier coils (886s, etc), or will I be okay stock? I will be adding a winch as well, just not right away. Gotta save up for that! Thanks for your input.

    My buddy did his on an FJ. The winch and bumper were a little low and soft on 885s, but on 886s they are perfect.

    This also means I have a nearly free set of 885s for me! :D
