    Anyone running a winch on the front without a lift?

    I understand that OME makes heavier coils for their lifts with winches and heavy bumpers. Does anyone make stiffer coils in a factory height?

    OME has coils for different height/weight based on your needs.

    you have the choice of...

    880
    881
    882
    883

    for coils. Not really a heavy duty coil that doesn't give some lift. But the point is that you'll have more weight on the front anyways so then they would squat a bit anyways..

    I'm resurrecting this thread

    I'd like to get an ARB Bumper so my Taco doesn't turn into a pile of nachos if I hit an Elk at 70mph
    I've done a little bit of research and I know all the coils (like OME 882 and such) people like to run with the ARB Bumper set-up; but, they all lift the vehicle at the same time

    Is there a heavy duty coil that would support something like an ARB Bumper without lifting the vehicle?!?!
