Should I be concerned with my weight?

Now that Spring has Sprung and Summer is on the way...I can start my mods!!!

I plan to have my Gobi Rack installed with 40" LED LIGHT BAR (In Garage for two months now) and since you have to remove the bumpers for the install, why not change those too! I also want to add the PreRunner Gaurd as well. Thinking of Rugged Ridge XHD!

If I'm doing that...I may want to add a winch as well...Warn Poweplant!

Here is what I'm thinking...With all this added weight, do I need a LIFT???

Let me know your thoughts...HAPPY HUMP DAY!!!

You wont need a lift... I'd advise it though. You could just add a leveling kit and I would think you'd be fine.

The title is misleading. I thought you were having trouble getting in the jeep or something! But now I see it's not that at all..

Lol...I had a feeling this thread was going to get some funny responses, but it never took off. Sorry for the confusion!

Thanks for the info on the leveling kit, but like you stated I may opt for the lift.

I thought the same thing, i was hoping for pictures of a struggling man half way in his jeep!

And id get a lift if i were you, dont do what i did and go with the popular rough country lift... it is so stiff and sucks when you drive down a bumpy road. i would look in to Rubicon Express, i always see people giving them good reviews!

In all seriousness take some bumper height measurements on all four corners before and after your installs of the equipment you mentioned and then figure out how much you need to level if at all.

That's a great pic...Sounds like a great idea on the measurements.

Thinking of a lift after all. Any recommendations?

Does anyone know the highest I can go before having to extend pipes and do other mods. Looking to bolt on the highest lift possible with minimum work.

Please advise...Thanks!
