OME Leafs - Which ones?

Planning my lift. Looking at getting OME, leafs only. What should I run in front and back? Front will be a getting new bumper, approx. 100lb and possibly a winch - 95lbs. Rear will also get new bumper w/tire swing - approx. 175 lbs with tire. Any thoughts?

When in doubt go with the heavy duty.

Where are you guys buying just the springs? Does OME sell the direct or do you have to go thru a vendor?

36r = heavy duty 5 leaf spring
14f = medium duty 4 leaf spring

The 36r spring will handle more weight (hard top, winch, lots of armor, heavy tire carrier, etc). 14f spring will work well with lighter rigs (soft top, light armor, etc)

I run the 14f springs all around with a winch, tire carrier, heavy rocker guards, soft top and doors and it hasn't sagged at all. Great ride on and off road. Very flexy as well.

I have the 36r in the back and 14s up front. Should've gone 36 all around. That said with my bumper, gear, and friends in the back I was sagging so I added the OME add a leafs in the back and now it's plush but will handle a lot of weight. I love the ride. I've had mine almost 3 years and the ride is great and the flex is amazing with them too. Highly recommended.
