Same as the jeep. Don't know how stiff your springs are but if they are stiff more weight will soften them... sort of.... IMO

Charley24 That's interesting. I changed out my steel cable for synthetic line to take weight off the front of mine. It's all about balancing the load.

Better ride with a winch

Has anyone noticed a better more solid ride after putting on a winch? Just put a new Warn winch on the front of my '94 with no track bars. Noticed no more of a jumping of the front end driving down the road. I know the extra weight helps the jumping.
