t.petron Will The ride be affected with coil spacers at all?

sdptrey Buy 1.25" coil spacers. Worked great for me. You may be able to get away with .75 or 1" also.

Dextreme Some will add a small spacer on the front coils to bring the Jeep back to level.

I remember someone asking the same question and the suggested advice I saw was go out and stand on your front bumper to get a idea of how the weight will change the stance (they typically add about 100-150lbs)

Buying a winch/suspension questions

So im a high school jeeper with a limited amount of money and I am looking to buy a decent winch so I can do some off-roading when I go to college out in the mountains.

I am also wondering about what the suspension is going to do with that much extra weight on the front end. Will it sag a noticeable amount, or anything like that?

I have a 1999 TJ Sahara with 212,xxx miles
