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?:confused:

I have a 1999 TJ Sahara with 212,xxx miles

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)

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

Will The ride be affected with coil spacers at all?
