Winch and Bumper Suspension Question
I recently purchased a Warn Stubby bumper and winch. Will I be able to mount these and run them with my stock suspension on my 2013 Rubicon or will the weight (about 170lbs combined) be too much for the front suspension to handle until I lift it in a few months? Thanks in advance

It will sag your front suspension about 1 inch. Your suspension will be fine just lower in front than it already is. I had a teraflex leveling kit installed when I added a warn bumper and winch and lost about 1 inch my front coils were 14s.
I changed them to 18 and it level again. It will depend on what coils spring you have up front. Many guys assume the rubicon has a bigger number spring up front but many don't so you need to look to be sure.

I know that some of said there was some sag, but I have a 10 Rubi 2dr with a Mopar off road bumper and Warn winch and I have NO sag. So, there's nothing else I can add.
