With heavy/more then stock (26?) how much of lift do you go down. Does spacers hold up the same as springs (not heavy duty/regular).

I am going to get arb bumper, have read its about 95/even if 125 how much does this do to front height. 1/4inch or 1inch.

When you get a 3inch springs/front which nets you 4 because you go down 1inch with bumper weight/winch or not, do you still need components of a lift kit to make sure your good, since your above 3inch or are you still ok being at not higher then 3inch lift because you only net 3 being due to bumper weight.

This is my setup...
OE fenders/PS aluminum are about the same so i'm not including them.

OE Front w/ tow hooks 36.4lbs
OE Rear 15 lbs
OE tire carrier 20lbs
OE Willys wheels/tires 365lbs (25 wheels, 48 tires x5)
436.4lbs

PS Brawler Lite 64lbs
Brawler Rear 57lbs
Maximus Tire Carrier 45lbs
Maximus add ons 10lbs
Hi Lift Jack 30lbs
rotopax 21lbs w/ gas
XHD wheels w/ KO2's 492.5lbs (32 wheels, 66.5 tires x5)
XHD wheel protectors 30lbs (6 each)
WKO Sliders 116
Warn Zeon 10 Synthetic 75
931.5

865.5 - 436.4 = 504.1 additional weight not including all the gear I have that's kept in the jeep on a daily basis.

I run RK 2.5 triple rates and i'm sure if it even went down. I haven't measured before/after but they do hold weight pretty good based on my observation.

I only have spacers now (and getting springs/but not now) and didn't want the front to sag (wouldn't get back bumper now/money) before I figure out what springs I want.

I ripped off the stock bumper because I looks fake, so I have been driving around with the inside bumper/a rhino looking bumper. I coiuld get the arb front bumper (no bull/winch now) before I figure the spring height I want but didn't want to sag/create a rake (after getting it level/by having 2.5 in front and .5 spacers in back).

So based on what your saying 500 doesn't make much of a diff. in terms of overall height. I just need to see what it does to front alone and then back.

Prob will get bumpers before springs so I know what they do to the height wise. Then the last things I will get will be springs and shocks.

it is easy to check just find someone who weighs 100lbs and have them sit on the bumper and you will see how much you loose.

@dawhitesJKU remember you can only the difference in tire weight for the spare only as the other tires/wheels have no effect on sprung weight. so you are closer to 400lbs over total.
