I started a thread a while back regarding the heavy bumper and winch and how awful it rode:

Today I finally got the ARB coils and shocks installed, and all is well again. The front sag is gone and the handling is better than stock. And maybe now it has room for slightly larger tires...? Once again I love driving my Jeep.

I assume you installed the OME coils/shocks in the front only ? is this a fresh install or have you racked miles with the setup ?

Correct, the front only.
Fresh install today.

I am eagerly awaiting how it will look after a thousand or two...

any update on this new front setup since installed!?
Hi there,

This setup is still working well. It took a while to get used to the heavy boulder that is sitting on the front of the Jeep, but after 2 years I don't even think about it anymore. The ride feels natural now - as long as I don't drive a stock Jeep in the meantime.

I also highly recommend the Mopar Big Brake Kit. Great stopping power!

On the rear I put Fox 2.0 and airbags. We frequently tow heavy items and these airbags are essential.

The Jeep has turned out to be a great work vehicle.
