The Durango bumper and Warn 9500ti winch are now on the Rubi.
But of course I lost about 1/2 to 3/4" of front height. (Yeah, hang 100lbs on the front and what do you expect :roll: )

Anyway, is the simplest solution a spacer up at the top of the spring?
How much trouble is it to get it up there?
Where do you get them?

I currently have no lift of any kind on the vehicle.

i just put in spacers all around. it really wasnt any trouble at all. on the front i jacked up the frame and put a jack stand under it (right behind the control arm on each side of the jeep) removed the wheel, disconnected the top of the shock, unbolted the sprin retainer, used a coil spring compressor loaned out from autozone to compress the spring, pulled out the compressed spring, unbolted the bump stop cup, slid in the spacer, then reversed the everything until it was back together. sounds like a lot, but it isnt at all. the directions will tell you to do A LOT more, but with your stock springs and the small spacer size, you wont have to.

i wish i had put 1 1/4 - 1 1/5 " spacers in the front though - to level out the ride. wanna buy my front 3/4" spacers :)

edit: i got mine from http://www.4wheelerssupply.com for $35 per set (about).
