He also has offered remote resorvior shocks at a discounted price if anyone is interested. Anyway, if you want in on this and I do not have your name listed, please let me know so that I can put you on the list to turn over to Nick tomorrow..

We should get a list of spring rates and valving everyone plans to go with and large weight items up front like motor size, winch, bumper etc. so people like me who have no clue can get an idea of what I would need. I am on the brink of my seat about to jump into this deal, just want to make sure I know what i need.

750 is about the average, people with bumpers and crap are getting 800s

the difference is the 2.5 won't fit. The coil is too big

i believe its 2" and 2.5" ID for the coils.

For a Superlift you will need 2.0" X 6.5" Coil-Over (Emulsion or Reservoir) with whatever spring rate you want.

I'm going with Fox Shocks 2.0" X 6.5" (emulsion or remote reservoir, not sure yet) coil-over with Hypercoil 750lb. 12" long 2.5" I.D. coil spring.

Thanks, this is the kind of thing i want.

So what is the general concensus on coils. I have a winch and a bumper that weighs about 40-60lb up front. Should I go with 750 or 800s?

I'm pushing 200 lbs or better, plus a winch in the future.

So I think you are on the limit, if you don't mind a little stiffer I would go with the 800s to be safe, cause the last thing I want to do is drop 500 bucks on something that sags on me a few months in.
