Hi Guys

How much will an smittybuilt XRC-8 winch and the Smittybuilt jk winch plate lower my front end? Am I looking at a 1/2" or greater drop? Found a great price on the winch and plate, but wanted to go bigger on my lift first! I have a 1.75" spacer lift which is great for what i have now, but if I add the winch and I feel my nose is going to drop! The jeep was fairly level with the spacer lift, then I added a modified Mopar steel skid plate and that lowered my front end by 1/4" to 1/2" now if I add the winch am I going to need to re-spring the front end? Maybe replace the front spacers and springs with 2" lift coils, leaving the spacers on te rear?

XRC8 with wire is right at 90lbs. I have syn cable now and it is 67lbs. I got zero droop from the winch but I am running TF coils. I'd imagine 1/4 to 1/2 with oem coils. I would at a 3/4 spacer. I have a set of TF 1" spacers for sale

Same for me. I didn't get any height loss but I have a ProComp lift.
