    So I am planing on lifting my 06 KJ and want to eventually add a winch and bumper. Should I be using the OME 790 because of additional weight or will the 927 be fine? Will the 790 spring raise the front more than the 927 until the bumper and winch are installed? Thoughts - thanks.

    WHEN,.........you have an ARB and winch then you can run the 790s, running them with no extra weight up front is going to be a very rough ride
    927s will work for a while with just the ARB, but not winch and ARB

    Thanks for the quick response. How about the height difference without the extra weight? So if winch is coming I guess we have a rough ride for a while? No problem with fit of the 790s?

    I am ordering OME 1.5 lift kit for KJ (790 & 948), rear bump stop 4", and tera flex bump stops. Anything I am missing?

    If you do not have the ARB and winch up front the 790s will basically be like solid springs up front and ride like total crap

    Don't forget, those springs are accounting for the fact that the CRD engine itself weighs 200lbs MORE than the 3.7l.
