What's the weight difference between a 4dr and 2dr stock?
Its looking like the curb weight of 2dr base sport is 3,918lb a 4dr base sport 4,211lb (as listed by
motor trend magazine) So benefit of a doubt we'll give it a difference of 400lb = 100lb per spring divide the weight of front bumper and winch 200lb = 100lb on each front spring, now you already matched weight of the 4dr and you still haven't loaded any gear yet. So you are now effectively back to your original height.
It will be interesting to see how it all works out for you.
I DO NOT want more than 2" of suspension lift and will be happy with 1"-1.5" (from where I started). You keep forgetting that the lift was just an added benifit and I don't think you understand how soft 13/55 coil springs are and how low they made the Jeep sit.
Your wrong, 200lbs does not compress the suspension effectively back to the original height. Infact, 230lbs does not even compress the suspension back to stock height. The 18 front coils handle 230lbs much better than the stock 13 coils did. 200lbs for the winch and bumper is on the heavier side of what I'm planning. The winch I may buy only weighs about 67lbs with synthetic rope and the Warn M8000 I allready have only weighs slightly more with cable on it. By your standards, these coils won't work. but in reality I'm not trying to maintain 2" of lift and I don't plan on my winch and bumper combo weighing 200lbs.
I'm not using base model unlimited 4 door coil springs. I'm using coils that would be most likley found on an Unlimited Rubicon or Sahara with a hard top and Max tow package.
A base model 2013 2 door with a soft top and no tow package uses 13/55 coil springs.
A base model 2012 Unlimited 4 door with a soft top and Max tow uses 16/58 coil springs.
I'm using 18/60 coils on a 2 door base model with a soft top.
These coils are a huge improvement compared to stock plain and simple.
They are also a much better upgrade than using spacers or a BB on top of the stock coils. The 18/60 coils are actually worth building off of and fine tuning with a small spacer if needed.
