avg bumper/winch weight?

So I am trying to plan ahead on some front spacers to fix the rake when I add a bumper and winch in the future. I plan on getting a custom bumer made in the next week or two and then a winch in about a year.

Soo....anyone know what the average bumper and winch weigh? Maybe 100lbs for the bumper and about 80lbs for the winch?

Not sure if I should get a 1/2, 3/4 or 1" spacers...

I think you're weight estimates are close. I lost 3/4" with 175 lbs and used a SkyJacker 3/4" spacer to get it back to where it was.

Yup- my Shrockworks weighs in at 95lbs. My XRC Winch was about 80lbs- then I lost about 20-25lbs by removing the roller fairlead and replacing the steel line with synth line.

I lost 1/4" with the bumper alone, another 1/4" with the winch. I added 3/4" spacers to compensate.

for details and info on our JK's, check out http://n2rock.com
