Front sag with just winch

Hi all I have a 13 unlimited with 3"lift how much sag can I expect with just installing a winch with synthetic line on the stock bumper.

I am hoping for 1.75 inch drop when I install mine in a month or two. I am at 4.75 inches lift with stock bumper, way beyond the three I thought I was getting. I am not hoping much though, I'm 240 and when I sit on the front I can only measure 1/4 inch drop. Using Teraflex springs

A synthetic line winch is about 75 lbs. Find 75 lbs and put it on your front bumper and check the sag.

I lost about 1/2" in the front with the winch & synthetic line added. Still came out way more than 2.5" of lift from RK2.5 Max Travel.

Just have someone stand on the front bumper and take measurements. I didn't lose anything noticeable with the jcr stubby and winch. Maybe a 1/4 inch but I didn't measure and I still sit front high with my rk 2.5
