New winch and bumper installed, now the front sags
I knew before this that this would happen, but didn't realize it would do it this much. Man, you can really feel the weight in the front end now. haha. Anyways, the front seems to have come down about an inch. Is there anything I can do to offset this?
My OME lift kit came with a front end spacer for just this issue...I think it was 1/2 inch and leveled things out.

I do not consider myself a smartass. I point out the obvious, search for the truth, and speak fluent sarcasm. I am, by experience, an accomplished curmudgeon.
Make mine a Jeep!
When I installed my winch and f/bumper the front rake went down quite a bit. I installed a ¾” spacer which helped somewhat, but should have put a 1-3/4 inch spacer instead. Never did though because I was going to lift it. Drove like that for almost a year.
Yup, my Jeep was looking lowered when I did all of that with no lift. I did a teraflex 2.5 inch lift with shocks and springs and it leveled right out. Just remember, if you get it more level than stock the hood is going to start to flutter :-)
