It would mostly be a guess. It will also depend on the quality of the springs. You can add a small spring spacer to get back some of the lost height.

It all depends on what springs and how much the bumper and winch weigh. No one can guesstimate for you until we know the weights of the accessories.

Donít forget to do a before measurement so you will know how much the Jeep settles. Like said though, quality of springs play a big part in what will be the final height.
