Give Toytec a call they’re super helpful. My opinion is that it will be too soft and your front will sag as the ARB is super heavy even without a winch but check with them You may be able to just upgrade the springs for minimum cost

Do you think that any other bumpers would work with that lift?

i would say it will depend on what springs you have ( 550, 600, 700lb etc).

I honestly dont remember what springs i have, i know my rear springs are rated for a lot of weight, but a while back when i ordered the kit, (before i cared for a bumper) it never gave me an option for the front springs. So im not sure

I have the toytec sleeve over coil over and Bilstein 5100’s. I’ve had it for awhile before they came out with their Ultimate lift. But it seems to be the same thing. I also have front and rear ARB bumpers and a Warn winch. No front end sag I notice. If anything the rear sags a little when the cargo is loaded with stuff.

Nice! So is it the toytec/bilstein lift with the 521600 coils?

Yes Toytec Sleeve over coilovers + Bilstein 5100's.

When I first bout the lift in 2008 all I bought where the Toytec sleeve over coilovers for the front and I think their super flex rear springs. Years later I broke one of the OEM shocks and upgraded all the shocks to the Bilstein 5100's.

Oh ok, sorry but just to clarify, your toytec coils are the 600lb coils?

I have no idea how many lbs the coils are. I think when I bought the sleeve overs there was no choice back in 2008 from Toytec. I think the idea was that since it’s adjustable then can adjust the height up if the weight is heavy. My FJ has 95,000 miles now and has been on various off-road trips and it all seems to be holding up fine.

I just ordered an ARB Deluxe Bumper , ARB rear bumper and a Toytec Ultimate 3" lift. when I talked to the sales rep , he recommended the heavier 650 # coil overs and upgrading the rear to HD also. ! question I forgot to ask was if the stock skid plate will work with the new bumper.

Yeah, i added the hd rear coils, but it didnt have another option for the front

Yes I believe the front coils are 600lbs. An aluminium bumper is the best way to add minimal weight to the front but may not offer the protection required. My aluminium one weighs in about the same as the OE parts removed so the additional weight is the winch only

Looks great, which roto-pax mount are you using?
