    I am looking at the Toytech Boss kit, and i am currently running:
    70lb bumper
    Winch with cable 87lbs
    I plan on switching to synthetic line so it will drop to 67lbs.
    With synthetic and bumper i will be around 140lbs, i have done some research and get mixed answers

    I had the same bumper and winch as you on my '14, and Toytec suggested 650 lb on my BOSS, which i used. Seemed okay although I got rid of that 4R 6 months later so i don't have a long term report.

    Yea that is kinda what i was thinking since the pro shocks are 550lb. But i have seen the ride wont be as harsh as the 700lb with this setup, but it will still sag

    I have a Toytec Ultimate with 650# front springs, an SSO Slimline bumper and 10,000# Smittybilt winch with synthetic line. Can't tell that I have any sag other than about 1/4" rake, which it had before the lift. The ride is a little firmer, but not harsh.

    I would guess I could. It is a 3" lift set at about 2 1/2", so there is some room. I like the stock raked look rather than totally level.

    I had the lift installed by the dealer, so I don't know what I can or can't do with it. It got the vehicle up where I wanted it for approach and departure angles and that's all I was looking for.

    I would recommend getting some measurements to reference as a baseline. There tend to be a good amount of misinformation regarding lift vs pre-load, spring rate vs. ride quality... ect. Lots of info/opinions scattered across several forums but untimely knowing where you started is the best bit of information you can have when adjusting ride height.

    I ordered the 700lb, reason being i was told by 3 diffrent people the toytech and my lift shop that with the weight of ~140 to ~160 both will work and to make sure there is no sag and nose dive i was told to go with 700lb even before i asked about the 650lb and the weight they just told me 700lb

    Seems like you ask right questions and spoke with the right people. Be sure to get your baseline measurements, it will come in handy when setting ride height.

    I have my shop do it, they are a toytech dealer so they will set it for a 3” level
