    I am considering a low profile winch bumper but I do not plan on, or want to modify my front suspension. I am looking for someone that has done this set up without upgrading their springs. I did this on my taco and and replaced my factory set up with an OME 886 and I feel it may not have been necessary but did notice a handling difference. With the bumper AND winch, I would be adding 100 lbs. I currently have a non-modified FOX Pro suspension.

    You could always just do it and then reevaluate to see if anything else is needed

    With the Pro fox shocks you should be ok, I have A 2019 ORP with victory 4x4 bumper, off road light and warn winch (130-135lbs total) and still have stock shocks. The nose dive is worse, but it still works.

    I do plan to upgrade my suspension since I plan to also add roof rack and sliders. Also plan to add air lift to the rear.

    I have done it on the bilstine pro suspension that had a 3” lift on. It sagged about an 1.5” and nose dive was insane. I have since upgraded to coil-over lift with HD 700lb front coils
