winch and bumper???

Im thinking of putting a Heavy duty winch bumper (BUCKSTOP Truckware - Heavy-Duty Winch Bumpers for Ford Trucks: F250, F350, F450, F550, Excursion) and a mile marker winch for 700, on a F250 PSD regular cab truck both the winch and bumper have a combined weight of about 260lbs would this affect the ride height? Also i would like to put about a 4 inch lift on a the truck, which company that sells lift should i consider getting ( im looking for a pretty affordable one)? Thanks

A xouple of guys here have Ranchhand bumpers, they are extreme heavy duty steel winch bumpers and can stand up to a lot. You should talk a look at those.

I sell the Buckstop bumpers at work... AWESOME PIECE!!!
I would also recomend a T-Max winch .... I sell them also and have had no problems....and they are affordable.... I even have some Re-man t-maxes that are alot cheaper...

as for your lift are you 2wd or 4wd and what year truck do you have... as for the bumper with winch i dont think it will be much of a problem... im running an aftermarket bumper and a 12k mile marker winch and it didnt even drop 1/2 inch.. i also have an 8" lift on my truck... let me know if you have any questions

I have an F 350 with a ranch hand on the front I have hit five large deer since May with no damage to the bumper or it's powder coating. It will take out a driving light when I make contact but thats it. I have a warn fast pull winch on it that works well. A leveling kit helps, I will probably go through an extra set of ball joints over the life of the truck I figure with the extra weight.
I have first hand knowledge that hitting a deer at 70 MPH and being able to drive away with no damage in a remote area is a good piece of mind.... but that's just me.
My Cummins has a Ranch hand that is line x'd, I like it powder coated better.

Rough Country I think offers the best price on superduty lifts without selling crappy components.
