    Have Kennesaw Mtn Wincher with 9000 lb mile marker, four aux lights and dual batteries. Will the stock springs have good road manners or should I beef them up or replace?

    With any added weight, I'd be more worried about the bearings than the springs.

    I have a KMA wincher and 12,000 lb milemarker, lights, and dual batteries and my springs are the last thing I was worried about. It doesn't seem to make that big of a difference.

    Well you're going to want to lift it soon enough, you can fix that problem then.
