Guys/Gals, About to upgrade my suspension on a new D4D Prado. Looking for feedback on whether the "standard" 50mm lift (above factory height) that most products deliver (TJM, ARB etc.)is enough to cope with a steel bullbar, dual batts (possibly a future winch) or is there a need to look for a heavier duty /custom set-up? Have looked at plenty of feedback on the kits but not a lot of info on the loads they are suitable for.

Miker.

I have a Mar 07 D4D Auto.

Had Bilsteins / Lovells / Polys installed, $2,100 all up installed.

Springs were mediums. I only have a Bar on the front, no dual battery & winch.

With all that weight at the front, I'd be going hravy springs.

However, driving around town, unladen, will be delivering a kidney punch to you everytime you go over speed hump, minor road imperfection.

Mine got lifted 50mm. Can go to 65mm.

The suspension upgrade has turned a great vehicle into an outstanding one. Feels a lot more solid and indestrucable.

Thanks Go Fishing. A couple of the chaps I spoke to advised there was options for the rear set-up ie. HD / medium but the front was one size fits all. Will keep hunting. Cheers.

Go Fishing is right
Also, if you went any higher you would also have to look into h/d sway bars etc to off set the cars balance. 50mm should do the job.

Why don't you ask the people who sell or make the suspension......obviously you don't trust them!
