Ok, so here are my thoughts....

Front:
ARB
12k winch

Center:
Outback Roof Rack

Rear:
drawer setup inside
dual swing rear tire/cooler swing out
35' spare tire
subtank OEM

So do I go Slee 4' or OME Heavy plus Spacer. Not sure what most prefer in this setup...

need to make sure you properly address Castor with that large a lift.

After installing a lift some people troubleshoot vibrations from the drivelines that usually ends up being U joints. If this is the case use Toyota U joints, have it balanced and take the opportunity to retube at least the rear shaft.

Yup, J's front and rear with OME L shocks. Have heard great things about Christos Springs.

I was running SLee 4" and OME J springs rear. It sat really close to level with the rear being slightly higher. This was with ARB front (no winch) TJM rear w/35" spare, and 3rd row seats.

You WILL have to deal with Caster on a 4" lift. I really liked this combo and the way it sit. You may want to go with the 4" all the way if you are really going to load that rear down...

I liked my J's f&r with 2 trim packers front and one rear but the rear was too soggy when loaded or towing. I went with Slee's 4" mediums because of the great ride hight and the rear load rating. I love the fronts but the rears are a little short coiled for my liking and the clank that comes from unseating when full drooped is annoying. If the rear Slee's were longer free length with thinner wire diameter I think they would be perfect! Other than the clank they have been an excellent spring! I might swap the rear to the OME comps for this very reason. The spring rate of the comps is between the rear J's and Christos 4" medium.

I forgot about the OME comps. Aren't they 3,4,5" comps? Yeah, the rear J's got a bit squishy when loaded. Maybe the 4" slee front , 4" comp is a good setup?
