Get the center hoop! You could hang some big hellas off it and light the road up in front of you like a stadium.

I had to almost completely remove the bumper to change out the grill. I believe I had all of the bolts out with the bumper hanging on the very end of the bolts that go in the end of the frame rails.

I searched and am sorry to go off-topic, but what coilovers/springs are you guys running with this bumper?

The bumper looks great on my truck, but with my Donahoe extended coilovers cranked to 2.75" of lift, the truck rides really harsh. What springs could I get to keep the same ride height and mellow out the front end?

Thanks!

Are you running a winch or anything else that adds weight in the front? Like aftermarket skids and sliders?

I have been running SAWs with 650 lb Eibach coils with a winch and Bud Built skids for the last 4 years (~50K miles). That is a lot of extra weight up front. Up until recently, the Eibach coils have handled the extra weight fairly well. But unfortunately, they are beginning to give up as I've been having to crank in more an more pre-load just to maintain height.

I'm thinking my next upgrade will be to a coilover with 700 lb coils, like Kings maybe.

No not running a winch or anything that adds weight besides a supercharger. I've made custom 1/4" aluminum skids that don't add a whole lot of weight either.

Would a 700lb coil allow less preload and the same ride height or do I need to try and find a longer spring too?

That sounds like just what I'm looking for. I'll research prices. 3" ID spring for a 2.5" bodied shock, I'm assuming?

Been researching and wondering if I can get by going with a 16 inch coil spring. Will be 16 inch, 700 lb 3 inch ID Eibach.

Can I squeeze a 16 inch in there?
