    Thinking of getting an aluminum F-bumper, w/hoops! Est the weight to be around 85 - 90 lb! (2012 Access, 4x4, all-stock so far)

    1. Do you think I'll notice any drop in F-end after install?
    2. I believe, when the wothless stock tires die, I'll replace with GY DuraTrac's at the stock size of "245" to limit loss of mpg
    3. If the answer to Item #1 is yes, what's the least $$ of re-capturing the F-end drop?

    :help:

    The weight seems waaaaay too high for an aluminum bumper.
    1. Yes heavy bumper puts more weight on the front end.
    2. Sure :O
    3.stronger springs and struts which vary in price.
