    Wanting to put a avid offroad lightbar/bumper on my 08 and was wondering if it would drag my lift down or worse, mess up my front end. Any thoughts? I know it's not hundreds of pounds and all, just took so long to lift it, don't want to drag it back down!

    I think it only ways like 34lbs. I'm running OME 885s. I didn't notice any difference in ride height.

    No worries, I've got a wrap around grille guard hanging over the front of mine, no issues when stock or lifted.
