Everyone is saying you need to upgrade your coilovers if you get an aftermarket bumper. Maybe once I add a winch I will feel and notice a difference. But right now,
    With the full hooped 70 pound aluminum pelfreybilt bumper, I don't feel Or notice the extra weight one bit.

    Looking good! I agree with this. While I am not stock and have Icon's there was no sag nor did I feel any difference with the 3 hoop aluminum bumper up front.

    I just installed a VR10000-S two weeks ago and can definitely feel the extra weight now, but still only lost ~.25 inches of height. :thumbsup:

    We here at TW suggest upgrading suspension for Steel Plate bumpers tipping the scale @ around 2X the weight of your aluminum bumper...

    just wanted to clear that up!
