    So I read the faq in this section and searched the title of this thread and my answers were not found. I am looking at getting a beefy front bumper. Demello and relentless are on the short list. It seems the extra weight would sag the front end. Bilsteins the answer? Not off roading. I just want a better bumper with a suspension. Thanks for all your time, it is appreciated.

    You will be wanting heavier springs to support the weight of the bumper.

    Bilsteins front and rear, front set to 1'' and rear are 9'' 5125's, OMD springs in the rear, CSJumper LED's inside, hard wired inverter.
    this.

    do you have a first or second gen?
    if you have a 1st gen- OME 883's
    and if you have a 2nd gen- OME 885's
    would, IMO be just about perfect.
