    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.

    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.
