    Hey y'all I have a question,

    Getting a new bumper welded up and it's obviously heavier than the stock plastic one (don't know the weight). My question is do our 5-lugs have any options to counter extra weight (say like an ARB bumper).

    I have a Fat Bob's lift and I'm on 32s.

    i just did it. man the price hurts but imho its worth it. SDHQ keeps saying they have ICON stuff on the shelf. I would say check with them first otherwise it's a 3 week wait minimum.

    Completely different. Feels smooth, transfers more of the road than stock. BUT less jarring then stock. A better ride then stock. Feels tuned. Goes from a weak 5lug to a strong truck.
