    Getting steel means you just need to get the Icons so you can adjust the ride height you want to the weight...

    not sure if this is really the best thread for this.. pretty new to forums. 20% off, if i could only get 1 relentless fab item to start out with what to choose; sliders or front bumper?

    If you're on a stock suspension, I'd go with sliders.

    Reasoning is two-fold:

    1. Your truck won't handle the weight of the front bumper well and you'll notice it in the driveability.

    2. If you off road and you're on a stock suspension, you'll appreciate the sliders. :eek:

    yea sliders for sure.

    even if you have coils to support a bumper. Sliders will be way more useful offroad.

    ^ my thoughts exactly.. so i have read on here that suspension upgrade is pretty necessary along with the bumper. i would plan to do a suspension lift and upgrade suspension at the same time if i did the bumper. im sure people on here have done this, looking for info. can anybody point me to some good info on it?

    If you're going to (and able to) drop that much coin at once... why not do both a bumper and sliders?
