    I got my replacement stock bumper. Not oem it's just a temporary fix till I get a CBI one. But on a positive note it's powder coated black and matches my ARB bumper nicely

    DOM is a harder steel. Put a piece of 1.75” HREW in a manual bender and bend it. Then put 1.75” DOM in there and bend it. DOM takes more effort.

    Not 100 sure but I think HREW isn’t a true .120 like DOM. I would have to measure it when I get home. HREW is sold in gauge thickness

    when it comes to sliders there the cheaper options in terms of armor and the most likely to see some knocks. in my opinion i would get the stronger option even if i think there overkill its a nice investment just in case you add more weight to the rig.

    And that’s why it’s nice to build your truck to your liking. If that’s worth it to you “do it” if it’s not then don’t. You don’t know how many people told me not to link my truck because it’s over kill. Or don’t convert to 4x4..... But here I am.

    Does your other window do the same thing given the same variables?

    If so then it's your window motor failing. Common issue on these trucks. If not then I'd grease your window tracks, guides, and motor drive with some grease.

    Just the driver and now passenger back seat. Passenger front and driver rear works just fine.

    I would take the window regulators out of both driver’s doors and grease the gear drive of the motor, and the points of friction like the joints. Clean the window glass runs too. If it still does the same thing then it sounds like your master switch could he at fault or your motors are failing. I suspect master switch because two on the same side is unsual.

    I think there is one more parameter that should also be considered when troubleshooting stuff like this. That is the tires.

    My 14" 700# coils on Kings were awesome with 15" C-rated tires (much like you are describing now with your icons). Not so much now that I have gone to E-rated tires and a wheel combo that weighs and additional 8.5 lbs more overall.

    I'm of the opinion 700# is overkill unless you have a 100' steel winch line or 1/4 skids, maybe an extra two batteries. Something with substantial extra weight, a steel bumper and typical winch isn't enough in my mind to get to 700# coils, especially in @Dan8906 case, cause the AP bumper is especially light. My icons felt very nice last time out on my e rated KO2s as well

    Tires are something to consider, but properly matched springs and shocks should be able to make that a non issue.

    I went directly from one to the other. I also went from awesone to less that awesome with that change. In my configuration its the tires.

    All I am saying is it is a factor that should be considered in the discussion.

    This is why we're going to get the tools to revalve or own stuff; 'cause I have the same problem.

    I think I said this to you when we last saw each other, but I think it might be time for a revalve in the front, those tires you had could totally imitate softer suspension than you actually have
    Oh man, that's the dream, I hate this being one of the things I cannot do easily at home. Need that nitro rig and a big stockpile of shims
