A DOT pulled me over as i was going to an interview and i figure i was speeding cause my speedo is so far off but then he walked up and said that i looked a little "HIGH" i was like oh okay so he got my info and everything then he measured the front and rear bumpers and for my trucks weight class 4000-7000 pounds the legal height is 28" to the bottom of the bumper and my front and rear bumpers were 32" so he said that i can have the ticket waved if i build new bumpers that are legal height so thats what pushed me to do so.
Thanks again for the positive feedback I will probably pull the bumper late this week or early next week and have it painted. I will get pics of the mounts and explain them when i do that.
