I dunno man, the stock bumper with no valence looked pretty damn horrible, especially on the ends where i had to cut it to match the fenders. Its way cleaner now imo.

I will get a 150 rear end if mine ever blows up but im doubting that ill ever have that problem. (maybe murphys law will get me going on that now haha)

well thats understandable. have you flexed the truck out with the deavers installed to see if there was any substantial gain in travel? id like to see how it looks without a cage since all the guys on DR run cages with their deavers.
