This post just officially lit my *** on fire. I am like three beers in, but Canadian beer is like moonshine so whatever.

Its exactly why I joined RF and what I hope to get out of it.

Yes, unfortunately. If it wasn't I would have gone with the 5.5" suspension lift instead of the 3".

The bumper weighs almost twice as much as the stock bumper.

I always wished it was. I drive it like it is. Actually I think I've learned to drive it a little better/smarter because I am 2wd and most of the time I wheel alone.
