Better question: What size tire are you trying to run? That dictates how much clearance you need. Raise the truck the minimum amount possible.

Thick? That's tubing, it's strength comes from its shape, not thickness. Going from N"Fab"s track record, that bumper is probably made of .090, which is simply too thin for a bumper. Also it only...

The reason it is configured this way is that most people cannot control a vehicle in a rear skid. Also approx 70% of your braking is in the front.

If you are running buckets with harnesses you need a cage, and nothing less. Get in a good enough of a wreck, and you will be trapped in place and be maimed/decapitated/crushed/etc.

Unless this truck also has long travel suspension, you aren't going to go anywhere near fast enough to damage those lights.
