Cool Leveling Kit with 140 lb Bumper

Sadly rear ended someone in my RAM sat. morning. BUT, insurance is going to let me install a Ranch Hand Summit Bullnose front bumper in place of stock. Looking at leveling kits, Would 2.5 inch hold the weight of this bumper (140 lb) and privide enough lift to level also. Looking at the Moto Fab 2.5" teflon coated lift spacers

Welcome to da ClubZ NoBullTRX4! I will tell you that before installing my 80lb push bar, my Bilsteins set at 2.1", my wheel well to ground height was at 38.75". Now with 80lbs of weight to the nose, my well height has settled at 37.75".

welcome to the forums. i have an iron cross on mine. with winch... so im at atleast 250lbs. and have a 2" level heres how she sits.
my truck still had a rake before the bumper, now even more so. need about an inch to get back. to level

I would definitely go with the 5100s, they have 5 levels of adjustment from stock to 2.8 lift.
