Default Bumper Question

Hello everyone, Codysseus here, I was seeing if any one out here can give me some advice.

Lately, I've been doing a lot of off-roading with my friends and family out near Four Peaks and I've been considering replacing my factory chrome bumpers with a set of Iron Bull powder coated bumpers. I've always had an affection for these bumpers due to the fact that Ironhide in the Transformers films (who was my favorite character) had cosmetically similar Road Armor bumpers mounted on to his GMC Topkick vehicle mode.

The thing is that I've been on and off about getting these bumpers for some time now for various reasons, mainly do to concerns that the weight of these bumpers (they weight about 130 lbs each) will cause my ride height to "sag". Does anyone here own a set of these bumpers and if so, are they worth the buy, and do they affect the suspension?

NOTE: My Ram has a Rancho 4 inch lift with RS5000 shocks, I'm not sure whenever or not this matters.

Good Luck

hey man i got a set of the Iron Bull bumpers, and they dont make your truck sag at all, i got a 6"RCX lift on my truck with s set of 35's. and the front bumper allows alot more clearance, now the rear bumper is actually alot longer than a factory bumper and it actually hits on the tailgate so thats the only bad thing about. but other than that they are worth every penny i paid for em and i would buy them again i would. if ya got any other questions let me know
