Hey all, I recently smashed the front bumper up on my 2013 1500 sport shorty, and i was thinking on getting the Iron Bull bumper to replace it. The truck is going to be getting a 4" lift and 35" trail grapplers very shortly, my question i guess would be, will the iron bull bumper be to heavy for a shorty 1500? its almost 200lbs with out lights and winch, just wondering your guys thoughts on that set up?

it'll definitely weigh down on the front. are you 2wd or 4wd?

for example if 4wd you'll want leveling shocks like bilsteins in there to minimize the effects of the weight of the bumper.

I think you should be fine. It'll be a slick lookin truck for sure. esp color matched

i think it can look good, but as mentioned you'll want something extra there to beef up the front, maybe set it it a tad nose high and use the bumper to level it off.
