Hi Guys,
I have read a lot here, but this is my first post.
Im looking for some info regarding steel, after market bumpers and I cant find much info.
I have a 2017 Ram 1500 sport. I damaged the front bumper the other day and am thinking about installing a steel bumper instead of a new OEM.
Could anyone tell me if the weight affected their trucks handling or really affected mpg? Is there any other cons to a steel bumper? I live in Canada so I do plan getting it line x'd if go that way.
Also, I have Bush Wacker Pocket style fender flares and wanted to know if anyone has installed a bumper with them. I havent seen any photos with a truck with both and I dont want to have to cut them.
Thanks all.

I have had Fab Four bumpers on all my trucks. No effect on handling or gas mileage. With the Fab Four bumpers you would have to cut your flares to make it fit. There may be other bumpers out there that would fit without cutting your flares so continue looking around.
