A bumper of that size belongs on a solid axled ranger on 38's....








And how exactly do you plan on getting that new 3" of front lift???

there is no block stacking i removed the stock 2" blocks and replaced with some 3" ones and ordered a 2" add a leaf kit. up front i am doing the worst way possible and ordered keys for it....i plan on doing a SAS when i get the money for it and the 5.0 swap

i'm not dumb enough to do that i have seen trucks get trailered off because the axle decided it didn't like being attached to the truck anymore

Prerunner bumpers make no sense to me.

The only thing I see when I look at that is a good point of leverage in a wreck that makes for some good frame twisting.

I see them every once in a while. Bull bars too. I'm like "wtf man". A 20mph wreck and your truck is totalled.
