BIG BUMPERS

I'm getting ready to install a replacement bumper on my truck,it's similar to a ranch hand, fab four, road armor, etc. It ways almost 375lbs.
Can anyone out there give me an idea of how much it's going to pull down the front end?
I realize I'll need to compensate for the drop, but I also want to get rid of the factory rake as well.
I'm figuring I'll need to do a 4' lift on the front end.

I put an iron bull bumper on the front of mine with a 12K winch and it barely dropped the front at all, maybe 1/8th of an inch if that

You have any pics showing how far it sticks out in front of the vehicle?

No I don't have pics because it's not on yet.
I believe it sticks out from the front of the truck 17-18 inches.
I'll try to get some pics on here after I tackle the project this afternoon.

I finally got a chance to put the bumper on.
I still don't know what kind it is, but it does look similar to a T3 out of Texas.
I actually drug it onto a calibrated shipping scale and it weighs 357.26 lbs.
It did not drop the trucks front end by more than a1/8-1/4".
I have to say it's probably the ugliest bumper around.
help how do you post pics on this website?
