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?

get a photobucket account at photobucket.com and then copy the direct link of the pic and hit the picture icon on the quick reply box at the bottom of this thread and delete the http/// stuff in it and paste the direct link in the box and hit ok and post quick reply
