Default Rifle or lift?
Alright outdoor RF members. I have a dilemma. Both will happen eventually. It is a question of which one will be first. Help me decide which one to get.

Either

Would be sweet to own. I am very familiar with firearms. I grew up around guns with my dad, I am prior service Army and work in Law enforcement. Notice the price. Not bad. I want something to bring to the range and I want a deer. Badly. (I already have a scope btw)

---or---


I feel that with my front bumper, I need a better look for my truck. I think this Leveling kit with body lift will improve the look. I actually posted it in the "lifted" section to get thoughts and opinions on it.
Pros: I will get much more use from it than the rifle.
Cons: I Plan on doing a 6" in like 4-5 years.


Thanks outdoors enthusiasts. Tell me which one.

You plan on keeping those tires with any type of lift? If so get the rifle.

You'll need the lift to go hunting.

First thought was rifle until I saw it was a Remington. If those are your only two choices, go with the lift.

Lol. The Rem 700 is not the best rifle out there. But, it has great history and is very proven. I feel the price/ performance ratio out of the box is great.

It's an Iron Bull bumper. I actually have a thread on it on this forum.

I plan on keeping the tires for now. I have 31,000 on them. I plan on upgrading around 40k to 35".

Dang dude that's a hard choice. I'm a gun guy. So if say buy the rifle. But your truck is aching for a lift with that bumper on it.
