    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.
