    How do you think that Dirt king front bumper would look with stock fenders and just bilstein shocks set at 2.8? I don't want it to look goofy and i'm not trying to look like i'm a pre runner I just have a dent in my front bumper and besides stock thats the only front bumper that i've seen that I like.

    What matters is how it looks to you but if you don't want to make it look like a pre-runner going with an actual pre-running type bumper, then don't get one cause it'll look like a pre-runner. :)
    Whatever shocks you have are going to be more visible with this type of bumpers.Best of all prerunner bumpers are more or less lightweight at least compared to the Ranch styles ones.

    I don't mind the pre-runner look at all! I wouldn't mind if it looked like a pre runner. Another advantage of that front bumper is the ground clearance. My concern is that I don't have the lift height for that pre - runner style bumper and it'll just look a little off.

    To be honest at the time of those pictures i was on 35's and only like 3 inch lift. So in terms of height it would be pretty similar.

    Well dune season got pushed back until may 1st now but the truck should be ready by then (hopefully). Had the front shocks rebuilt, undercoated the whole truck using por-15, installed 37's, installed some new lights in the bed, replaced my broken front axle, painted bed, installed a wilco tiregate, and finally finishing up on a vinyl wrap job. Not a huge fan of the color yet but I am thinking it will grow on me the farther I get.
