I like lifted trucks. I am well aware of the trade offs I have made by raising this truck. Both in the extra stress that I am putting on the drive train and the fact that the truck started with a high center of gravity and I have now made it even higher. I do still plan on getting larger tires on this truck also. Which again will probably raise it up another .5-1.5 inches maybe more depending on what wheels and tires I go with. The new tires will also be wider than the stock tires which should help some, but will never change the fact that my truck will always have a high center of gravity. As for the T-Bone bumper that is the look they make. I didn't have a choice on how wide it was. Take a look at all their bumpers it's the way they design there products. From what I can tell they do it mostly to give you as much protection as possible. All posts I have read about the T-Bone racing bumpers and skit plates say they work great and keep your cars and trucks safe. Even though it would fit I didn't buy the T-Bone version 1 Nero bumper because I personally didn't like the look of it. The Big Rock has a more scale look and I think this version 2 "Big Rock" bumper, that I have, fits the look of this truck much better. They also have an option to install a light bar on it which is cool. Unfortunately I had already gone to the trouble of mounting a 2" light bar to the grill of my custom body before I found out that T-Bone had released this bumper. So now I have to decide if I want to leave the light bar mounted to the body or if I want to move it down onto the bumper and have a couple of holes in the front of my body.
