this is after the lift.
Is there an optical illusion or is that rear bumper sagging on the left side?

you had me worried there for a moment.

just checked the bumper everything looks good. Even checked the measurements all is good. I think it all has to do with the camera angle.

Has anyone gotten a front bumper that also fits the factory fog lights? I have the LED ones so would like to keep them.

I did, but they are recessed and the beam pattern sucks.

I started with a Rugged Ridge HD full width front bumper but the bolts snapped off at 40 ft-lbs and the install called for 60. They couldn’t be replaced so I sent it back for a refund.

I then installed Rival front and rear bumpers. Both full width and aluminum. I like them a lot and they are pretty solid. The front is probably one of the better deals out since it includes the over rider and skid plate, which cost extra with some companies. I did have to buy after market fog lights those were 100 bucks for Quadratec brand. Much brighter than the factory LED fog lights.

Anyone consideration for having an integrated winch mount vs a top mount? I wonder if blocking the grill too much is bad? Does the diesel need more airflow?

Those are some complex shapes for an aluminum bumper. Looks good! Do they have a recessed winch option?
