Thank you. I hooked up the bigger lights to the fog lights in the truck and ran a separate switch for the smaller ones!

Nice bumper. IMO these are a necessity. I hit a deer with less than 5k on my duramax 2500. Did over $10k in damage. Took out the cooler, rad and front end so bad I had to have it towed cause I couldn't even turn the wheels. I put this on while it was being repaired. It's a Thunderstruck bumper. I had my buddy at the body shop sand and fill all the welds and paint it to match. I grabbed a 23" led light bar on Black Friday. Haven't decided how to mount it yet.

I like that bumper!! Out of curiosity, how much heavier is it over the OEM, and is there any notable difference in ride/steering?

I'm not sure how much heavier it is than the factory one but the total weight is about 200#. I don't notice any difference in the steering at all but my truck also has the snowplow package. That means I have the heavy duty front springs to be able to support a snow plow.

OK. I would think that "standard" front suspension like mine would need a little help with that weight.

Mine as well is about 200 lbs. the stock one has to weigh something. So adding 150+- lbs shouldn't be much of an issue. Especially on a full size pickup. Mine also has the plow package and I've made no adjustments to the torsion keys ( that's all the package really is, a different torsion key like an aftermarket leveling key). From my understanding stock setting is the same either way just more upward adjustment available for the plow and frame which is considerably more than 200lbs
