i could lift it myself but was quite strenuous, definitely need two people to lift and hold to mount it.
Like me, you grossly overestimate the weight of things haha. My Rigidco bumper has more steel in it (receiver hitch and bulkhead plating) and it weighed in at around 80 lbs with all the frame brackets and bolts included. Go back and look at your UPS shipping number to see how much it actually weighed. If it was 200 lbs, your Jeep would be sagging almost 2 inches in the front.

How did the duplicolor bedliner go on over the self etching primer??

I am on the fence between bed-lining my sliders or just using rustoleum.

I did my rockers in duplicolor bedliner and it was fine, at least where I sanded enough, however I have heard it is not great over self etching primer.

I like it nice work. You guys had to weld the pre-runner bars on yourself? Are these bumpers more difficult to install than their standard bumpers?

The stage three front bumper. Did you lose any height from the weight of the bumper and do you notice it on their while driving? I am curious if it sags at all toward the front.
