bumper ?

I was thinking of buying the Rugged Ridge XHD Front Bumper. Would doing this add any more weight to my front end and make it sag and I guess I can always put 3/4 lift spacers.

The OEM springs will sag after a while.. It will change the spring frequency and spacers will not change that..Go for a lift..

The bumper by itself? No. The factory bumper assembly isnt exactly light, even though its more than 1/2 plastic. My mopar bumper (a full width bumper) didnt weigh much more than the stock one. Maybe 10-15 lbs or so if that. Id take a guess and say the stubby by itself would weigh the same or maybe a touch less than the stock bumper.
