I'm waiting on those sales to buy my bumper. Many other brands are much more expensive out here and when they do those sales its an even sweeter deal. I can't run their fenders out here and I already have side steps so the usual things they throw in I'll just sell on Craigslist to recoup some of the cost.

The src look to be a stubby and rear looks fairly light

I don't want it any lower than it is lol.
With a quality lift you won't experience much sag. I have a Teraflex 4" kit and with their front bumper and a Warn Powerplant winch it only sags a measured 5/16". With cheap springs it may be a different situation.

I've got a 2.5 in coil lift and the SB SRC front and rear bumpers and did not get any sag. Like one other said, with a winch and armor you could get a little possibly.
