Dayum that looks sick! Awesome
Any chance of seeing some night shots of that light setup?
(bad ass truck btw)
Dont you hate it when your first post makes you look like a twunt?
I would still love to see pics of your setup @night
I'll get some nightshots tonight or tomorrow night and post 'em up.
Sweet, cant wait to see them!
By the way, your music is hilarious!!
you did some measurements on the top perch BEFORE you added your bumper to the front, I'm curious how the measurements are now that the new bumper has been added. The weight, extended out would be heavier than the actual weight of the bumper itself.
I'm gonna do all this crap at the same time, and the weight of the bumper (I know yours is supposed to be heavier than the others), could contribute to the leveling.
The only measurements I ever took are located in this thread here:
But I will take those same measurements again now that the bumper is on so we can see if anything has changed much. FWIW, Ryan @ ADD estimated that my new front setup added about a total of 50 lbs over the stock setup. (but I see what you're saying about extended weight vs actual weight.... Makes sense)
only way to know that for sure is to put em both on the scale... from what I hear vendors say about shipping weight, these bumpers are roughly 180 pounds, that would put the OEM lower bumper at 130?
nah... the whole rear bumper wouldn't weight that much.... but as soon as this is all hashed out for sure, it will make these decisions easier to make for everyone.
I added a front bumper of 200lbs on my F250 and it dropped the front 1/2 inches.... and this raptor will scrape the garage floor if you step on the front bumper, lol...
so I'm anxious for the results, front and rear measurements on level ground with the new bumper.... I wonder if it would be different on a Crew?
That is one seriously badass setup BO. Looks like I need to deploy again for some mod money for the Raptor.
and to think I told the wife the Raptor wouldn't be getting modded like the GT500 has
Thanks man! The level of gawking the Raptor already received cruising the streets has now been multiplied by 5. I've seen grown men standing on the sidewalk with their jaw hangin low pointing at my whip like little kids as I pass by. Its funny cause I also see people staring at the lights like "what ARE those things?"
