    How much does the steel version weigh? Also does it improve approach angle?

    I think they told me the steel one was 50 lbs. I am sure it does help with the approach angle. My truck has the wsi 3 over hd springs and progressive coils on mid perch which raised the truck 3 inches in the front. I caved the stock skid plate in and have not yet even touched this one.

    beadblaster, hows the fit of your bumper? I have the sam thing and mine is somewhat laid back. I also bought the rear aluminum bumper and it looks warped from day one.

    Mine also was laid back slightly. I went and added a couple of body fender shims between the bumper and frame on the top bolt and this lined it up perfectly. I am going to order the back bumper but have a concern if they are warped. I may get a steel back bumper because I have the hd wsi springs on the truck.

    i hit a gate with this bumper, it may actually be weaker than the stock one... it just bent back. i always thought aluminum would break before it would bend but i was wrong

    I can send you pics of mine. Most people dont see the slight warp, but it bugs me. If you are interested i can sell it to you.
