    Anyone done this replacement yet? I hear its lighter than the stock bumpers and it seems like all over mine is plastic everywhere. I really want to do this but not sure of the price and I'm afraid of the extra weight (if there is any) wearing out the tires on the front end. That happened to me on one of my F250's so I'm a little gun shy trying it again.

    Thanks!!

    Any extra weight on the rear is a good thing, especially if you live where you get a lot of snow. More rear weight= more traction, less stress on the front.

    Never heard of them. If it's weight you're worried about, just update the shocks to support it.

    Edit: for some reason, I thought this was related to a front bumper, not the rear.
    I agree with @matluth

    Just remember, IMO, if you add weight to the rear, don't use shackles or air bags to regain height. All that does is put added stress on your OEM springs. Like Sean said> shocks and/or AAL or full monty with new springs and shocks. Pretty sure the Fab 4 is heavier not lighter than OEM. At least it looks heavier. The 2nd gen bumper is all metal. I guess the 3rd gen bumper is probably lighter with all the plastic bs than the Fab 4. Guessing only.

    Yea, I actually was talking about the front. I'm less worried about the rear, but yes I'd replace them both at the same time.
