rampage recovery vs rock hard rh5005 front bumper?!

Hey guys i've narrowed down my bumper search to the rampage recovery bumper and the rock hard rh5005. I was wondering if you guys have any input or preference over one another?!.

Thanks!

Were those other auxiliary lights pretty easy to install on the new bumper?

also does anyone know if the weight of these bumpers will make the front end sag?

The Rampage full width weighs about 130 lbs. for the full width. Not sure if you're looking at that, or the stubby.

Mike and I both have the full width and love it. Install was pretty easy, just need a jack stand or another set of hands to help hold the weight. Came with d rings and using the factory fogs was a plus.

We both installed a lift at the same time as the bumper, so I don't know how much it would sag on a stock jeep.

I have the full width Rampage that is textured black. Looks great in my opinion and install was a breeze. I was able to install it by myself using a floor jack. If you have factory fog lights they will bolt right into the Rampage. Just be sure to put them in before you install the bumper. The instructions tell you to install the bumper first.

I have the factory springs (17/59) on mine but I have the teraflex leveling kit. I noticed a 1/4" drop at the most after putting the bumper on.

I have the gloss black full width Rampage and love it. I have the 18/60 springs and also had around 1/4" drop. I took the spare off and have a slight rake which I like.

Rampage.
Here you go- lots and lots of happy folks with Rampage.

There was a short run of winch plates that were counter-sunk wrong- but Rampage took care of it pretty quickly. Love mine- got hit with no damage, dragged a large boulder with it. I also have the gloss black- contrary to popular opinion its extremely easy to touch up. The powder coat on it has held up better than any other p.c'ed component I have.
