I need ya'lls opinion. You cant see it in the pic, but Im running a full width bumper in the rear(LOD) as well. I love the armored look and the protection in brings. I dont mind at all scraping the bumpers up, I kind of use them as feelers/skids. What I dont like is the weight. I have considered ditching the front and rear bumper and put a front stubby up front and just bolt in shackles on the frame rails in the rear. This would save me close to 200lbs. Im also considering revoing the rear seat for trips(100lbs). The axles are stout, Im running RCVs up front, and with the 4:1 tranny and 5.13 gear I spend more time with my foot on the brake and not the gas so Im not too worried about weight induced breakage. Im just looking for opinions.

Some states require a rear bumper of some kind so you might want to check your laws before you commit to taking off the rear. Other then that if you get a front stubby I am guessing your thinking aluminum to save that much weight? How much does your current one weigh?
