Ranch Bumpers

As I am looking at getting a fifth (around 28-30') I was going to add the ranch bumper on the back of my truck but have realized through all post that less weight is better. Being said I assume that if I don't need it, don't add it. Hard thing to come to gripps with considering I had it powder coated and all. Opinions please.

Put it on if your weight is within the specs.

If I decided to go try a good mountain hill You dont think I will be throwing items out a window to get good speed? I have never seen a mountain but i have read about people needing all they had to do some of the grades.

I was an early Ranch Hand customer. I can't see where it would make a lot of difference, weight wise. This was my 93 F250 Ranch with a Ranch Hand grill guard and rear bumper.
