is the install any different w/ just the rear bumper not the tire rack and i was thinking of puttin some blocks on a pallet jack to hold it up. whats the weight of just the rear bumper does anyone know?
No, the install is the same (minus the not needing to mount the tire carrier).
The bumper isn't all that heavy. The nice thing is, the way it's designed, once you get it on the truck, it will stay there, so there isn't a need to hold it up with anything while you bolt it. I would however not lay directly under it until the bolts are in.
