I haven't seen theirs, the one I have is great for the price, I'm assuming empires is similar.

Yeah they're all basically the same including metallurgy from what I can tell. Looks like 50 beans less or so is the difference. Would cover the Alignment costs or a few 8 packs of Guinness for the install. I'm not too concerned just didn't know what the consensus for empire is or was. Just glad I can keep the g2 ends with more options than I thought

It's Sunday. Go install your Psc pump and get your hick ass off the computer chair :P

Damn, I like that, I was gonna get a ranch hand to match my fab fours since they oddly enough don't make a matching rear one, but that looks stout and clean.

Yeah I like it. It was the cleanest one I could find. Good price too. Bigger shackle mounts than most of what I saw for other options. The extra 150lbs has tamed the rear end some as an added perk when unloaded. I'm surprised how much different the truck looks from the back now, just gotta spray the fugly toolbox now hah. Their side steps look good too. Gotta figure out the front at some point to work with plow mounts but no one will send me one for mock and fab up hah. Seems like all the front ones are logo heavy as well which I'm not a fan of
