I will repeat the CAT weight after and compare with yours. I suspect that my front end will pick up a few pounds as our rig is a 2019 Transit 350. The stock front bumper is essentially molded plastic.
1998 Ford E250 E50 with the 5.4L. The rear was 100LBS heavier, but that also took 40LBS off the front (as my statics prof always said, "Every couple has its moment and don't push on a rope.").
I was really concerned about the front end picking up weight as I also installed a 12,000LBS Warn winch. I'll be interested in seeing your CAT weights.
I'm having Timberline Vans do a lift and 4x4 conversion. I'm scheduled to take it in mid-May and I scheduled it before Christmas. Everyone is backed up.
