How much weight do you save from chopping the frame and crash bar?

This thread was referring to rear bumper / tire carrier solutions. Are you referring to the crash bar under the front bumper?

No, on the rear. Don't you trim the frame? I thought there was a cross member back there you also remove? Maybe it's not called a crash bar.

That crossmember is where the hitch normally mounts. Some rock crawler bumper options chop it (Poison Spyder BFH?) but from the install instructions I've read for a lot of these rear bumpers most retain the crossmember.

Just to clarify, the Dagger bumper does require removal of the rear frame cross-member. Bumper/carrier combo is listed at 115 lbs without the tire.

I wonder why they told me 140 lbs on the phone? Maybe that's the net weight after you chop off the frame bits.
