My setup:

LoD Armor Lite mid-width: 34 lb
Bull bar: 12 lb
Skid plate: 11 lb
Engo E10000S winch: 60 lb
Rigid D2 (pair): 2.5 lb

Total weight: 119.5 lb

Not bad for a complete setup, eh? This LoD Armor Lite bumper truly lives up to its name!

Most of jcr's bumpers are fairly light running around 65lbs. I have the stubby stinger from them with skid plate an its around 75-80lbs all together.

Sweet. I was looking at Rampage or Ace but the weight question is something I never considered.

My winch and D2's are still in shipping, but here's the bumper. I'll post a new picture once the winch goes on next weekend.

Thanks for the pic, looks like a nice setup, and the weight is right in the ball park for what I'm looking for.

Does anyone know, offhand, if the LoD bumper (without stinger) will accept an RCX winch plate?
I'm running the RCX plate and an ENGO 10000 winch on the stock bumper and would like to be able to use the winch plate I have as opposed to buying a second one.

I would recommend calling LoD directly to ask their engineers that specific question.

Does the weight really make that much of a difference on things?

Looking to add a 2" lift as well but that would be down the road as money builds back up. If the bumper drops the front end to much I am gonna rethink or wait for the lift to be installed......any advise or feedback here?

So, Matty87 ~
Now that you've owned a JK for over a year ( since this post , anyway) you feel that you've gotten your own question answered about the weight thing?
lol...
I was browsing thru this thread , saw your post and said to myself, " I'll bet he knows the answer to that question after driving around for a year...."

Although a 2 door from your avatar, I would imagine you've had to xconsider weight savings at LEAST once over the past years time....
yeah, weight makes a massive difference unless you've got the poclets for a Hemi or an LS swap......

I just picked up my Aries aluminum stubby bumper and the weights of the components are:
1 alum. center section 21 lbs
2 alum. stubby end caps 7 lbs
1 center brush bar 2.5 lbs
2 steel tow tusks 11 lbs
1 steel winch plate 11 lbs
Total winch bumper weight 52.5 lbs, plus a new Warn M8000-S synthetic line winch that is 52 lbs.
Sugggestion - if you order an Aries aluminum bumper, order it bare aluminum and have it powder coated locally, so it doesn't arrive chipped on the corners like mine did. That also give you the chance to clean up any rough edges before it gets powder coated or painted.
