I don't think there is any metal in that rear bumper. The front has a metal bar in it. It must be clasified as a truck which has no safety requiremet for the rear.
New bumpers are just under 100 pounds front and over 100 pounds rear.
Interesting about the classified as truck comment, I saw a pic of a MW3 unlimited at a salvage yard and it was hit low in the right rear AEV bumper and it bent the frame hard at the wheel well. Obviously, it was totaled. I wonder how it would have fared with the regular oem bumper? The aev bumper looked fine just the frame gave.
