Ironhorse 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.

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 am currently looking to purchase/install the full width XHD bumper with storage ends on a stock 2012 Sahara and was wounding how much if any I can expect the front end to drop.

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?

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.

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.

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

cphilip Warn Elite bumper shipping weight is 115 lbs with grill guard tube an without tube - 111 lbs. Must be around 10 pounds of packaging so figure that in
01-02-2013 04:46 AM
OffRoadCam09 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.

When I read the title of you post, first I thought wtf ?
Then I started reading, and learned that this is one very valid question.
The answers i read are fascinating and mind boggling.
The weight differences are unbelievable. Add to this bigger and heavier rims and tires, add to this a winch - and there you have it : a dog !!
Granted, dog which may be rock crawling, but try hitting the highway with this. No wonder lot's of guys are switching to Hemi engines.

Not sure where you got all these numbers. My Warn elite bumper shipping weight was 105 pounds with bull bar. Winch weighs another 60 pounds. Or are these weight with the winch?
11-03-2012 03:46 AM
dongalonga After a bunch of research, I have decided to go with the Expedition One DX with wings and Rubi Skid. That combo will add less than 50lbs to my rig. Then factor in an Engo E9000s winch and we are around +/-100lbs. Not too shabby.
01-22-2012 02:20 PM
ReedFlip Okay. Thanks everyone! I think I am going to get the Body Armor 4x4 Front High Clearance Bumper and the Body Armor 4x4 Rear Base Bumper so that I can mount the Body Armor Roof Rack without having to do any modifications to any other rear bumper.
