Just wondering if anyone happens to know the weight of the factory steel bumper. Thinking of going with an aluminum bumper to save weight

I just took mine off to install a winch plate and winch. I'd say it was around 40 to 45lb. This isn't exact but my ballpark estimate.

The knock off ones on Ebay that look original are supposedly heavier than the original.

Also the factory steel bumper isn't heavy. One adult can carry two if they can grip and balance. An extra passenger would weigh more. So unless you're taking the weight loss seriously and taking heaps more off, you're not going to notice a difference with less than 2% weight difference against without it.
