    I did a quick search but didn't find any definitive numbers. People say what their manifest says, but that is an estimate in most cases.

    How much does an ARB bumper weigh?

    How much does a Slee Short Bus bumper weigh?

    How much does the stock bumper weigh?

    ARB ~120 pounds
    OE ~60 pounds

    Measured on a bathroom scale.

    From another thread...
    Bumper Weight

    Short Bus - 90lbs
    Non Winch ARB - 130lbs
    Winch ARB - 150lbs

    My Slee is on the way; if no other posts before I get it, I'll weigh it and the stock when I get it.

    Don't have a number for the stock bumper, but comparing it to the 90lb bumper, its a lift it with two fingers type of affair. Probably 30 lbs.

    My shortbus has been delayed due to a production issue... but I just weighed the stock bumper, with mounting bolts and the hangars from the end of the frame rails, right at 35 lbs.

    Yep. The primer is heavy. I had to think twice about using it :flipoff2:

    The metal tech one weighs in at 69lbs with the small stinger and 72lbs with the large stinger. Pretty light considering it has a 3/16" main shell for the winch and the rest is 2" tubing.

    Mine must be heavier than I think, not that much difference in materials between the two. Of course, I did trim off some frame, that's gotta help :hillbilly:
