If I'm not mistaken, they're closer to 150 lbs. The look-alike bumper manufactured by TJM (ARB's competitor) weighs 130 for reference.

My ARB weighed 120 pounds including all the mounting hardware. That is an actual scale measurement.

Every time the subject of ARB bumpers comes up, the weight estimates range from 150 to 975 pounds
