    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.

    Is it also coming off a 2nd gen Taco?
    If so, the mounting and fit should work.
    If a different truck, there may be some fitment issues.

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