    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.

    agreed - I called ARB they quote 115lb over the phone. these bumpers are not as heavy as everyone says they are.

    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.
