how much do the bumper weigh ? mod/removal.

how much weight can be removed by taking off the front and rear bumper and the hydralic pistons ? i was going to do a tuck but the weight reduction would be cool.

Hmmm i've never heard exact numbers but a lot of people switch to the plastic bumpers for that reason. The rear is hard to do though. And call me nuts but I appear to be the only person on the planet that LIKES the way the "diving board" bumpers look. Those puppies are staying on!
