Re: Expedition One Dual Swing Rear Bumper has finally arrived!
(snip) Once we begin initial production, we should have more info for things like weight. Stay tuned!..
Esthetically very pleasing.
But I'm confused on the inability to provide an approximate weight. Since at least one prototype was designed and built, is it possible that at some point it was not weighed?
Or does the prototype shown on the E1 website not reflect the "final" production-ready design, and therefore the actual weight of the production version is not known? I would assume that the design was developed via CAD, and if the materials and thicknesses are known, your CAD tool can provide a very accurate estimate of material weight, perhaps minus the several pounds of weld bead.
Just curious, as I'm carefully comparing the weight of aluminum vs steel bumper options, and would like to know the approximate weight of this new contender.
