(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.

We completely understand --

We had rushed to install this the day before FJ Summit started

Working with staff today to try and get weight estimates for you guys. It's slightly less than 4Runner dual swing which weighs in at approximately 220lbs to give you a rough indicator.

I'm glad there's still some good R&D out there for the FJs. It seems like our numbers are dwindling at Summit.

Thanks for keeping the FJ alive, guys!
