    Question for you .. this bumper comes with a winch option. Is this bumper with a winch option weigh more or the same bumper without a winch option? I hope this question makes sense.

    Once would expect additional reinforcement built into the bumper with the winch options and thus weigh more when compared to a non winch bumper.

    The winch option is a seperate plate that is added on to the bumper. When I go and get the bumper weighed I will also get the winch plate weight as well. The plate itself is not very big so it should not weight that much.

    I think you really answered your own question. I believe it will weigh more optioned for a winch. I think the number is negligible. Compare any of the other high end bumpers and they weigh considerable more. I mean 30-50 pounds more. The iron bull is pushing 200#s with a grill guard. You want protection you have to be willing to either deal with the weight or pay HUGE money for a billet composite custom.

    Front Bumper = 60lbs
    Skid = 18lbs
    Winch mount = 34lbs
    so front bumper with skid plate, and winch mount is 112lbs total.
    and just incase
    Rear Bumper = 51lbs

    Yes it increase the entry angle by 2" and moves the front tow hooks to our upper D-Rings

    So just 78 pounds without winch. That's decent.

    Can you keep the tow hooks in the factory location or do they have to move?

    No you can not run the factory tow hook, our bumper blocks the area where the fatory tow hooks are located.
