is it steel or aluminum? I have the CHE aluminum without a hook attachment and it saved only 9 lbs believe it or not. If the FRPP part is steel then it won't be more than 6.
The HSS bumper bar that is stock is really lighter than it looks.

It is steel and I believe it saves around 6 lbs over the stock part and its almost as far forward as possible so removing this weight is very beneficial. We didn't feel that aluminum was strong enough to support the tow hook. Don't forget that you also save the weight of the splitter bracket by incorporating the stanchion mounts into the bumper.

Stop it! I already like the look of the 13 better.

Very interested in seeing this, especially if it works with the 2012 302S splitter.
 
Here's a photo of the bumper bar Mark is referring to.

Is this the rear bar and if so will it be available?
