Is there an aftermarket bumper that is a little on the lighter side so it won't sag out the suspension?

The tin foil stock front bumper on my '95.5 Tacoma was all of about 10lbs. The one I have on there now by Bentup is made of flat steel and is closer to 50-60lbs. I installed Donahoes to deal with the extra weight. My aftermarket rear bumper is also a Bentup model and is only 20lbs heavier then stock.

a $1600 aluminum TJM is about it...but that still weighs a whole lot more than the OE ;) (assuming they still make them.)

the bottom line is if you want an aftermarket bumper you will have to upgrade your front suspension at the same time.
