Aftermarket light weight crash bars front and rear?

Iíve been trying to find where I can buy aluminum crash bars to replace my OEM ones to lose some more weight off the car. Does anyone know where I can buy some? Iíve seen people with them around, but canít seem to find them myself

Thatís a good amount of weight that could be loss. But the question Iím asking is where can I get aftermarket either aluminum or titanium crash bars to replace the OEM for more weight loss.

Hereís the link to the aluminum crash bars I posted in the other thread. Might go the titanium route depending on cost and availability. But these still save weight.

Great and fair price it looks like for the aluminum ones.. I would think the titanium ones would be a bit lighter but possibly double the price. Titanium large stock tubing ain't cheap. Curious the cost on titanium ones before I pull the trigger on the aluminum ones.

I have a rear aftermarket bar I'm not using, but I'm not shipping it. Local sale if someone interested.

The titanium ones from Unobtainum Welding are $895 USD shipped. I ordered some yesterday. Was going to purchase the aluminum ones, but decided to go the Titanium route.

Here are some pics I posted in another thread of the rear titanium crash bar I installed tonight. Going to do the front later this week. Worth the money! Saves a lot of weight and easy to do with one or two people.

I gotta be that guy and ask: what happens in the event of an accident? Honestly curious because I was looking at installing aftermarket seats and read that there could be insurance company issues with the seats in an accident.

Iím not sure how that works, but itís a risk you have to be willing to take if you want to change your seats or etc.
