I added stuff to the list so the original weight savings total was inaccurate. I haven't done this...

They should make this a sticky.

what was your total weight savings?
About 300lbs, not counting any items that add weight, and not counting the piece quoted above. Dont really know what rear floor mats a DC has... maybe the hatch cover or the optional spare tire mat?

You could have just added it together and came up with a sum.
Hmm, time to make a new section in the "How to" list just to keep this handy lol.
