Will an ARB slow me down?

How much weight does the arb bull bar add to a ZJ? Is there a noticeable difference in acceleration?

It won't slow you down. Well it will becuase your Jeep will weigh 100lbs more but you won't feel it.

Your mpg will drop slightly, or atleast mine did, more wind resistance.

Of course any weight will slow it down but the difference should be negligable, you will however feel a difference in handling. The extra weight out front will cause the front to sag a little.

Unless you compinsate that with a stiffer sping or a small spring spacer.
