I'd say put the front ARB bumper on now and wait until you get a lift and tires before you install the rear bumper.

That seems like the rational decision. Only thing I'm worried about is uneven sag meanwhile, maybe I could just upgrade to hd front springs for now.

How well do you guys think c4x4 is doing business wise? knowing my luck when I'm ready to order rear brackets they're gunna go outta business I just got an email from them today and they want $97 shipped for te rear brackets

lol I've come to the conclusion that I scored a deal already with the bumpers that I'm not gunna be a scrooge about the brackets. I think a local shop could probably improvise for the rear bumper but I think the original ones will have a better fit and everything will go together better. For the front I dont think anybody could replicate the ARB brackets but I'll see what a shop says... I dont know of any custom fab shops around here so we'll see... I think it would be cheap if they had exact schematics/dimensions but theyre going to have to use the ARB bumper as a model and make custom mounts :/

Thanks guys! I'm really tempted to push my 2" bubble now lol but new coils will quickly turn into new coils new shocks new endlinks and adjustable tr and lcas lol it gets out of control pretty quickly. It'll happen in a couple paychecks lol. The bumpers are sweet though really happy to have the ARB it's built top notch quality

Somewhere I think I said I'm sparing no expense... just bought the ARB official mounting kit. Going to start cleaning up the bumpers tomorrow and order the C4x4 fab brackets soon

$250 shipped for the complete ARB installation kit (brackets hardware winch cover and bottom air deflector) and $97 shipped for the C4x4 brackets and installation bolts.

I think i got a good deal for the arb kit cus I was quoted arb direct for $297 + shipping and they were a month out of production so it would take a while

So I was looking at it like this for a while:

and I had the tools handy so I took the grill off to clean the radiator.... and so I did.... and then I took the bumper off and put the grille back on....

And by now I couldnt resist.... my ARB is like halfway through the prepwork and the brackets arent here yet but I had to hold it up and see how it looked



I'm excited....
