New ARB Rear Bumper/Tire Carrier

The time has come to ditch my Mopar Rock Crawler Rear bumper and move on to something bigger and better. Looking for pics of anyone running the new style ARB Rear Bumper or The bumper with tire carrier. Ive only found 2 or 3 pics of it installed on someone's rig and would like to see more.

Looks nice - I am in the market as well and I am leaning towards the Extreme Terrain Barricade bumper/tire carrier, which I had on my last LJ, and I am also considering the Warn combo. The Barricade is well priced and I had no problems with it, but I am still shopping.
What does ARB want for this setup?

$1600 For the bumper and tire carrier.

$750ish for just the bumper.

Probably worth every penny quality and value wise.

I actually use to have the old one and it was built like a tank. Never had any issues with it aside from its 200lb weight.

What about Poison Spyders rear bumper/swingout tire carrier? Its a solid bumper, just pricey and heavy but still cheaper than the ARB. It also might have a better departure angle than the ARB which is always nice.

I just don't care for Poison Spyder - especially when they dictate advertising in every part via laser cutting. Same goes for any other aftermarket manufacturer that does the same. ARB uses a sticker, that I can remove.

Plus, ARBs is already powdercoated.

I hear you, I have a couple of their products (fenders and rockers) but could do without the spyder icon. With the salt air around here its the first place things start to rust around because of the sharp edges. ARB makes solid gear, look forward to checking it out when you get it.

It's a straight up simple bumper. I think the addition of a High lift jack would be awesome. The new ones come powder coated like someone mentioned earlier. Do post pictures after the installation. Get a floor jack to lift & line up. I don't mind having their sticker on it as I think it's an awesome product. I do have a problem when other manufacturers stamp their logo on everything.

Once my bank account recovers from the cost of the bumper, im going to add the tire carrier section (which costs just as much ). I got a highlift mounted to my roll bar just forward of the tail gate.
