Absolutely love my ARB bumper.
No shakes, no rattles,
slam shut latch,
hinge bolt goes through the bumper twice, above and below the arm, which I think goes a long way towards making it solid, and I've yet to see another bumper do that.
There's also an adjustable pre-load on the bottom of the hinge bolt, so you can dial out any sag in the arm so it opens and closes effortlessly.
Factory third brake light mounts right up.
Also a gas shock to assist / dampen opening it.
Spring lock mechanism to hold it in the open position when off-camber.
Spring lock mechanism to prevent it from opening too far if there's a car next to you. Normally it would open to about 110 degrees or so but you can lock it out at 90 degrees if needed.
Frame tie ins.
Full wrap-around protection on the corners.
Optional HiLift attachment - which I don't have as trolley jacks bolted to a piece of wood work better for us in the desert.
Adjustable Backspacing on the tire mount so you can make sure it sits tight on the swing-arm.
Other than holding fuel cans, it literally ticks every box.
Also - even though it looks huge, the lower edge of it is pretty much level with the bottom of the chassis. The top of the bumper is just below the tailgate opening, so it's overlapping a lot of the tub. If you have a body lift, this bumper will do a great job of hiding it too. Point being, at first impression you might think it kills your departure angle. It doesn't. Yes there are higher clearance options if that's your goal - but this one is not bad at all.
Weight? Well - all those features are going to add weight so yeah... it isn't light. But I actually like having the extra weight in the back - keeps the Jeep more balanced for my terrain.
Price? Well... lets just say you get what you pay for
Only thing I've done differently is I took one of the rubber bumpers off the tailgate door and mounted it on the back of the tire carrier, so the door rests against it when it's open.
And when I say no shakes... it definitely gets tested
It's amazing what a difference it made getting it off the door and on to the bumper. The Jeep feels noticeably more solid.
I will say OR-FAB's body mounted carrier is also very solid. You need to take care when installing it to make sure the swing arm aligns to the clamp plate when you close it otherwise you'll always have to lift it to close it... and the latch isn't as nice to use... but it definitely passes the solid test.
