ARB Bull Bar... :drool:

I just came across this bumper!

Anyone here have one of these, or the really pricy back bumper too??

What do you think?

I love it...one of my favorite mods. Fairly tough too. While at Paragon last year I nailed a tree about 4-5" wide and did nothing to the bumper.

I personally don't care for the ARB bumper on a Wrangler. It seems a little out of place - looks better on a larger vehicle. There are numerous threads on this site about this bumper and people are all over the place on it. My favorite is Rokmen Mercenary - looks just right on a TJ. Rokmen.com

I like how the ARB keeps a somewhat factory look. It's very clean. But if you like the larger bumpers, check out the SkidRow ones. www.skidplates.com

Well, I think why I like the bumper is how beefy it is.

I know stock isn't strong, but I want something that if someone runs into me, or rear-ends me that it will take the beating. Or, something that will protect the front real well.

One of my older Jeeper friends, who actually got me started on this (he passed away, he had MS, bless his heart) had an XJ with steel wrapped all around. He's gotten hit many times in that Jeep, and everytime that solid steel he had protected the frame. One of the cars that hit him got totalled it hit him so hard.

So, I really want something beefy and tough, and something that will take the brunt of the impact. The arb looked pretty good.

Not sure what I would do about the back through, since their back bumper is $1200.

I've got one. It came with my jeep. I like it because if I need to reach far into the engine bay I can just stand on it and lean in

If the owner of a Hummer ever threatens to crush your Jeep there is a simple means of escape, just drive off the road.

I like my Road Armor I nose dived into a Dune last weekend and slightly tweaked the mounting brackets, but the external skin of the bumper didn't flinch.

I've had friends do similar things with ARB bumpers and bent their bumper, although that's generally on Nissan Patrols and so on.

I was all set to get the ARB bumper but at the time they didn't have the matching rear... now they've solved that problem, and I think ARB bumpers and rockers make a great compromise between strength and weight.

But I'll be sticking with the super beefy RA bumpers - I like looking a little more extreme





ARB's definitely my second choice...
