ARB Stubby Front Bumper

Ok thinking about pulling the trigger on this bumper. Who is running one and any pros and cons to it? The only hang ip I have is the fact that the bumper doesn't have a option to retain the factory fog lights.

Lets see some pictures and hear some opinions!!!!

I have that and am very happy with it. Not to tough an install by myself and room for two sets of lights if you want, plus the hi-lift jacking points. Ill try and send you some picks in a bit.

Wow looks great, any idea on how much she weighs right out of the box?

Cant remember, but if you google it on amazon you can probably get a shipping weight.

And a little plasti-dip makes that big ARB sticker on the front go away.

The stubby is very light compared to the full width ARB bull bar.Easy 1 person install and very well built. The powder coating and fit is excellent.

It is a great bumper. I think it weighs essentially the same as the stock bumper, but is very well made. I have had mine on for 18 months, finish still looks great. Install wasn't too bad, with some minor cutting and the relocation of vacuum cylinder.
Personally, don't think the stock fogs are worth retaining, as most aftermarket units will provide more illumination.

What I really like about this bumper are the end cap provisions for a hiLift.

Factory fogs are so so until you put 35W halogen bulbs inside them
Very bright flood with sharp cut off, DOT compliant and practically free.

I went with the 4000K (yellow) spectrum for fog and rain.

Yeah I am a fan when they are in the bumpers. surprised more companies don't do it. Maybe 4 companies add them to their bumpers.
