Need ARB bumper instructions

Hello all,
First off, I want to wish you all a Marry Christmass and a awesome 2016.
A couple of weeks ago, a seller agreed to sell me a set of 10A bumpers for a grand. The day I Was supposed to pick them up, he texted saying the sold the day before for $2K... whatever...
The fact is he really did me a favor, as this morning I landed a brand new (probably a display or return) ARB deluxe bumper with bulbar for $300.
The only catch is there are no bolts or instructions, but all brackets are there.

So, my plea is for the instructions booklet, if any of you guys have kept it and can email me a copy of I would truly appreciate it. I know it is probably a long shot, as I usually throw that stuff away after installations, but a shot worth taking anyhow.

Thanks in advance.

THANK YOU!!!!
As embarrassing as this may be, I have to admit that I read that page up and down a dozen times this morning looking for that exactly but never saw that link... even emailed ARB...

Just a heads-up that the ARB setup you have going on is going to void your factory warranty. I went through the same thing and confirmed with ARB that shaving of the frame and bolting into it has to happen for install. I also confirmed with FCA that anything frame related would not be covered as this setup diminishes the integrity of the frame.

Not sure if that's a concern for you but it was a deal breaker on my 2016, so I went with Rock Hard aluminum front and rear bumpers which are 100% bolt-on, although they will be quite a bit more than the $300 you paid.

Just some info I wish I had before I purchased.

You would be in the same boat with the mopar bumpers as even though you bought a oem part it was not oem to that vehicle installed by Chrysler at their plant.

Where? The only thing you have to cut is the vacuum pump bracket, and you only have to do that if installing a larger sized winch. I do not consider that a frame mod. Drilling into frame, yes that is required. If you are dealing with a dealer that would void your warranty for an aftermarket bumper that required drilling mounting holes, I would bet he is going to want to void your warranty for ANY aftermarket bumper since that is changing the overall engineering design of the front end.

odds of a frame warranty are pretty low...not likely something will happen to the frame that's warranty related during the 3 year warranty coverage.

I was installing a winch as well, but even FCA considered shaving of the frame a no-no. While there likely wasn't going to be an issue with the frame...I wanted to give them the least amount of ammo if I ever did have a claim.

Mine is an '08 so not an issue there.

Removing ARB bumper from my 2014 JKU Rubicon

I'm going to be removing my ARB front bumper for another, lighter bumper. My question/concern is, when the ARB was installed, were there modifications done to the extent that I cannot now mount a direct bolt on bumper after market bumper, assuming if I had a stock one to start with?

I bought the Jeep with it already on, but I want it off and will sell. Assuming, that the install of the ARB didn't mess up a bolt on other brand bumper.

Thanks in advance,

Scot

you will be fine. the area that has to be cut will not affect installing another bumper.
