Unlike most brush guards and bumpers, ARB Bull Bars incorporate a fully engineered mounting system which completely replaces the factory bumper. ARBs Deluxe Bull Bar selection is the most extensive. Loaded with features aimed at making remote area travel safe, no other bumper offers the same degree of vehicle integration, protection or functionality.
This bumper is only 8 pounds heavier than a full Aluminum bumper

Who needs instructions
Picked it up and the box was as big as my truck. Got it home opened the box found small box with parts and my new bumper.should of took it out of box at store.
Watched you tube and read instructions got the bumper painted the way I wanted felt a little nervous. Everyone on line was cutting and welding to get old bumpers off and to fit new bumper on. I don't weld and had to barrow angle grinder from a friend.
My 13 year old son and I sat down in the morning and started Un bolting old bumper lots of hidden bolts took us about 2 hours.
We went for lunch.
Came back to truck and paired up bits and pieces and started installing realizing the instructions are harder to understand than just putting it together. 30 minuts laiter we were making our final fitting adjustment and hooking up the lights. I only had to redrill skid plat hole to line up. No cutting no welding easy

ABR Deluxe Bull Bar Winch Mount Bumper
Bumper is very well built and gives an aggressive look to your vehicle. Doesn't pre-load factory suspension due to weight. Instulation on a 1999 Toyota 4runner limited. The factory bumper mount has a plate where it bolts to frame. This plate is welded and these welds have to be grinded off and a hole has to be drilled through the bottom of the frame to bolt brackets of new bumper. Installation is not difficult if you have some experience with a grinder and drill. The instructions are difficult to understand but videos online assist with install. Overall I would recommend this bumper to anyone who goes off roading often does not plan on ever putting a factory bumper back on. The delivery company used to deliver product sucked

I've dreamed of owning an ARB Bumper since I was a kid. Now that I own one, the company has not let me down! Great bumper! Very light for being a plate bumper!

Poor Installation Instructions
On my daily driver, good protection while checking out the ranch. Good protection against wildlife strikes...Wild Hogs!

Dissappionted, bumper was bent
Package arrived undamaged packaged well, however when I went to fit on vehicle discovered bumper had been bent, didn't appear to be from transit since packing was not damaged. Also rubber bumper pads separated from mounting bolts. I think ARB might have a QC issue. Wound up repairing bumper and discarding pads. I purchased prefab since I didn't have time to build myself. I will custom build next time. I have been promised a store coupon for my inconvenience that might cover the paint, haven't received it yet. I would still recommend this product just get it at the store and check it for damage before you take it.

1996 Tacoma Bull Bar
Installation was pretty straightforward and no problems with fittament. Nice finish.
Though the instructions were not too acurate but I guess this bar is meant to fit multiple years. It was missing some hardware even though package was sealed. I'm not running a winch now so there was enough hardware to install the bar.

Easy Installation, Looks Great!!
This is a 2 person job. Getting it aligned is much easier that way.
The instructions were amazingly clear, but you have to read them carefully before you start.
Some steps aren't addressed as closely as I wish they were. I installed the bracket that holds the skid plate backwards. Thus no skidplate - or I have to drill it. However, it only covers the winch area so I've been fine without it.
The Warn M8000 winch fit like it was made for it. That is why I got the bumper in the first place. My 2004 Tacoma TRD is 2wd & I wanted the security of a winch for muddy trails.
There are places to mount lights high & low. I put a pair of Dually's in the low holes and they are brighter than my stock lights (but that is another review).
This ARB bumper is nice looking and solid. The winch mount has holes in all the right places.
An added plus is I can grab the bumper to help my old bones get up if I've been under the truck for any reason.
I would highly recommend this bumper for anyone wanting to hang a winch and/or lights while making your Tacoma look a bit tougher.

bumper, no brackets [@]
Like the bumper but when I got back from deployment, I found everything but the mounting brackets. Any input for that? invoice # [@]Cheers
I have a 1995.5 Tacoma and I was wondering if I will have to modify the nose of the frame (cut) to mount this replacement?

Thanks for the inquiry don, the ARB 4x4 Accessories Black Toyota Tacoma Deluxe Bull Bar Winch Mount Bumper part # ARB3423020 does NOT require cutting on a Tacoma but if mounting to a 4runner, that would require cutting.

Is there a special kit to fit this bumper when u have a 3 inch body lift on the truck ?
Pipeman from Warrenton nc on
The body lift should have already came with this bracket to do this. They do not come with the ARB bumper.
