Red face ARB Bull Bar W/winching capabilities?

Has anyone ever seen an ARB bull bar that cannot facilitate a winch? My 90 I purchased a couple of years ago has an ARB bull bar but does not have an opening for the fairlead. I called ARB and spoke witha tech and he said ARB doesn't make a bull bar that you cannot mount a winch to. At this point, I can either blow torch an opening or look for a new bar all together. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Are you sure it is an ARB bar?

Lets see a pic of this ARB, someone may have for odd reasons welded the thing closed or something.

They used to make a bumper that was non-winch...I remember installing one a few years ago.

ARB makes non-winch bumpers.

I dunno how you talked to at ARB but they don't know their product line very well.

No need to post the pics, it must be a non-winch bb. They don't have much of a product line not to know that. Thanks for the help. gh

He meant for a Defender. They make non-winch bars for other vehicles. If you look at your own links, you will not see a non-winch bar listed for a Defender.

True enough, but since it was not purchased brand new yesterday, I thought that maybe ARB used to make them for the Defender. Or maybe since the frame-rail spacing is almost exact between a RRC and a D90 they used a Rangie one that is available.

And my initial response was to this statement.
