That new ARB bumper looks insanely large. And that's not a compliment. The only ARB I've seen that I liked was the one that Gustavo had and modified for his red 90. That thing was the cat's pajamas (which I figure Jimmy will appreciate, since he loves cats and - I imagine - dresses them up with pajamas this time of year).

Sorry to hijack, but are there any ARB gurus out there who can tell me which model this is on this truck?

I can't tell the difference between 3432300 & 3432090. Trying to take advantage of Presidents' wknd sales discounts.

Thanks

Yeah I've been looking at those pics and can't really see a huge difference. Maybe the molded looking front a bar??

Now I see it. Thanks.
Why don't people like the new? It seems actually smaller, sleeker and clearly more modern. Not that the old is bad. It just looks bulkier and like it sticks out more.

I like the roof white myself.

I think the ARB looks cool and this is the first newer version that I have seen in person. Bet it's a boat anchor though

Prior to this I would've never considered painting my roof green, but I'm thinking with all the black on green my truck has, plus I have a safari cage, green roof can actually work. It's just different. Total out of the box type non-purist move.

True. Tell that to the guys with black roofs!!!!
I hear you though but after all these years with my thick ass black badger top that I never took off in the summers a green roof should be ok (with upgraded ac)

A black roof would be cool. But my defender is blue. And a blue roof would look strange I think.

i'll stick with the old style one i have.. not that hitting stuff with it makes me a believer in the sticking out from the body is a bad thing at all.

Not really digging the new one.. but i do like the high lift pockets built into it though.

Looks better and looks like it would have a better approach angle. I haven't seen one in person, so I'm just basing this one what I have seen online.
