I think it would do OK

That's when I decided that ARB bumpers were honest front end protection. They became a client much after that.

I got mine from RDS after my accident. They aren't drilled at all. You need to do the hole for the light and the roll cage cutout yourself. I still haven't gotten around to doing the outer lights. I like the clean look of the outer wing I've got right now as you can see here.

I can't believe I didnít see this tread when Mike posted it, but I believe he's making reference to local D90 owner here in Portland that hit a deer with his ARB head on. While I too didn't witness the actual collision I have seen the bumper after the fact (with fur still attached) and its solid. In fact the most damage, if I recall correctly, was on the passenger side door and wing from the animal rolling across it.

Tony, I see that you got matching matted fender flares too. Are those genuine LR or aftermarket? I'm assuming aftermarket, cuz I can only find glossy genuine ones.

yeah, those are aftermarket. i called them and they told me such. i'm not saying there's anything wrong with them, it's just they're not genuine LR.

I'd still like the bonnet 5-bar but they were the only ones that claimed to stock it.

hmm well I ordered some parts from them that should be in today, if not I'll drive up to the place to find out what is wrong as they are only 30 min up the road.

:eek that sucks dude. Time to get some HD brush bar like RW or ARB. However, I doubt any HD brush bar would have prevented the damage but it could've minimized it.
