ARB's have always sucked on Defenders theyve really outdone themselves on this one. Plus one for Rockware

C'mon, it isn't that bad if you think about what they are trying to do with it.
ARB bumpers have never been about off road or approach angles or anything. They are a good, lower cost, way to get some front end protection and house a winch (and maybe have a kangaroo bounce off without body damage). If you look at it from their intended market it isn't that bad, IMO.
The off road guys will always go with something better, like a Rockware or SG style... but for the market they are shooting for I don't think it is that bad. Just looks a little more like their D2 bumper now.

I do not check PMs. Call or email if you need something.

ECR is not a parts source. We are not in the mail order business.

Yeah not that bad IMO. I think I like it more than the old ARB in comparison, though I'm still partial to the SG/Rockware style.

ARB seem to be more associated with Overland and Expedition Travels rather than off-road prowess.
I had on on my NAS110 and now one on both my Classic and Series I Disco.

I don't think it is "out of place" what so ever. Certainly no worse than a Camel Trophy bumper ... which I highly like, but has no "sex appeal" to it either.

Just my two cents.

Barry, I don't understand. You're a mall cruiser kinda guy, and it would suit that application quite well.

It suits the Australian Outback very well - roo's, scrub and general need for a front end "basher".

Does it work well for east coast mud/trees/tight trail - not really. Would it be OK for south west rock and open trail - maybe but probably not.

For 99% of the market they are shooting for it works.

I love the load diaper comment - fits it perfectly!

I really like this model over the last one they had. The biggest plus is that they finally got rid of the rock catching shackle points and moved them to much better placement out of the way

The scale looks off like it was made for a larger truck, kind of like they slapped a f350 bumper on the 90
