Limb Riser Installation

After having cracked the windshield and getting slapped in the face with branches (while inside the truck with window open) I decided to install a set of limb risers. My ARB bumper already has a set of additional tabs welded onto it for attaching kayak straps and for the top part I used a set of Rigid LED light brackets that I had left over. The Rigid brackets fits perfectly in the slot on the top of the new Front Runner Racks. I will do a field test in the woods as soon as my Front Runner roll cage clamp feet are ready.

You have to admit...that's a pretty nice setup! Did you make the cables? If so what supplier?

Can you post some more photos of you LR in you registry?

The cables are powder coated galvanized aircraft wire that I got from ebay. Let me know if you want some as I have a roll of it. I can find out who made it.

Thanks. I wanted them all black so as to make them less noticeable but I'm not sure how well the stainless buckles would take powder coating.

They are easily removable so you can remove them when you're not in the bush.

I will post a component sourcing list here shortly.

The stainless will powder fine, they just need to be blasted with aluminum oxide first to give Texture so the powder has something to grip to. Looks good!!

As soon as the rack feet are ready. Also annoyed with getting branches stuck between rack and roof so this should help.

The other tabs are for kayak straps.

What is the other tab om the bumper for?

Here's the BOM. Certainly not the most affordable but a nice set up. The toggles have a quick release clip that reduces the install/removal to about a minute or so.

Parts Breakdown:
Black Aircraft Cable wire rope, 3/16" x 100 feet. $23.50 - Source: eBay.
2 Quick Attach Toggle (Brand: Suncor) $32.99 ($65.98 total) - Part#600900 - Source: Defender.com
2 Quick Attach Turnbuckle Toggle (Brand: Suncor) $39.99 ($79.98 total). - Part#600890 - Source: Defender.com

on the tabs that are welded on to the ARB bar - did you have to re powder coat the bar or - just paint it?
I like it

Little side note on these...the suppliers that Carl listed are good. Received all of the parts pretty quick. It's an easy assembly and looks really good! Anyone local to me that needs some of this cable let me know...I still have 90'...lol.

Spray paint works just fine. Just make sure to match the finish to your bumper if you care about those kind of things.
