What modification are you talking about? I have had two ARB's no mods were ever needed.

If you're installing on a 97, it is because the two transmission cooling lines just underneath the radiator.

You need to cut a small corner on each side as those ARB bumpers imported to US are designed for trucks with manual transmission.

You can also ask for a cutting "instruction" (a diagram shows you what to cut) from ARB tech support.

hope this help.

Both of my trucks came with ARB's, neither of them had any modifications that I could tell. My guess is that this may have been on the early ARB's.

Personally, I would get a different brushbar, but I am not a fan of the ARB's. The only mod I needed to do was trimming the frame horns when I installed my SG brush bar.
