Does anyone have any reviews/opinions of ARB's latest Defender winch bumper?

I like it. Its installed on my 110 with the recommended Warn winch and works and looks pretty good installed. I went for the one without the brush guard for looks and weight.

looks like it belongs on a hummer. totally not Land Roveresque in any way. Worse then a Bottorf. Apologies to those who like it or own one.

This will fit the 2015 defender perfectly. Get it now and it will last you through a few trucks.

What do you need it for:
Trails - mild, yes
Trails - tougher, no (try Rockware)
Overlanding, yes
Steep approach angle, no (try Rockware)
Heavy duty, no (try Rockware)
Posing, probably

DB: I have a feeling you'll give me grief if I change from my stock bumper to anything else

Waggoner5: That looks really good! I'm considering the brush guard version...doesn't seem like much extra to protect the grill and wings.

CDB: What part of the ARB bumper is weaker than the Rockware? Is it not boxed?

I've seen both on Charles and Jeff's trucks and I like them both and they both have gone through some gnarly trails...I'm not a "serious rockcrawler" by any means. Just looking for something to protect the front grill, wings, lights and surrounds in case I tap a tree or an animal. Or fall into a ditch (sorry Mike!! )

Charles has a rockware, and Jeff wants something else. Ed will get his nuts put in a vise if he buys a arb.

That arb looks like shit. Reminds me of the abortions I see hanging off the front ends of full sized trucks. Mantec or rockware for a defender hlc fab for anything else.

I run a rockware. I'm not thrilled with the aesthetics of them but it was the best option for me at the time. I actually like the look of the old ARB but they don't have good approach angle and apparently are not that strong. ARB got the lines of the bullbar right on that early one. The bumper was a bit ungainly though. The new ARB is just butt ugly. And I have kept quiet on the electronic dash....oy...

What dash?

And an ARB is too heavy for that CRV anyway
