Modifed ARB Bumper

Will ARB modify their bumpers according to a customers needs?

I have looked all over the internet to find the “right” bumper that meets my ideas of form fit and function.

ARB’s d90 winch bumper is close to meeting my needs but will require a few mods.

I am looking at increasing the diameter of the center hoop to look more aggressive while reducing the height of the two outer hoops. Additionally I would like fog lights integrated into the bumper along with a set of recovery points.

Here is a model ARB put together for the new jeeps that meets 90% of my requirements.

NO, ARB is a big manufacturer in Australia. You need a small shop in the US. Call Rockware, they will make what you want.

You can try rovertym (www.rovertym.com) .. they are located in Durham, NC, which is closer than Rockware... they don't currently offer any D-90 bumpers that I know of, but they could probably custom make you something.

Mostly the same people there it seems... I don't expect to see any decline in quality...
