ARB winch bumper

A little scuffed up on the bottom, and the towing rings are a little mangled up, but it is in good overall shape.

Also has limb riser rings welded on.

certainly not cherry, but not too rusty or beat up either. Better suited for a wheeler than a show piece. Anyway, I searched and it looks like the usual asking price is 450. I would like 400 for this.

I will be in Denver area in late Jan.

Thanks for viewing!

Jeff

PS I will post some pics this week...

Jeff,

Working with a body shop now to see if I can get one of another defender. If that doesn't work out I could be interested...soon. PICs will help for sure. How old is it, how much rust?

Bob,

Not sure how old it is, but I think it is only a few years old. It came on the truck when I bought it in December '05. The rust is from scraping the powdercoat off while wheeling, and then the weather getting at those places. Like I said, except for the bottom part of the bumper which looks like most ARBs do that have been offroaded, the rest of the bumper is in great shape. It has limb riser tabs welded on too.

Good PICs. Hmmm, would have to re-fab some tow rings. Will talk to the body shop and see if they can give me an estimate of state of repair and costs of the one they have versus yours. I'm ready to move faster than they are. They do a lot of Rover work and are busy as heck. Doing some body work for me too. Are those wingnut bolts for your high lift jack? No wench...errr, I mean winch?
Winch ready?

It has a winch tray, but I dont have one. To find out what model winch it takes, a quick search here would probably tell you. I think it can be easily adapted for most winches.

Yes, the bolt and wing nuts on the top are for the hi-lift. It works really well. If you are going to use it for wheeling, I would not worry about the bottom part of the bumper, besides repainting it, which I was going to do in the spring after the weather gets nice again.

I figured this much since Jabber only owned the truck for a little over a year it seems, and I think he put it on...

Gotta make this quick. Thanks Jim. Ordered. Poor choice of word...I want... to have new tow hooks fabricated on top of having the EE shackles. The stock hooks are waifer thin. Saying in the Army..."Two is one, one is none." Our shackel rings had to be the #1 stolen item by other GIs. Of course, I never did that.

Jeff: Will send email later. No news from body shop yet.

Thanks as usual to all. I love this board. Still a beginner but learning more everyday.

no real rush. Someone else has expressed interest too so let me know asap, but you have first right of refusal as they say.


My email is jsummerhill at gmail dot com

Cheers,

Jeff

I would prefer to have it p/u but if it does not sell here, then I am open to shipping. As of now, a few people have expressed interest, but I am going to see if Bob wants it within a week or two, if he doesnt, then I will contact the people who have expressed interest in the order they inquired about it.

Thanks for the interest.

cheers!

Jeff

Yeah we installed his bumper in my garage and Hansen was there to help. This bumper was on my ex-girlfriend D90 and it was less than a year old when he bought it from her.

Good luck with the sale

Thanks!

I am planning on a rockware bumper with no brush bar. The ARB bumper hung me up on the French Creek obstacle at Holy Cross too much. It just sits down way too low. I only really use this truck to tool around town here and for wheeling, so I really want a more wheeling-friendly bumper (I have only put about 1K miles on the truck in over a year!)

I need more approach, so I am going with Rockware...

Pendy, you should school everyone here with ARB's on how you modify the mounts on the ARB to provide more clearance. That's on my short list of upcoming mod's.

Maybe after I replace the last one I bent up first.

But I'll be sure to help your local guy figure it out.

Hmmmm, I'd be all ears on that one for sure. I have an Autobody Shop with one for me (probably) and they are going to be doing some welding on it for me anyway. I understand the clearance issue but I DO NOT like the look of the Rockware gear.

I dont think its the mounts, I think its the entire design. Ive always thought the ARBs were a bit much on any vehicle, granted they seem to do a little better on some than others. The Rockware is pretty nice I like the "look" and it is well made and hell its got a bottle opener on it. Its made here in the United States and is just a nice addition and compliments the Defenders lines. I am sure you could request something that could meet your criteria, and upon furthur inspection youre in CO so it should most def not be a problem. You should almost feel obligated to have a Rockware.
