  • FSJ ARB Bull bar front winch bumper

    I have not found a front winch bumper for my GW that I like. I like some of the ARB designs. I was wondering if anyone has tried to adapt a bumper that was meant for another application to the GW. My thoughts were if the width was correct or close and the front wrap around angles were right, wouldn't it mean simply adapting new mounting points?

    Let me know if anyone has any thoughts on this.
    thanks!

    I seem to remember something about a Land Rover bumper being close but I don't remember any details.

        This is a TJM bumper for a Toyota Gen 3 4-runner. I am putting it on a chief and so far it looks like it's going to be just about the perfect length. I know ARB makes a lot of bumpers for these 4 runners, so you shouldn't have a problem finding a style you like.

            I don't know how good of an idea it will give you, since the previous owner added some "flavor" to the original paint.

                    I think that tjm bumper looks perfect. Went to their website to try to find it without any luck. Got a part number by chance? I would really like to see some pics of it when its all done.

                      There isn't a listing for that series on their website. Are any other a good substitute?

                        I will take a look to see if I can find a part number for you tomorrow. I'm going to try and get started on it this weekend, so I'll keep you updated with pics of the progress.

                          I think I was having a brain fart or something. I mean to say toyota land cruiser. But land rover came out. Let me do a lil research to see what I can find for ya.

                            Cool.

                            What kind of modification does it require?

                              I'm not 100% on what needs to be modified. I know how it mounts to the truck/wag has to be changed. I have searched the forum but I can't find the thread where a guy put one of those bumpers on a j truck. It looked great though. Maybe if you search it you'll have better luck than me.
