ARB Summit Bumper is awesome but a pain to install

    The bumper company I originally ordered screwed the pooch and missed their deadline by almost a month. Able to get my money back and decided on a ARB. Glad I did, well out together bumper and more approach clearance. Had a couple ARB on last Tacoma’s. Instructions on this one weren’t to bad. Definitely go in order. Forgot to install some styling parts and had to un hook bumper to get to them.. so many parts to keep track of. There was one mistake in the instructions. When adding Clevis for bumper brackets, it says put threaded in first towards inside. Make sure it’s on the outside to line up correctly. Over alll very happy, just set a whole day aside. Thanks to @bigdogtundra for some beta.

    Yeah, I guess that is easier than having two or three guys trying to position it in just the right spot or using some floor jacks. How much does it weigh?

    With winch at least 275... I put the 613 coils to compensate. With bumper coils ride so much better

    Ya I’ll get one up for you. Camper is a 2016 hallmark Milner. Little heavier than FWC but way better built and warmer. U want interior shots?

    Looks badass. One of my favorite bumpers for really any 4x4. Pricey but worth every penny.

    Thanks for posting the shot of the trimmed section; the instructions are terribly clear to me and am in the middle of the install now.

    Did you have to chamfer the edges of the chassis stud nut to get it to fit in the opening on the frame?

    Made to work with your air bag system.
    Won't come apart when you wreck that deer, elk or moose.

    Funny thing, all the deer stopped jumping in front of me once I put the bumper on. It's was a regular thing on the way to work in the early am.

    That looks great. Looking to buy one before winter hits. What lift / tire sizes are you running? Do you think I could install the winch after putting the bumper on? Or should I just wait and buy both at once?

    I actually had to remove and reinstall the winch as I had it in 180* out, so yes, you can, with the caveat that depending on the solenoid mounting, that might be more difficult.

    Stock tires and lift right now...definitely sits nose down and I lost some height, and steering is mushy. I've got a lift on order and am going with the OME stuff. I have bags in the rear due to the camper already.
