ARB Summit Bumper is awesome but a pain to install

    Just ordered mine and am SO FISNDFUIDHNG EXCITED.

    I'm looking through the instructions... Is this the part you said was wrong? Is it still wrong? If so, can you elaborate a bit on how so? I'm having a hard time figuring out what you meant. Thanks!

    I'd like to know this as well. Also, where did you find those instructions? The instructions that came w/the bumper are in black & white & I can't really tell what's in half the pictures.
    Since it's been so long since you posted, I assume you got yours installed. Any tips or tricks? I'd like to install all the lights & pieces before I install it onto the truck. Is that possible?

    Hardest part was deadlifting the bumper into place (tied a rope to either end of the bullbar).

    A uni bit is helpful.

    That big nut thing was too big to fit into the holes in my frame so I had to grind the crap out of them to get them to hammer into the frame. The directions ARE backwards. You put it in with the threaded part towards the outside, not the inside, of the frame. This bumper has been a complete and total asswhoop to install and I used to install truck accessories for a living. It’s insane all the shit you have to do with this install.

    I know the part you're talking about, and I heard that someone else in these forums also thought the instructions were backwards. However, when I read them, I chalked it up to just a VERY BAD choice of words, which could be taken either way. But, once you get the parts in front of you, in person, you figure it out pretty quick lol

    When you wire for the white LED light, here’s how you wire it. This is using the wires coming out of the DRL. DS is top pic then PS.
    MAKE SURE you put the lights in the correct orientation. I missed the part about the arrow on the back of the light facing outward! It’s a total bitch to turn one around after the bumper is installed.

    I am looking at getting the Sumit bumper too. Looks awesome. Any chance you could post a pic looking down over the top/center of the bumper? I am trying to get a feel for how much access there will be to the winch clutch handle.

    You don’t reach it thru there. There’s a ‘grill’ on the front of the bumper that opens and you reach thru that.

    Here’s from the top. Keep in mind, my control box isn’t mounted yet so this area will decrease in access to handle. Handle is on the DS.

    I would ditch those wire tap connectors, they are not water/moisture proof. Eventually the wires will corrode. If you don't want to swap them out, I would at least open them up, fill them up with dielectric grease (like overflowing, absolutely filled) and tightly wrap them in electrical tape.

    They’ll be wrapped. That pic was after 2 days of working on this damn bumper and I was done. :thumbsup:

    Lol understood. And that is good. There have been plenty of projects I happily reach a stopping point and just throw down my tools and walk away lol
