Living in Texas with all the deer and hogs, a heavy ARB bumper is almost a necessity! I like mine and the weight is not a factor in off-road travel.

Don't know if you've gotten the 285s or the lift yet, but with 285s you should have at least a 3-inch lift. The OME set up if very functional and cost effective. It costs way less than the $1600 you mention in your blog. I suggest heavy springs for the front (ARB Bumper and winch) and mediums for the rear. If you put heavies on the rear it makes for a very rough ride unless you are loaded all the time... You do not need to do the frame mod to run 285s.

cheers,

dale

I saw a guy selling one on the Dallas CL a week or two ago in Denton. He had the outer portion but not the mount. He was asking $600.

That being said, I've played around with selling mine. Thinking about going with the MAF Oz-Bogan. Might be a month or two before I do that though.

Check on price of mounting kit before buying. You will be SHOCKED at the price!
