After reading some threads of fellow FJC owners with after market front bumpers rubbing on the A/C pipe that's in the front of the radiator< I dicided to check mine this morning.

Sure enough it was eating away the tube. Went to pepboy's and got me some fuel line and covered it.

recomendation: check it out!

Yeap, mine had start to get closer to my ARB bracket. So, i actually relocated that little mount that hold it in place right above the typical bumper contact point and i put some fuel line around it. It now has about 1.5 inches of clearance

This exact scenario happened to me four days after buying the rig last year.

Since the dealer installed the ARB bumper and he was 350 miles away, my local dealer made the repair and sent the bill to the selling dealer.

Only a minor inconvenience overall but now I'm thinking I will check it again to be sure things have not shifted.

I had the same problem, but I did not find it in time. The only fix: replaced the condesor. It was expensive. I now have a hose covering it.

As a side note, Mine was not touching the winch, but had about 0.5" of clearance, but the vibrations got it to rub anyways.

The thing is that when I first installed the bumper there was no rubbing, I guess once it articulates with the truck and settles the problem starts.

Thanks guys, I anticipated alittle movement and covered the line with come split loom (2week old install). I just checked it and the split loom is already cut. Maybe its time relocate the line more and knotch the bumper alittle too!

No rubbing detected on mine yet, but the line was relocated pretty far. What size fuel line (inside diameter) are you finding works best?
