my ARB bumper (pics)

buyin this ARB bumper from a friend for $200. fits almost perfect on my truck because it came off a tacoma. heres a pic of me and my buddy holdin it up to my truck. of course its not up there perfectly where it will be after its on the truck. but i think its gonna look alright. gonna put 4 off road lights on it plus the 2 that are in it. no winch for now.

You have to do what you have to do. Sometimes that means getting the cutting torch and welder

Take some pics of the backside of the ARB bumper and some with your bumper off. Oh, and put them in the metal fabrication thread. You will get some good advice over there. Let me know when you post the pics up.

Hack the frame off, I did! haha.

i would recommend tacking in a temporary cross member between the rails some how so it doesn't possibly warp on you.

That picture shows two able-bodied males holding it with relative ease...I don't think it's that heavy. I've seen some of that style that require furniture dollies to move around...this one looks a good deal lighter.
