Default ARB bumper...

Hey guys thinking about getting an ARB bumper for the 4R. I have a couple of questions I hope you can help me with. I've read this bumper leaves a kind of big gap between the fenders is there a way to move this bumper up to avoid this gap? I know u have to have a gap for flexing but I do have 1.5" BL and I do not want 2" gap between the bumper and the fender. Anyway to properlyu fix this? Thanks all

Here are some ideas.

1. ARB with bodylift

personally, Id leave the gap, IF you wheel it, these rigs seem to flex ALOT in the front..
Ive seen where a few guys would leave the gap, and get some kind of rubber trim stuff from Home Depot.
heres a quick pic I found

BTW, Ive seen an ARB on a 4th gen, doesnt look bad, and you dont have to wait 8 months

Mine is sittin' in the living room waiting for some more fundage to paint and put on. The gap is certainly supposed to be there.

I'm just going to fill the gap with something like this or something similar....


It will be a game time decision whether I attach it to the under side of the headlight or the top of the bumper "aiming" up.

You can modify the mounting bracket for the BL.
ARBs are cool and very solid bumpers. Mine been through some tough terrain and handle it great. I'd leave the gap. On my bumper it less then 1/2". Looks Ok.

I'd recommend leaving the gap alone.

I install tons of ARB bumpers - the design was to allow space for the difference flex between the body and the frame. If you eliminate too much of the gap, the bumper can contact the body when more extreme wheeling is underway, and that can be expensive.
