EDIT: No mounting hardware

Just was browsing CL using Search Tempest as usual. Seems like a decent deal

Dang, if it comes with the mounting kit, that's a real good deal... I'll be discussing our finances with the wife tonight Smile (hopefully none of yall jump on this before then!)

I saw it on cl yesterday. The amount of fjs up here I'd move likelightning if you really want it. I emailed him asking if he had the mounting kit no response as of yet. Good luck looks like a great deal.

Just spoke with the guy! He says it does NOT come with the mounting kit Sad

He bought it three months ago and now has to sell his FJ, so it never got installed. He was under the impression that there are two different types of ARB bumpers (this one being Generation 1 he thinks), and he heard that one type required the expensive mounting kit, and one did not. CAN ANYONE CONFIRM?

Not looking good gentlemen/women (if there are any on here still)... Just got off the phone with ARB and it looks like this first Gen. (part 3420100) DOES require the mounting kit, which he says the MSRP is $525.12. OUCH Sad

Yeah definitely not worth it w/o the kit. You KNOW the person knows it is needed, so why not mention it in the darned ad!?

The mounting points are pretty intense...Maybe it would be worth the hassle for ~300 bucks

That install parts kit comes up at about $450 online.

Yea, and for the overall price, I'd rather just spend a couple extra hundos and get it all new... that, or have Mike build me one Twisted Evil

that mounting kit is actually nothing...its 1/8" skeleton...and if Ryan (speedrye) let me look at his im sure i could duplicate it pretty easily...but not getting in trouble with ARB ...lol...some folks frown on that sort of thing...LOL....and $450 for a mounting kit like that is pure and simply highway robbery...its actually very wrong...also since its a Gen 1 bumper ARB should sell the mounting kit for close to nothing since you have to have it...its obviously included with the Gen 2...(mounting that is)

Yeah, you're more than welcome to measure my truck, but I don't have the mounting kit since it won't fit my truck with the body lift and the bumper raised the way it is. It's easy to measure and would be cheap to make a pair though.

I could be mistaken, but it looks like the CL bumper has everything except the side frame brackets. Someone just unbolted the bumper from the stock mounts and the frame brackets and is selling it that way. This is the same way I bought mine on CL (except mine was $400 and included the IPF fog lights) and all you need are the brackets and a few bolts. Mike's more than capable of making two simple brackets.

You know, I was actually wondering the same thing, which in case would make it a bit easier to fix. I really appreciate you offering your truck for measurements! I just tried calling the guy back to offer a lower price, but had to leave a message. I'll let you guys know as soon as I hear back! Thanks again!

Alright fellas, I just talked to the guy. He's willing to come to $350 for me. Mike, as long as you are comfortable building those brackets, and the price isn't too high, I think I'll be willing to go for this.

That being said, what steps would we need to do next? I guess I'd just want to kind of get an estimate and an idea on how we would go about duplicating some brackets. This can always be discussed via PM or over the phone. Just let me know!

Here are some of the best pics I could find of the bracket: (bottom right area of the first picture)

You can bolt the ARB up without the brackets without any problems. Just don't mount a winch or do any major pulling until Mike gets some brackets.

Mike- I'll probably want a pair of the brackets as well so I can sell my ARB with them and get a tube bumper.

I've got some bad ideas for a bumper. You know I don't do things the way most people do... Don't worry, if I replace it, it'll be more awesome than what's there!

I like where yall's heads are at! I'm gonna be giving Mike a call tonight to discuss further, but maybe we can plan on all three meeting up to get those brackets put together! As of now, my plan is to pick the bumper up this weekend or next, then meet up with you guys whenever available.

As far as mounting without brackets for the time being, I reckon that would be an option, but I'm hoping to snag my dad's Warn and Optima off his FJ40 before he sells it (we'll see how reluctant he is to that).
