Soo i want to put my rears up front and if i do i will weld in a new front leaf hanger to drop the leafs a couple of inches, but i was wondering how i would do this with my ARB bumper? The ARB looks like it will totally interfere with the weld in hanger. Does anyone know if this will work or have pictures of how it may need to be modified? Thanks!

Either some fabrication skillz are going to be in order or youll have to go with a different front bumper I believe. I have a Warn bumper and have had an ARB, they have the same brackets and I've been contemplating this also. Either I'm going to fab a new bracket system that stays away from that location or pay someone to, my welding skillz aren't perfect yet but I'm learnin.

OK, so ill admit i was just in denial.....and now except the realization that i will have to modify the bumper severely or get a marlin bumper..... so now my question is has anybody done this retrofit with a custom bracket system?

Looks to me like it would not be that hard to modify to make it work. Just take some thought about it. If it were mine I would sell it on CL and buy a tube bumper, because I do not like that style anyway. But that is just me.

ya i could modify it but i am afraid i will be compromising the mounting point strength and risk depleting the resale value of it if i ever do decide to sell it. I personally like the ARB look over the complete tube style but i wouldn't mind having one if that's what it takes.

That would be a pretty easy fix if you have a plasma/torch/cut-off wheel.  They're not worth a ton anyways so if you like the look, modify it & run it!  I personally like ARB bumpers although I have never owned one. Just my :twocents:
