    All-looking for the cheapest price on a non-winch ARB bull bar in the US. So far I found one in Utah for $620.50. Others will match or even beat that with free shipping so there are some deals to be had.

    ****4 Wheel Parts Free Shipping Ends Today: 8/28/06**** Hurry while you still can...I took the plunge and ordered a non-winch delivered for $620.50 total.


    Please let me know if there are any cheaper out there.

    To qualify for tech--can 1 person install this bumper and how many bolts are involved? I have already removed the stock bumper to bang out a dent (far too easy to bend that metal with a hammer--scary!)

    I installed mine myself no problem. Just pick it up from the center and walk it onto the frame horns.

    There are 6 bolts per side, 2 on the top of the frame, 2 on the outboard side and 2 on the bottom that also go through the factory tow points.

    The big issue is that ARB was not going to stock non winch bumpers any longer. They were not much difference in price anyway.

    Do you know why they were not going to stock them? Was it just because they are not as popular? I use my 80 for the daily commute (300 miles per week) and will not need a winch so I preferred to not have the empty winch hole.

    These are steel right? Does anyone know the gauge?

    i just got a non winch version for mine. Does anyone know if they can be retrofitted with a winch, should I some day decide that I need one? Is the steel on the non winch version thinner than the winch version?

    edit: got mine for $643 w/ no tax and free shipping.

    www.4wheelparts.com. I just looked at the order again. It was actually $647, though. I did get a free $75 gift card for spending over $750 dollars (I also bought a snorkel). All told, the invoice came in under $950 for bullbar, snorkel, and free $75 gift card. Pretty fast service too.

    BTW, did anyone else have hell getting the back two bolts into the tops of the framerails? The only other problem I had is the lights from my damage multiplier don't fit in the ARB.
    :cheers:

    Quite simple actually, demand.

    The vast majority of installations want a winch (prolly close to 90%).

    If someone wants a winch they sure as hell WILL NOT buy a non-winch bar. If they do not want a winch but all that is available is one that fits a winch they say "OK, I guess I'll take it."

    $600--would take it if I lived near San Diego. Darn!

    Now I'm deliberating over what CDan said. Hmmm...there is a reason why they are discontinuing the non-winch version.

    Thanks Kevin!

    Email Kurt at Cruiseroutfitters.com. Excellent pricing, beyond excellent service. And he's a nice guy as well as a Mud regular here. If there are nonwinch bars in the system, he can get them to you in time for the Fall deer/truck collision season to begin.....
