    ARB doesn't make a rear bumper. Kaymar does though, but I don't have a pic of one.

    ARB does (or did, maybe not anymore) make a rear bumper, I had one on my 62, I think the rear of the frame is different between the 60s and 62s, so I dunno if they are a universal fit. Here's a pic:

    It was an OK bumper, but not that great actually. The little wings on the ends were too flimsy, they were too easy to bend into the body, like this:

    It was also too weak to add a tire carrier. I also found out that access hole to reach the tire winch wouldn't allow the stock 2-piece crank thru, I had to get a long one-piece rod from a mini-truck. Fortunately I found that out in the driveway, not on the side of a dark highway with a flat tire.

    I wouldn't buy one, even if they were still available. The Kaymar and others are better and probably cheaper.

    fancy that. I'd never even seen one. I said they didn't because ARB imports the Kaymar.

    Funny....


    I sold a half-dozen of those over the years...

    They were a significant improvement over stock, but not something you were going to pound rocks with and expect to keep your truck from getting damaged...

    For the amount of hardcore abuse that I give my truck, that would actually work pretty well. I really like the design and proportions.

    I like mine. I don't bang my truck up so I have no testimant as to how strong it is. For DD, it's more than stout.
