And indexed properly this time... :eek:

Measuring 13 1/4" from rim lip to fender. :cool:

Thanks for those figures guys.

Rides great and is no longer harsh on the bumps.

Now I'm ready for CMCC again!

macneil - if you do not mind me asking why the TJM over the ARB? Also, doesnt look like cost is much of an object on your mods, but how do the 2 compare price-wise? your whole set-up is awsome...by the way, i am talking about the front replacement, not the rear...

Thanks for the compiments. I don't have a real concrete reason for choosing TJM over ARB other than at the time, I guess I was more concerned with weight and corrosion so I wanted aluminum. Only TJM made this. In hindsite, maybe I would have chosen an ARB steel only for collision purposes. I've been hit twice in the PS front. One by a cab and another by a nut in G35. Both times there vehicles didn't fare well, but my little wing bent in and had to be pulled out. Not a great design.

FWIW: Both TJM and ARB make very good products, bumpers included. The ARB bumper line (front) are generally heavier...even when comparing steel to steel. The reason I chose the TMM T3 Classique: Lighter weight; winch mounts directly to frame; appearance (subjective); one piece design.

I think if you want the strongest commercially available bumper the ARB (or Slee) is the choice IMO: They use thicker guage steel typically. It, like so many of our mods, comes down to how and where you are going to use your rig.
