Not sure if this is the right place to post, but I want to find out what kind of brush guard I have. It's ARB and attached to a 1989 fj62 that I bought. I love it, but I need to replace the Warn winch on it. Can anyone ID the model for me and let me know if there is anything I need to look out for when looking for new winches? I know that this brush guard isn't made anymore and is from the 90s.

Many thanks!

its the old model ARB. It fits the WARN M12000 too. Tight fit. I had a WARN m10000 installed and it fit perfectly but that winch isn't made an longer.
Contact ARB USA - they'll let you know what current winches fit in it

Why does the winch need to be replaced? I’ll take the old one.

I have a 12v motor and controller available if you are interested.
Nice! I’ll DM you if I need it. Reading the responses here and looking up the bumper + winch makes me really want to fix it and not get a different model. It’s at the shop, so if it needs the motor I’ll hit you up. Thx!

When a DC motor isn't used for a long time, oxidation builds up on the commutator, which results in non-operation. The motor just needs to be removed and the commutator bars and brushes cleaned. A very simple job, which I just had to do on mine.

I’m going to really give this a try. Sounds like I have a treasure I didn’t even know I had. This rig came with the brush guard and the winch. Yahtzee!

ARB called them Bull Bars as they were initially designed as animal collision bars -
