Scored an ARB zj front bumper for 80$ today

Post by candymancan »

So there was a 5.9 limited 98 grand cjerokee in the jy today.. someone took the pcm and electric fan which sucks.. that stuff sells for 250 and 100$ respectivly.

But i got a solid steel winch compatible ARB bumper.... wow.. for 80$ lol. This thing is 1200$ new from the manufacturer..

Also got a 5.9 grill and hood louvers and other things.

My silver 5.9 hit a deer at 60mph 2 1.2 years ago and it crusjed lots of things.. including my grill.. i fixed the Jeep but for 2 years.. had to use a basic zj grill and un painted bumper cover..

Now i got this like 150 lbs steel bumper to put in its place and got the niner grill back.

God i so lucked out. And i dunno why this was even on this ZJ with those HIDEOUS wheels.. lol wow. Ill probly take those ugly fog lights off though.. put better ones on

Hell yea man.. I just wish it had recovery points.. if ARB charges 1200$ lol there should be d ring slots or something.. but there isnt which is dumb. I wouldnt pay 1200$ for this new lol.. but ill take it for 80$ haha. Better than my plastic bumper.

But with the plastic i have factory tow hooks.. I cant use em with this steel bumper.

Jist cleaned. Sanded a little bit by hand and repainted it
