I say it looks good.

ARB is a huge bumper and a big part of the car. Color matching it camouflages it in a bit, diminishes the visual conflict. Even still, nobody will mistake it for factory.

ARB Black is OK. That's a lot of contrast with SWB though.

But I'm guessing a different color, such as silver, will look awful, like you pulled a color matched bumper from a different truck at the wrecking yard, and didn't have money to paint it.

Two cents - adjusted for inflation.

Yeah for my tube bumper I opted for a color that was a little different...now if I had that ARB it would be color matched for sure. It looks mean/clean
