    I believe you have to remove the bumper. I purchased an Arb this past summer and had to install it prior to mounting the bumper. There is no room for installing the winch when the bumper is on the vehicle.
    Checkout parksoffroad.com in the Tacoma section he has a good guide with photos on arb bumper install.

    I put an ARB bull bar front bumper on my 2010 Tacoma, and installed a XRC-8 after the fact. It was a little tight, but i managed to get it in there and mounted up with the help of another person. Its definitely a two person job. Does anyone know how to hook up the electrical for the parking lights/blinkers on the ARB's?
