    I installed my ARB bumper this weekend on my 2010 DBL cab and was wondering how much movement does the ARB or any other after market bumper move when hitting some big bumps on the road? I can see the top bar moving when hitting some big bumps on the road. Just curious...

    I did mine a few weeks ago, and noticed the same thing. I went back a rechecked all the bolts ( all tightened with an air ratchet) and still see the same thing. I'm not too worried about it, but it does seem weird.

    I have a gen one but when I installed mine it was SOLID. I can put all 225lbs of me on the front bar and it doesn't budge. You should be able to stand in front of it and pull up and down with no effect. If not, pull I apart and check everything. That is one piece you don't want to fail.

    I think it's the frame moving back and forth. My brushguard has a lot of movment to it. I have a trend with a 2500 dodge and his hood and arb oscillate in different directions the entire time. It looks funny but it's on correct. Check the bolts and call it good.

    Yeah that is what I thought but I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't the only one. I am going to recheck the nuts and bolts. I will tell you that the ARB is built tough, and was shipped in a box on a pallet and was well packed and did not have a scratch or any damage. I have bought a ton of Jeep parts and the ARB was the first product that I have bought that was shipped and packed excellent with 5 out of 5 stars!
