    Hey everyone, I've been looking around at the ARB winch bumper threads because i'm considering buying one so i have a few questions.
    1. DO stock fog lights work in the fog light holes in the bumper? i thought i read somewhere that they did
    2. Has anyone had any problems with these bumpers? everything ive read has been positive so im just wondering
    3. and im running 5100's on the front with stock coils and stock rear leafs and shocks, i read that someone put an ARB winch bumper on and it folded their shocks cause it weighs like 200+lbs. my shocks are set at 1.75" btw

    885 with a DBC is not enough for that bumper. You'll need the 886's for sure.

    Stock fogs will not work. No issues putting it on. Wiring was a bitch, but entirely do able.
    I had it on with my stock coils and struts. Made it squat an inch more than stock height. Didn't break anything, but I wasn't offroading with it.

    Can't answer the question pertaining to the 5100s. If in doubt buy some 886s with nitrochargers. Made by the same company and to work in conjunction with the bumper.

    The bumper weighs 130lbs, but then add the skid plate, all the hardware and the mounting plate and you're much closer to 200lbs.
