    so i had a little accident with a ditch a few days ago, and i want to replace my factory bumper with an arb, im ordering today, but had one quick question


    does the fog light compatable arb bumper (3423130) actually come with fog lights already installed or does it just have the cut outs, leaving you the option to install them?

    i rarely if ever use my current fog lights, so its not that big of a deal to me. i would pay the extra $100 if it comes with the fog lights already installed, but i dont use them enough to pay the extra $100 and then have to spend more money on lights to go in the cut outs...


    thanks!

    it doesnt come with the fogs, your factory foglights could possibly be used if you were able to fab a mount up, theyre almost the same size. i bought mine with my bumper for +-80 bucks i believe, and theyre brighter than my stock fogs were.

    no pics of it in the ditch, but i will say none of my four tires were touching dirt. truck bottomed out on the embankment and the nose of the truck was down in the ditch. my back tires were about 4 feet off of the ground. it wasnt pretty. but insurance money is going to help pay for an arb bumper, so i cant complain....

    here is a pic of the damage to one side. my other side was also damaged, along with the drivers side rocker panel where it was sitting on the dirt.

    one other question, can the fog lights be installed after the bumper is on, or is it only possible before its installed?

    dang. but yeah you can install them after its on.. hell only thing holding them is a lil spring and a screw. takes like 2 mins to get em in. you can get the wiring kit and match em to your factory harness i believe but i rewired mine to a hot switch so i can run em whenever i want

    you can get the arb with either just a turn signal and marker light combo.

    or the deluxe bull bar with the fog lights turn signal/marker light and the fog lights on the arb are actually not to bad. there pretty bright right out of the box and a set of new bulbs and they would be really nice.

    Lights are separate. When you order it should say something like ARB recommends such and such part with this bumper.
