    The tacoma I bought a few months ago already had a ARB bullbar on it. But it looks to be a Warn/ARB bumper. There is the Warn 'W' cut out on the face of the bumper. I was wondering if anyone has seen something like this before?
    Also I am looking at purchasing a winch and was trying to find some installation instructions on here. I tried a search, but did not find anything except pictures of the bumpers with winches installed.

    Here is a pictures of the bumper

    I put a warn xd 9000 in my arb bumper.I believe the instructions come with the winch it was easy to put in but very heavy you need a helper.

    Thanks for the info! I wasn't sure if there were any additional mounting hardware that would need to be purchased to install the winch in the bumper.

    You know I never thought that this bumper didn't fit properly until the responses to this post. So I looked through some of the build threads of people with ARB bumpers and it definitely looks a little wide. Oh well, I am not too worried about it. It will still function the same, I will inspect the frame mounts though, to ensure it is mounted securely before I install the winch.
    Looks fine from the side though!

    Try to find out what it came off of and sell it to get one that fits. It could be a land cruiser or something larger like that :notsure:

    That looks like an ARB from a Landcruiser.

    Do you know where I could find a model number or something on the bumper itself? It would be nice to get one that fits proper, but right now I have a long list of items that take priority first.

    Hm I don't think I have a model number on my actual bumper, so I doubt it unless you got the receipt with it.

    I would try to sell it/get the correct ARB bumper. ARB tests all their bumpers to be airbag compatible and safe within OEM standards, so a bumper for another rig might compromise that a little bit.

    I dont think it looks bad but if you want to know if it is the right one or what it is for, take a couple of measurements from side to side and contact ARB.

    Thanks for the input, I will crawl under there later today to see if I can find some sort of part number stamped into it or a sticker of some sort. If that doesn't work, I will just take the measurements and contact ARB. Since I live in CO, I am sure that I could sell this to someone with whatever vehicle that it fits. There are so many Toyota's out here it is crazy!
    If I did replace it, I think I would go with the ARB again though, I just like the way it looks and it is beefy!
