Pics of newly-installed ARB Bull Bar

Well I finally bit the bullet and paid for the ARB and the Yakima...I had the ARB installed and did the Yakima roof rack myself.

I had the SAW torsion bars installed as well at the recommendation of several on this board, and they have made an incredible difference in turning/cornering. Also, I think the added weight of the bumper up front has helped me stop a bit quicker, or at least it feels firmer and more secure under heavy braking.

PIAA lights up front on the bumper as well as on the roof rack are on the way. Also, I plan to get a winch--but not until I have more cash. This baby's bleedin' me dry.

Thanks for the compliments guys.

Are the PIAA 520 lights I buy going to include what I need to hook them up to the front of the bumper or am I going to have to buy some accessories? Naturally I will need cabling, relay, and switch, but what about the mounts?

Looks good man, I love the ARB's!

I know that with my Hella's that I had bought they came with all the wiring I needed. However, if you are going to be mounting them to your roof rack you will probably need some mounting brackets from Yakima. Atleast thats what I needed for my Surco Safari.

Looking good man! The lights will definitely make thing look a lot better, but some mud terrains on that bad boy would really set it off!

Nice work with that truck!

The 520's comes with everything (relay, cable, switch and mounts) you need in mounting it to your bumper. I used to have a set of 520's mounted on my old brushguard but I sold it along with the OEM bumper when I replaced mine with the TJM T15. The switch is kind of cheesy to me so I wired mine utilizing the OEM fogs wiring and stalk. Pm me if you decide to used one of those Toyota OEM fog switch. I have two of them in my toolbox gathering dust.

Looks sweet! Where'd you get the ARB from? Looks nice and mean now.

Not to be the guy that hates on everything PIAA, but I think that for the money, there's better lights than the 520's. I had them on my Jeep, and they're over rated. For how expensive they are, they don't put down a lot of light.

I got the ARB from 4WP; I try to stay away from them because they're expensive, but they were the only ones here that I could find that could get the bumper and install it with minimal involvement by me.

I don't have my mind set on the PIAAs, they were just what came to mind first. Which ones would you suggest?

The PIAA's look cool, but you could get 2 sets of Hella 500's for the same price. I'm getting some amber 500 fogs soon. I've heard great things about Lightforce lights, but they're pretty dang pricey.
