ARB Summit Sahara Bumpers

Sharing many of the strength related features of a Summit Bumper, including ARB’s five-fold upswept and tapered wing profile, the Summit Sahara Bumper offers a different look without sacrificing practicality.

Like the Summit Bumper, the Summit Sahara Bumper also provides a solid platform for adding other accessories such as winches, driving lights and CB antennas.

Available either with or without the polished center tube, the Summit Sahara Bumper offers owners greater flexibility in creating their desired look.

Recessed Fog Lights

Most Sahara Bumpers feature indicators and optional fog lights for foul weather conditions. The recessed panels give both indicators and fog lights improved protection from branches and road debris.

Center Tube

An optional polished or painted center tube offers a different look to the more traditional bumper design. An internal mandrel bender is used to shape the center tube, ensuring even wall thickness throughout.

Mounting System

The mounting system is a vital part of any ARB Bumper design. ARB's mounting systems are specifically engineered to spread impact and winching loads evenly over the vehicle's chassis. This ensures the bumper functions properly in extreme conditions.

Jacking Points

Eliminating the need for a mounting bracket, jacking points are integrated into the design of most ARB Bumpers. These points also enable easier access to the clutch lever when unspooling wire or synthetic rope before winching.

Secure Mounting Points

Exceptionally durable and secure, all ARB Bumpers serve as an ideal platform to mount driving lights, helping ensure maximum performance and longevity. Driving lights mounted to a high-quality bumper prevents problems such as excessive movement, a vibrating beam pattern, premature bulb failure and eventual fatiguing of the light bodies.Provisions for CB antennas are incorporated either into the wings or on the center pan of the bumper. Durable plugs are included for added aesthetics when antennas are not fitted.

Electric Winch Provision

Mounting a winch to a vehicle requires a properly supported structure that is designed to accommodate the stresses of winching. When using a snatch block to increase winching capacity, the forces are multiplied to several times the rated capacity of the winch. Most ARB Bumpers feature the option of fitting a winch, and all are designed and tested to endure and exceed such loads.

Split-Pan Design

ARB’s Engineers give careful consideration to maintaining sufficient airflow to the vehicle’s radiator. Utilizing a split-pan system, ARB’s Bumper design ensures the radiator receives a massive amount of airflow and actually further increases the strength of the bumper.

Polyurethane Buffers

Automotive-grade polyurethane buffers incorporated into the bumper for unique styling.

Air Bag Compatible Mounting System

With an air bag equipped vehicle, it is essential that the vehicle’s crush rate and air bag triggering is not altered when a bumper is installed. ARB assesses each vehicle’s frontal crush characteristics and replicates the crush rate into the design of each air bag compatible bumper and its mounting system. This achieves maximum possible vehicle and passenger protection without affecting the crash pulse.

Wing Design

The furthest most point from the chassis and often the point of impact in an animal strike, the wing area is by far the most vulnerable. ARB pioneered the multi-fold upswept and tapered wing design, which provides an enormous amount of strength and maintains an optimum approach angle.
