    Hi All,
    I am selling my ARB style bumper, reason is that I want to make a redesigned bumper with a few add-ons and slight dimension changes.
    Nothing wrong with with this one, very solid, just the first 'prototype' ;)
    It mounts on the std mountings, is powder coated black and weighs about 30kg if memory serves me correctly.
    There is a cut out for a winch roller under the number plate, but has no winch carrier.
    R4500

    Hi Jakkus,
    I may be wrong but my understanding of a airbag compliant bumper is that it does not change impact absorbing characteristics of the crumple zone , ie does not make the zone more hardy, and thus defeating the purpose of a crumple zone.
    A G has a very rigid chassis and as far as I know doesn't have any crumple zones. Generally the airbag accelerometer sensors are situated in the middle of the vehicle and are not actually affected by impact, rather sense a rapid deceleration or acceleration movement by the whole car, and then with the help of other factors and sensors deploy the relevant airbags.
    As I built the bumper myself I can not certify whether it would impact the performance of a airbag sensor.

    cheers Stu
