What a difference in approach and departure angle,
I took the pic at the same location.
look at that stupid ARB bumper.

So that means I put a bull bar to protect my truck, but if I hit a dear my airbags pop off ?
Well screw that, I paid to get a heavy duty bumper for a reason.

It’s shakes like it’s attached with cardboard brackets, what kind of poor engendered bumper is that.

Weird comparison. A vehicle that came with 37s designed for hard use compared to a light duty truck. ARB is designed so you don't break all your teeth out in a head on collision. There are pros and cons to that. I like the pictures next to each other.

I understand what you mean, but you have to see to understand how bad it shakes and how much it sticks out.
of course I wasn’t comparing Hummers 90 degree approach angle to Tacoma, It was cool to see them at the same spot at different time of the day.

I personal don’t like any of the ARBs on any vehicles with airbags. The Tacoma one huge lol. Heard a lot about complaints of how it vibrates a lot. That’s partly arb but the Tacoma frame flex like no other lol.

I’m glad my arb on my 88 runner isn’t an issue. It solid mount

I had arb bumper on my 80 series cruiser, it was awesome.
But I guess we learned that airbag approved bumpers suck lol
It’s only approved because it’s been tested. Air bags don’t deploy based on crushing a sensor. It’s the g force reading/ sudden stop that makes them deploy so with any aftermarket bumpers. They will still deploy like normal. The biggest difference is the bumper won’t absorb the hit as well and more forces is passed into the passengers. I’m ok with this so I rather have a fixed hard mounted bumper than one that crumpled.

Just joined the forum and thought I'd start by sharing some photos of my 2012 FJ Cruiser. It's a never-ending project and in 90k miles of owning it I'm still figuring out better ways to set up it up! Here are some photos from the California's Mojave trail. Will be headed to the Sierras at the end of the month and can't wait.
