I know they were made by Mantec for the event but I've never seen for sale. I like the style, use of stock bumper, and the winch mount. Are these essentially non-existent now?

If you get a group order they will make a run of them. I asked when I was stationed in the UK. Don't remember total size order required. They aren't cheap.

I know where one is, but I don't know if its for sale. How much are you willing to spend to have one?

Depends on condition and if it includes the winch mount. Maybe $300. I'm sure shipping will suck.

They will run you well above $300 no matter what a used ARB costs.

Can you find a previous sale of one of the CT setups for reference? ARB's are very plentiful...

I've no idea what they're worth and it depends on what it includes and in what condition. I do know a brush guard isn't as big or heavy as an aftermarket bumper though.

You could fab a Mantec lookalike without too much trouble or cost.

They come up pretty regularly in the for sale section of most Land Rover forums.

I've been looking and nada zip nothing so far. Gonna keep looking or just grab a TR front bumper. Only issue with the TR bumper is you'd completely loose the front side marker lights. Would be sweet to modify the turn signals to run a 2 element bulb, but I guess the easier fix is just 2 small 3/4 orange LED's drilled into the sides of the TR (if there is enough room). I like the ARB because I know their quality, and it has parking lights built in.

Nope, not very desirable.

Or very desirable...

Either it's worth a lot because no one has them or it's worth nothing because no one has them. On dweb it's the second part.

I believe the D90 lights can be swapped in to run blinker and running light in the D1 signal housing.
And ARB "quality" ain't all that. The Tactical Rovers bumper is far more stout and everything looks super clean about them including the lines and welds.

It's worth more because its either actual camel trophy gear or reproduction. Either way, it's like amber dash lights for Hondas being JDM. I'd they were cheap and common every "cookie cutter" disco build would have one on it for "the look". Even if they were available relatively frequently, like one every two months, they would probably sell on dweb for $700 a pop just so people could have the look and street cred feeling they get like owning a Defender.

I thought I saw something like this on one of the other boards. It likely would have been LRO or D90. Can't remember how recent the post was, but I did run across it in the past month and I was not searching, so it may have been recent.

All the ARB's I've owned had excellent fit/finish with zero issues. I did hate how small the Shackle mounts were on my TJ/LJ ARB bumper, but they never bent or failed. Warn bumpers (on Jeeps) were $$$$$$$ and the powdercoat blew off in 4 months..... I have no doubt the TR Bumper is awesome (that's why I'm thinking about it), but the light issue was a concern with yearly state inspections. Will have to look into the D90 light bulb mounts. Thanks for the heads up on that!!

I have a custom frame mounted winch bracket that I bought from Tom R on LRforum if you're interested. Not looking to get much for it.
I was set to use it but fell into a killer deal on a TR front bumper locally.

A year late, but did you ever build it? Scored a husky 10 so spent the last week going through all my old pics of the measurements and think I have a close enough model. Hope to send it to the plasma table this week. Just need to figure out the skid plate assembly, but that can wait.
