I would of put the ARB on with stock suspension not knowing any better but after 1/2 mile on the road I would turn around and start looking foe aftermarket suspension. IMO stock suspension and ARB don't mix..

Not to add insult to injury here, but if you are actually gonna wheel that good looking X of yours, do yourself a favor, and lose the factory side steps. One very minor hit and those things fold like a beer can. They're great to stand on, but not much else. Sliders for the win , or nothing at all.

Not preaching, just passing on my own hard won lessons.

Everything happens for a reason .... Sometimes the reason is that you're stupid and make bad decisions.

Ouch, I have to give you credit for that level of dedication to pull him out haha. I wonder if that log maybe saved you, if that water was deep enough it would have caused problems much more expensive than a new bumper!

Besides the above (very valid) suggestions, I'm gonna have to put a plug in for MaxGear Sliders. You can contact him at [email protected] for a price list and photos.
