I'll take "What is Not Normal" for 200 Alex..

 

It should sit quite a bit further back towards the body. Not sure what's going on.. Maybe crush cans are on the bumper mounts when it wasn't supposed to have them originally? That would push the bumper out quite a bit if they were there..

I can try to slide it back further, this is where the bolt holes lined up. Unless there is a major difference between an 88 and a 90 since this was off an 88.

it looks like it was pulled back out into position, maybe after it was bent in..you know, minor bump and then "hey lets get a tree and a strap and pull it straight....ish"

So I looked at the bumper today, no room to move it back as the chassis mounts are in the way. It's as far back as it goes, the mounting holes line up and it says it fits Range Rover up to 1995.

I admit I'm not in love with ARB, but I'd expect a bit better than that. Who else has that bumper on an RRC? Jared maybe? We could use some comparison pics.

Worst case, I bet we can make it fit tighter with the right, ahem, persuasion.

It says it must not be fitted to airbag equipped vehicles. Is there a difference in the mounting points on airbag trucks?

Chad, 

 

I know on the DII we had an ARB and it came with these accordion style inserts that went between bumper and frame...so the bumper could compress in the accident.  With non Airbag, those are not there.

 

Mounting points were the same, just the crush can thingswas different.

OK, so let's get some pics of another ARB equipped RRC for comparison, or better yet set up a wrenching day where we can have both trucks in the same place at the same time and we'll figure out what's different and how to make it fit closer to the body.

Don,

 

Can I make a guess?  Early "gray market" trucks would have a European chassis.  I've already worked out that the back end is substantially different (both the 'noses' and the cross-bracing).  I would guess that the front of the U.S. model Classics has longer reinforced frame rails to pass U.S. crash test requirements (49 CFR Part 581), what used to be called the "5mph test".  My guess is that version of the ARB was for a Euro model chassis, thus when mounted on a U.S. chassis there is a gap.  Dan could probably verify this, as he has a few old LRs sitting around to compare ....

Ok, I missed something...is this gap on both sides or just one?  I guess I assumed the drivers side was different from the passenger side.

Mike,

 

No, we'd just use a Metropolitan Police (London's Police force) door key if that was the case ....

Well, that was what I was suggesting.....I thought this was a one sided issue.  Carlos has one on his RRC, and I am going by there in a bit to catch up..I'll take a pic.  BOTH sides..

Nope it's the same on both sides. I can't see a way to move it any further back. I don't mind the gap but it did look funny when I put it on so I asked the experts.
