Hi. Does anyone know if a ARB bull bar designed for the Legend 45 will fit a Legend 40? I have been offered one at an incredibly cheap price but don't want to strip my plastic bumper if it does not fit.

Best bet is to check with 4X4 Mega world. They supply the ARB range and will have all the experience to answer correctly.

You can also then ask them about how your suspension will handle the extra weight. With my old SFA I would need to add another leaf to the front set to handle the increased load.

There is a difference in the grill between pre- and post 2012 models.
Maybe they just have different inserts, bumper will fit, is only inserts around the lights which wont
