    Is anyone aware of something like this for the LR4? I'd love a more integrated and streamlined steel bumper.

    I'm not aware of any. They look good on the 4 runners, but obviously don't protect you as well from animal strikes or sliding into trees.

    I'm loving my ARB Summit bar. (Works for 2010+ LR4 despite what ARB says)

    If I don't get persuaded into getting a Defender, I will be putting on the ARB Summit bar next year after body color matching it to Fuji White.

    White could look very cool, but I already had so many black accents that I just went with the storm trooper look. I've seen others with similar color schemes only with the black wheel arches and it looks good too.

    Thanks all. I'll probably end up with the ARB Summit Bar. I really like the look of the front-end and those Warn-style bumpers retain a lot of the OEM look while providing a little protection. Given it'll probably cost me as much as Summit Bar to get one fab'd up, I'll probably end up going down that route.

    Yeah, it's pretty sweet. The only thing I'd prefer is if the factory center bar was steel rather than retaining the factory plastic.

    the prospeed option looks decent for a winch, but it looks significantly weaker in terms of structure for front end protection. But depending on your goals, might be great. Certainly less weight, but I hardly noticed a difference when I added my whole ARB Summit setup. The winch is damn near a third of the weight addition on its own.
