ARB Sahara Style Bull Bar for 2011+ Dodge RAM 2500/3500
The tough and rugged appearance of the RAM 2500/3500, with its large front fascia, made the styling of these Modular Bull Bar kits a unique challenge.This new design features a large split center pan, formed wings, and a center upright assembly specifically designed to match and carry the truck’s styling.
Design and Development:
Very modern in styling yet distinctively ARB in heritage, this new Modular Bull Bar is truly innovative andutilizes a new modular design.
Three distinct configurations are available, allowing for customization to meet individual needs or preferences. Many considerations were included in the research and development process, but first andforemost the bar needed to retain the ARB core principles of quality, reliability and practicality. This new style of Modular Bull Bar is a direct response to the research and collaboration performed by ARB’s expert engineers. The result is a Modular Bull Bar that provides features for any Super Duty, no matter if it is adedicated hunting rig that takes off for the back country, a fleet truck, or a daily driver that must be ready for any adventure.
The tough and rugged appearance of the Ford Super Duty, with its large front fascia, made the styling ofthese Modular Bull Bar kits a unique challenge. This new design features a large split center pan, formed wings, and a center upright assembly specifically designed to match and carry the truck’s styling.
Each of the integrated features were also designed from the ground up as exemplified by the all newIntegrit™ textured black powder coat, the unique press formed fog light housings, and the ability to mount avariety of winches (up to a Warn 16.5ti) within the bumper.

- Press formed and styled upright cover straps.
Modular Design & Kit Information
By utilizing an innovative design, 3 distinct style options are available for the 2011+ 2237010RAM 2500/3500 platforms. Each kit represents a unique and distinctive style. With the wide range of demands put upon thesetrucks, no single Bull Bar style was going to work for every situation. Thus, ARB is proud to introduce aninnovative solution through the use of modular customization. Each kit represents a traditional ARB Bull Barstyle that has been created to specifically relate and tie into the Super Duty’s design.
Kit 2237010 - Full Deluxe Style Bull Bar (Type A)
Includes the full width lower bumper replacement, center upright hoop, and outer frames. This kit provides thehighest level of protection for the truck and occupants.
Kit 2237020 - Sahara Style Bull Bar (Type B)
This kit adds a center upright hoop to the full width bumper. This hoop provides additional protection aroundthe truck’s grille and critical components.
Kit 2237030 - Base Style Bull Bar (Type C)
This kit is a full width bumper replacement, without any uprights or outer frames. This kit provides a centerpan and two outer wing sections, giving the truck an extremely robust winch platform and important impactprotection.
Safety and Protection:
The flexibility of a modular design allows customers to choose among three configuration options to meet their individual needs, each of which is competitively priced. This system also allows vehicle owners to modify or upgrade the configuration, as their protection needs change.
While the bolt-on modular center upright hoop and wing system is a new direction for ARB, the engineering and development team conducted Finite Elemental Analysis (FEA) testing alongside extensive real world assessments to confirm that the system exceeds the demands that full-size truck owners’ demand of their vehicles. This system saves weight andallows for customizable protection levels while providing the strength and protection that ARB Bull Bars are known for.
With an air bag equipped vehicle it is essential that the vehicle’s crush rate and air bag triggering is not altered when a Bull Baris installed. To ensure compatibility, ARB assesses each vehicle’s frontal crush characteristics and replicates the crush rate into the design of each air bag compatible Bull Bar and its mounting system. This method enables engineers to achieve maximum possible vehicle and passenger protection without affecting the crash pulse. ARB has heavily invested in vehicle crash barrier tests to validate the performance and compliance of its air bag compatible bull bars, and as a consequence, our bars offer a fargreater level of protection than most standard brush guards and grille guards.
This center pan design features a unique reinforced and gusseted design to match the size of the vehilce and the large frame winch fitment options.
Large Frame Winch Fitment:
In preparation for any eventuality, this bumper systemprovides a winch mounting platform designed to accommodate the Warn Industries Heavy Weight winch series, through to the 16.5ti, while also having provisions for the Zeon 12. The included kit allows for the fitment ofeither a hawse or roller fairlead.
If no winch is to be installed, a reinforced steel screenand bracket can be fitted to achieve a clean, finished appearance.
Integrated Fog Lights:
Each center pan ships with a set of purpose-built 51W9006/H4B4 halogen fog lights (3500590). The new foglights are designed specifically for foggy and foul weather conditions. These lights have a hard coated polycarbonate lens along with an impact resistant housing. They are fully submersible and include an external gauze breather.
These lights are easily integrated into the truck’s factorywiring, allowing for operation through the original equipment switch.
Press formed surrounds are incorporated into the designand construction of the Bull Bar
Auxiliary Driving LIght Mounts:
These Modular Bull Bars feature laser cut holes in the top ofthe center pan for fitment of a range of compatible drivinglights such as ARB Intensity LED & IPF 968, 800 & 900 series lights.
Factory Tow Points:
The fitting of the ARB Modular Bull Bar does not affect thefactory tow points. The design of the Bull Bar utilizes thesedistinctive features of the Super Duty as both OE hooks areretained in the standard location and maintain the factorytow ratings.
Two antenna mounts are welded to the top tube of the outer hoops to allow fitment of UHF/AM radio and CB antennas.
Hi-Lift Jacking Points:
Each Modular Bull Bar comes standard with two reinforced Hi-Lift jacking points designed into the center pan.
Integrit Powder Coat:
Manufactured in Australia, this proprietary polymer blenddelivers incredible resistance to damage from sources such as road debris, surface abrasion, weathering, acid spotting,and off road usage. For improved corrosion resistanceproducts available with Integrit™ are now pre-treated with a zinch rich powder coat primer before coating. Utilizing ARB’s quality controlled pre-treatment process; the textured finish offers class leading protection, providing unparalleled corrosion resistance.
Integrit™ texture powder coated surfaces benefit from self-cleaning capabilities, with the formula incorporatinga synthetic PTFE wax for resistance against dirt and road grime. The coating is easily cleaned with a mild wash solution.
