new ARB bumper width?

is the new ARB rear bumper a full width? it doesnt look as wide as a full width but its not a stubby. Hard to tell from one pic and with the flares.

It is full width. I have been thinking about getting that bumper but have not committed as I really want a stubby. It is 130 lbs so it is one of the lighter ones and it offers a lot like swing out with the door and jack points. Seems like a nice bumper and I like that it does not go forward on the jeep to far. You could run flat fenders without moding the bumper. Check out ARB on facebook to get more pics.

I like it. It's a full width but not as wide as the stock bumper and no tire rubbing due to its forward length. Looks like a nice set up

This is what I was thinking... I kind of wish it was a little more narrow or stubby like but it is nice how it comes forward but not past the start of the flare. Leaves all the options to chop or just use flat fenders.

So when you get one let me know if you need help with the install LOL I am debating on this and waiting to see if Nemesis is going to come out with something...
Edit: really getting the itch for a new rear bumper but I have only had the 2012 for a week and a half... I will try to spend a little more time looking!

Does anyone on here have this bumper yet? Curious to know what your thoughts are? How was the install, does it rattle and work well with the door?
