All of the 6th gens have the chassis mounting points for an ARB, although not all of them have the right front or rear control arms for the drop links to connect to.
If you have an ARB already then you can uprade to a larger diameter bar as you'll already have the mounting points on the chassis and control arms.
To increase the diameter of the front ARB you will need the relevant D brackets which bolt the bar to the chassis and you will also need the D bracket bushes. The droplinks are the same.
If you haven't got a front ARB then its very likely your front control arms won't have the mounting points for the dropliks so you'd need new control arms as well as the above.
To add an ARB to the rear then you need to consider what size you are going up to. You can fit a EK4 or EM1 bar to the rear by getting the D brackets, bushes and drop links. You may need to get new rear LCA's so the drop links can be attached.
If you wish to install a rear ARB over 15mm, from the EK9 for example, then you will need a subframe brace as the larger diameter bar can cause subframe tear which is very expensive to fix.
