Hi again yall, does anyone have a link to a page for a front push bar and/or roll bar for a 1979 Brat... Or a good diagram of one that I can build. I will have em anyways. I don't want a full size front bumper (full width, uh-uh), but one that sticks out in the middle of the front

Also lookin for a roll bar for same year, that will go above cab for headroom in jump seats. I don't like the mushroom style though. Anyone that can help or send me a pic I would appreciate it

This pic is of an "A" bar for a EA-81 that I used as a model for the one I built for my EA-82. Mine is a total custom job as I had some front end damage that pushed the lower radiator support around. Had to "eyeball" everything but it came out all right. Building it yourself give you lots of freedom. I built in a beefy skidplate as well. Good luck!

Here's a couple pics from the brochures in the gallery. The first one has a Brat with a front winch bumper next to a wagon with an "A" style pushbar on it. The next pic has the one of the Brat roll bar with the jumpseats attached to it. Hopes this helps

Russ, how do you shave bumpers? My brat hnas a bunch of body holes that are huge in front. Rear wouldn't be too hard

I'm confuzzled, cuz I wanna be able to off-road, but want good mileage for my travelling. I will probably go for a bit more off-roar rig look, because this'll be my fishing rig. lol, I've wanted one forever. Thanks man, ur a lifesaver. When I get back in school I will start on my front A bar and roll bar, maybe post a few pics.

Later Soobies, James

Hey James, glad that I could help you. As for the shaved bumpers, I pulled the bumpers out of the car (mounts and all) and then I welded some sheetmetal over the holes, ground down the welds so it was flush and vola, done:D If ya need anymore help, lemme know. I just put EA81 front suspension under the front of my wagon and the parts are so much cheaper and parts are a lot more avalible
