Turn signals are interesting-
I have been toying w/ the idea of putting one of these guys together but always seem to have a full plate-
very interested in how you hooked it in- is it mounted via the bumper mount bolt holes, er anywhere else??
an idea would be a bumper w/ mounts that go in and actually serves as part of the lift blocks for the engine crossmember.. Mr Whitrock and Mt Chrysler both I think made that point to me... anyhows, good job!

Big question[drum roll]..... How much does it weigh??

It is arownd 35lbs, and it uses the stock holes in the sides of the body to mount it. I could duplicate it for arownd $70, and 2 days of work. And it's VERY stout! It takes my winch in the rcever, and never moves at all when I'm pulling.

Here's a real bar for a EA82 - full bumper replacement.
Of interest in the background is the Walkabout Creek Hotel at Mackinlay in Western Queensland, used for that Dundee movie.

The bar that Tony made looks great, and its real funtional. Where is the reciever hitch on your roo bar? Where is your winch mount?
I would take Soobme's bar over your roo bar anyday.

EJ all the way!

By the way - I like those bars more than the next guy, but he wasn't saying "LOOK LOOK MY BUMPER IS BETTER" He made it from raw materials for (i've priced this out) at most 1/10th the cost of that bar. I respect him for it, I still think it looks cool - you have the right to your own opinion though, just stating mine...

Of course, Camo had to go one better
I've never had an inkling to use a receiver hitch on the front. That would admit that you might need to be towed someday.

Sorry Soobme, but despite all those rave reviews, I'm not really impressed. Way too home-made.
If you had made yours Clint, I would say I was impressed. Nice job Tony, I've always thought those huge roo bars on the AU cars looked rediculous and way too huge.
Nice to meet you btw.

Maybe something could be rigged up to go into the hitch mounts for lights, like a bar of them, and have them abel to disconnect, like trailer lights somehow...? I dunno, just rambling i guess.
Still, I think it looks awesome! So does your rig, with the lift and everything! Good luck with it.
