Heya ll, well after getting severely bogged on sunday and spending a considerable amount of time winching snatching etc the bullbar decided to let go on the passenger side, ripping the side support from the chassis.

Looks like i need to make another bulllbar or repair the one on it but upgrade the mounts, recovery points etc.

Does anyone have any photos or design they would like to share, just need somewhere to mount spotlights, LED lightbar(this could be moved i guess) and a UHF aerial.

Cheers

There was an upgrade mentioned to the bullbar mounting points in another post a couple of weeks ago, I had a look and 374 already had the upgraded (stronger) bullbar mounts when comparing the pics.

I saw that, but it's a bit late now unfortunately, need to decide whether to try and repair and strengthen the current one or make a completely new one, different to the rest.

I fitted N T bull bar to 346. Bits available from Alan at OKA Parts Australia.

Thanks for that outyonda.

I think i would rather go down the road of a bumper to begin with and build from there, anyone know if they are available or have one for sale, even a bullbar with damaged hoops.
Mine is too far gone i think, i can see many crack and stressed areas, as well as the drivers side is about 2 inches lower than it should be, a big job to try and straighten it. I took some pics today but haven't got them off the camera yet.

The N T is 3 peices, Alan has the laser cut long mount chassi bits, you need to make a mounting bracket for then bolt bumper on then bull bar . X T & L T bumper bull bar & mount combo were all welded together. N T are bolted, the tricky bit is the chassi mount, that is not an OKA part. With the OKA cutouts, you have to make it, cheers Brett

Bringing another old thread back up.

My new bullbar will be getting built in the next few weeks and i'm still after a design or ideas.

I'm thinking along the lines of this
www.allpar.com/photos/concept-cars/jeep/...2/jeep-mighty-fc.jpg

Making sure i have hte following -
Strong mountings
Strong winch mounting, it'll be housing a 16500lbs Warn winch
2 x strong recovery points(thinking of hummer type or eyelets that go the through the bar and not welded just on the front.
Jacking points
It will also have 2 x Lightforce XGT HID's and a 22 inch LED lightbar
2 x aerial tabs
Steps (no idea what design)

Any ideas or suggestions?

It will be powdercoated black too.

Moose, your link didn't work for me, I assume you are referring to this vehicle ?

What does he have on the shelf? OKA bars or Jeep bars, as the Jepp FC is a concept vehicle only and probably wouldn't fit.

Thanks

he has the jeep bars like the one on the F C

with gas axe & welder, everything fit's !!

It would be easier to get a NT bumper from Alan & make your own nudge bar.
look at the photo of my LT on this post, you can bolt on whatever you want !
