    Rovacraft Bullbars

    Has anyone seen the new arrivals on their website,

    What do you think of them?

    Does anyone have any pics of defenders with them on?

    Oh should add, 2 days 23hrs until I pick up my Defender..

    I saw one on display when I was in there the other day. They look very flash, and seem solid and well made.

    Wouldn't protect the guards from big roos though...

    Hi Ben
    You are right,wont protect from roos too well.No doubt they are ex UK where badgers and hedgehogs are the trespassers onto the roadway.
    I rekon they look great,I too would be concerned about the odd roo strike having hit a few and had many near misses.

    i saw both, one in the shop one in the Warehouse, excellent quality very dense, not at all pedestrian friendly as you would think, but hitting a roo at speed would do the job of stopping your rad smashing ...handy that, getting one in two weeks so i can get rid of the one that is a cut-down job courtesy of the requirements of the pits when i put it over, as for protecting the wings the way that the guys at the pits went on they do not want bar work on your wings guards so in effect they would be unprotected anyway

    That may be fine with roos but what if your car is a farm truck and from time to time is used to walk bulls from paddock to paddock?

    Fit two thick exposed copper aerials at 45 deg out ,either side off your front bumper with very good isolation and run high voltage threw them that will be the bulls face when he touches the aerials.

    Yep

    Bought one on saturday!

    Loving it so far! Looks to be great quality/build. The only problems while installing were the cir-clips on the recovery points being impossible to get on (groove to skinny for the cir-clip). Also, the holes through the bar for the recovery points had to be filed bigger as they were too small. All holes lined up perfectly, came with spacers (thick washers) for the lower chassis mounting points, only had to use 3 each side!
