For off road use sell it (only good for going to TT's with hahahaha) and by a LC II and welcome to the forum.

Bullbar has to be ARB due to the airbags cannot use a LOCAL one..

It still can be used offroad. Maybe just not the hardcore trails. but then again, that depends how much you want to spend modding it.  :mrgreen:

True. ALB has stood to my abuse. But for modern cars with airbags you should ensure the bullbar is rated for airbags.

Yep, can be used offroad. Tyres and winch most important.  I dunno anyone who fitted ARB bullbar all appear to be local type.

The sump is a little low and some form of protection there would be well worth.........or end up with a big hole from a rough edged rock as I saw some poor owner had earlier this year.

It's not about expense its about the serious issue of AIRBAG triggering - LOCAL bars are not AIRBAG compliant tested. ARB are they spend MILLIONS doing research and have to pass before they can sell them.

Ask the local maker if they done airbag test or airbag certified.

I'm going to put a BAR on the ISUZU and it will be ARB for obvious reasons.

i recall it being ripped out at some point and reinforced at another. But i am probably wrong.... same would happen to ARB anyway.... right...

That was due to a weak mounting point and winch table.

winch plate is meant to be part of the bumper so is the proper mounting points for a specific vehicle. Since you had to add or modify the above mentioned due to its failure, that once again underlines quality of local made bars.
