Sits nice and high. Man that's a lot of bends. You must have been stuffing around for ages to get that all even and symmetrical. :thumb:

Been playing with a Jeep Commander rear bar and swingaways, its been slow progress working out what might look right, this is it so far, need to sculpt the bottom of the bar into the flares and infill between the top of the side bars and up to tail light height. Was originally going to trim the flares to match the bottom of the current side bars but the owner changed his mind so now I need to sculpt some sheetsteel in that matches the flares.

well here is mine! i got rid of the factory alloy toyota bar! so here is what i knocked up!i also Incorporated a bash plate in at as well.I also learnt after taking my truck through some tuff tracks i needed more protection to stop trees rubbing up against the body so much so added a couple bars on!
i just get so sick of seeing 80series looking the same so i went with something different! :D
