Hello mate, give me a call tomorrow, I don't have your number.

The curved bars sweep up around the Jeep grille.

Cheers

Plenty of nice tube bars on this thread - great work fellows. I have wanted to make my own tube bar for a while now, i've done rear step and sliders but no bullbar cause someone told me they are not legal in QLD. Is that correct? I had thought of buying an old wrecked bar with the mounts and winch cradle intact and cutting and modifying it to my liking. Good idea or not?
Any info would be great - its for my 01 hilux

Hey mate, Here's my new one. It's a home made job. It took a bit of staring at it to work out how to get a nice shape. I reckon it came out pretty good.

Black Bull That is awesome! Love the fact that you included bash-plates (even if they were a pain) - I like the look of these bars but wonder how strong they are?? :confused: We deal with the living version of MacDonalds burgers on the road ... I'm not sure if these would stand up to that!?!

Tempted to invest in one of these ... need some safety, tho!
Cheers

I have just taken ownership of a new custom tube bar for my 60 series. I had it made by STRUTH of this forum. All I can say is WOW! This man does some very nice work. The attention to detail is awesome and the craftsmanship is spot on. I will of course put up some pics real soon but I am so pleased with the bar i had to tell someone besides STRUTH.

He built this without having my car there to use for measurements. All I did was supply him with the amount of body lift and a couple of pics from under the front end and he did the rest. Real talent there.

Thanks STRUTH!! :D
