    is there a purpose for those cables that run from the top of the brush guard to your roof rack? the only thing i can think of is stopping branches from wacking off the window, or drying the underwear after a water crossing... :banana:

    It's an undercover CB attenna. ?? guessing here... I think they put em on to add support for the front to back play when it's loaded. Whatever. They can hang pendants for their favorite sports teams from them too....

    yeah, it's just an extention of the brush guard idea.
    keeps the branches/limbs from hittin the windshield.

    a lot of "safari" outfitted vehicles have them (or maybe that's just the really really rich people's way of saying that we'll never have a rover as "cool" as their's is.)

    i do like the underwater cb antenna thing though, haha

    I just want to know what it is. Looks like a 40 got it on with an SUV or something. :slap: Whatever it is it looks kinda cool. 8)

    Itsa 70 series. Still make them for pretty much everywhere but the US :(. Damn cool trucks, pretty much today's 40 series with an equivalent troopy, pickup bed, and removable top SWB models. Cable lockers and PTO winches are options too.
    Thanks Mr T :(

    Here's a SWB 79 with the Coils up front. I think this one was done up in Germany.
