So you found your way here;)

Whats wrong with what you got apart from it sucks:D
Do you still have the FRP ?

Your 73 is looking good;). Was it you looking to do a engine swap or was it another 73 series owner in the hills?

I think it looks ok. I know its can limit your entry angle but if you hit something big it has to bend some way back before its starts crumpling the expensive stuff;)
Have a look at everyone else's,they are all about the same;)


The one with the engine said his dad owned it and the 3F engine was fawked and using heaps of fuel.
He reckoned he could put a chev V8 and save lots of money:D
 
yeah but look how far it sticks out


abd tube bars look hot specialy with some sliders

Its the same as both my cruisers. I dont know how you could make something equally as strong without it looking like a farmers gate.
How about removing the tool/battery box and shortening the brackets.
If you dont want it ,Im sure you would have no problem selling a 70 series bullbar. Hardly any in the Quokka

I like the Powerdowns and now have them on both cruisers. They are identical to the Raw 4x4.
They have 3 settings and I can change all 4 in about 15 minutes but I leave them on soft all the time.
To change the settings undo the bottom bolt , compress them and turn to the required setting and yhen bolt it up.
They have a 41 mm bore.
The ones on my 73 are at least 4 yo now but are still doing their job
I got the new ones from APE suspension on Gnangarra rd Gnangarra,just past Bill's Machinery.
The cost was about $70-80 each.
Im sure you could get something better but at what cost?
Ive see a lot of the big names not living up to their reputations but these have seen some rough tracks and no breakys so far

Nice work Felipe. We have a bit of a suicidal kangaroo problem and if you dont cover the whole front,that is where the kangaroos will aim for :D

This is the Modded 70 series thread right? Am I the only one that cannot access that thread, I have tried for months to enter it, but can never get access. Is it blocked to me or what? I like looking at modded 70's, and am really disapointed I can't see them all.
Cheers,
