But it absorbed the impact and deformed and did not transfer the shock into the ladder frame. Not sure if an ally bulbar is be...

Re: BullBar..Is it really necessary for Overlanding

Also heavier and worse aerodynamics - Consumption worse. Also less power mass ratio - every bit counts when driving dunes. And the trandemark bullbars like ARB are super expensive. Around 25k for a new one on the facelift models. I consider it valuable in trail driving. Not only better approach ang...

If weight is your biggest concern, then if I remember correctly one of our Cape members had an Alu bulbar fitted. Better than standard and lighter than steel bull bar...
Sorry for the delayed response everyone.
