Wenslikheid / noodsaaklikheid van 'n bosbreker?

Wenslikheid / noodsaaklikheid van 'n bosbreker?

Postby Ds J » 30 Jan 2017 22:01

Hoe wenslik /noodsaaklik / slim is 'n bullbar/ bosbreker op 'n Patrol? Werk so-iets of is dit net 'n mooilyk-yuppie-ding?

Hier in ons geweste is daar baie donkies in die pad en koedoes is in die nag 'n probleem. Dit sal sekerlik ook help as 'n lastige kar my vrou probeer afdruk. En dis waarskynlik goedkoper om 'n pyp- en plaatkonstruksie te vervang of reg te buig as om 'n kar se neus oor te doen.

Volgende vrae: waar kry ons dit en wat kos hulle? Watter vorm is voldoende?

Summit 4x4 /bzt maak n mooi bullbar. Dink hulle is so omtrent 12k.
Ek dink burnco in die kaap is ook redelik billik met hulle pryse. Maar weet nie wat vra hulle tans nie.

A bullbar will help a little with a donkey (if they haven't already been stolen, killed, skinned and their skins exported to the China) or a Kudu, but only to get it to flip up and over onto the bonnet, windscreen and roof as it takes out their legs. Where it does help is ensuring a taxi doesn't cut in front of you.... and also minimizing the damage taken from a front impact ( within reason ). It certainly does enhance the look of a Patrol, and allows for various spot lights ( and a bit better protection of them) and allows for the installation of a winch.

"Nudge bars" wat buite om die tupperware kom, is useless. Behalwe as jy van die voorkoms hou. Maar geen praktiese doel nie. Mountings is swak, en verswak ook jou naderings hoek in hindernisse.

Wat Bulbars betref: Ja kan kies tussen die grootmaak bullbars (TJM, ARB) wat peperduur is maar wat kom met die bevestiging dat die airbags nog gaan werk.
Hulle het geld spandneer om dit op karre te toets, wat natuurlik tot groot uitgawes lei.

Persoonlik dinnk ek nie die airbag issue is so tegnies nie. Maw as dit reg gebou word behoort die airbags nog te werk.
Dan kan jy heelwat goedkoper gaan as jy dit wil custom bou.

Myne is custom, maar dit is nie almal se koppie tee nie.

For me the steel bumper has a perpose.
1. I found one that increases my approach angle quite a bit. It actually makes a huge difference in this are
2. When I do a trail and I see the turn is to sharp and my nose is going to touch a branch or small tree I do not back up and take another line.....I simply push through it :lol:
3. I also have those bars sitting over the headlamps. This helps me to see exactly where the corner of my bumper is and also exactly how close I am to anything in front of me. This helped me to finish 38th overall out of 180 entrants in the Jamboree challange last year :biggrin:
4. It looks cool :thumbup:

As jy donkies wil afweer, maak seker jy kry een met pype wat die ligte beskerm.

Ek dink koedoes spring gewoonlik, so mens moet maar in elk geval baie versigtig wees in die nag.
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.
