Thanks Tinus, judging by the looks of your Trolls, then replacement bumper doesn't spoil the lines of the vehicle at all.

There is a fine line between practical and looks ...we do trails overlanding and use the patrol for the boat. ...if you have used a winch a lot you would understand that sometimes you need to get to the drum ....also the steel pipes around light helps with keeping branches and game of the car sometimes. .. :rolling:
I will try and post a pic of the g tec one that looks great to me
If it fits into all purpose I am not sure :thumbup:

The Silver Patrol in Tinus' post above was built by maniac4x4 in Montague Gardens

I'm like a kid at Christams time. I get to pick up my Patrol this Friday and the excitement is getting to me.
I will get it home and then take a slow look around at the different options. My order of importance will be as follows when it comes to accessories:
1) Bullbar, incorporating winch & front tow ball
2) Dual battery system
3) Extented rear tow hitch so the boat's jockey wheel doesn't interfere with the spare wheel.


I see Iron Man also have the Protector Series Bullbars which looks like this.....

My front bumper is a chinese copy of the ARB bumper.
A guy here in Centurion sells them. Not the quality of the ARB, but it was a fraction of the price, and I had it powder coated to the colour on teh vehicle.
Look at the website: http://summit4x4.co.za/
