That leaves me with a question: am i better off without the bullbar?
Ok this is my firsr 4wd and it is only 4 weeks old (plus 98000km lol), but i live in perth, and apart from some beach driving and a few family weekend i dont see myself doing heaps of country kms.

I read a lot about people having issues with the arb bar (and bars in general)...

Save your money. Do you really need another 40kg on the front? You will need different shockies/springs. If you were travelling outback a lot then they could be beneficial.

I agree with Dicko. If you're not going bush a lot I wouldn't worry about a bar. Save the money and the weight.

This is about my NL ARB Bar....I feel the ARB deluxe Bar is weak as .. I had a slight bingle and that bar caused way more damage than if I didn't have a bar at all.. folded up really well and destroyed Guard, headlight, bonnet, ect..... Now I have an alloy Bar and with some extra plates welded on, I feel it's a lot stronger.... I showed ARB the twisted, bent Bar and all they could say was Wow that bent up didn't it... They wanted $1200 for a new one but I said No thanks.. May-be the later Model Bars are stronger.

I thought so!!

The only problem is how and where fit all the different accessories that normally "sit" on the bullbar, like led lights sand flags etc

Only issue is that cheap nudge bars for GEN 4's have dried up. Used to be able to get them for $200 on eBay.

That being said... If anyone has a spare =D
