I've seen one made with a plate ofaluminium welded under it - then the plate wascutto allow the air filter to fit. This effictively makesit a T beam, and hence much much stronger.Did have a pic of this, but I can't find it anymore...


Could always make a stainless steel one?

just go to a pplace where they can do it, and ask? Its so small they will proberly do it for free - and maybe even give you the extra parts as well.


Take you truck, everyone who sees them loves them and will likely help straight off

Wow man that looks like it should take a pounding... but still bent. Looks like if the reinforcing just went a bit further down it might have survived.

Someone in Germany? makes them.Sometimes they can befound on ebay. None of the smaller ones are listed at the moment and the craftsman tells me he is very busy. Thats why I havn't got mine ordone a review yet...


Anyway just keep a watch out for frieslandskipper on ebay. I'm sure he will put up a few more when things die down for him... Could always shoot an email and ask.


Hope this helps.

i wouldnt think they would be hard to make. just get a 8mm hollow pipe
squash the ends drill holes and nut and bolt it to the body. well if im
wrong just point it out

drill a hole.. but then u need to make the mounts for it... easy.. 2
holes in the rollbar.. and a 2 nuts and bolts.. and im not sure about
the back??.. where does it fit
