Default MY15 SJ Forester - ECB Bars??

Hey,

Just wondering if anyone has any experience with the ECB Nudge or Bull Bars on the SJ Forester?

I was originally looking at the low loop nudge bar, but can get my hands on a full bullbar second hand for a good price.

I know there's the Subaxtreme gear, but I personally think their SJ Nudge bar is too narrow for the car, and I'd prefer not to cut into the plastic bumper to fit the offroad bullbar.

Any opinions would be good.

Cheers

If it is like the ECB bars for the SG & SH it will mount from underneath on some drop brackets.
The problem with that is it limits the approach angle which is already compromised.

Thanks, yeah I've seen the older underslung design on SH Foresters, for the SJ it looks like the mounts come straight through the front bumper. Minimising the reduction in approach angle.
