then they'll need to get it engineered. You cannot just remove swaybars legally.

Basically covered by:
"Modifications that require assessing and certification:
e. Modifications that produce no change to the vehicle’s ride height involving –
.. ii. changes to the suspension configuration
"

well you cannot do many things legally depends on your area. cannot put lift spacers from outback to legacy and all other things like tube bumpers. but who care it looks cool and wheels are very cool looking . and i would put that size too there with not much cutting and bending i would do it for my car no problems. but exaust is like too much i think. just exaust thing is not legal for roads at all

I'd love to get a legal tube bumper in Au on my foz. Not going to happen though.
I bent and welded up one for my '76 beetle back in the 80's. Looked hot. Looked odd with Cibie Super Oscars mounted on it but I do like excessive amounts of light at night.

Iím starting to think youíve got some inside info Duncan!

Looks mean. I donít like the exhaust setup, but thatís personal preference.

I love the bit about the tube bar for protection and extra clearance... then they mount the LED bar under it - with little detail of the further mods of a tube bar lower than this.

Cheers

i liked idea how they cut half bumper thats can be still ok on streets im still fine with mine but if i would hang some tubes bam i would get stopped i guess and asked questions so i allways thought more like invisiable version like that just hidden under plastic shelf of cutted bumper so its like not seen from outside but its there and it gives that protection you need. and as they added that light bar and second tube that approach angle got so much worse right away. imagine go into soft mud and all that light bar got under mud and stuff...all cables too. not ideal but its all for looks most. to look cool . those rally style lights on roof rack just cool but could get loud on wind on high speeds.

yeh - I was really surprised by that. Cut out some awesome clearance with the bumper then pop a LED bar under there! With all that (silly) lighting on the roof, its hardly necessary.


Still - its about the look, not the practicalities.

Shoulda mounted the LED bar in the cut bumper, not under it.

My guess is that it's being set up as a pre-runner for rally recon, perhaps something like Baja.
