Re: Bullbars...

Thanks Benaldo.
Looks awesome. Did you notice the extra weight on the front end, and has your fuel economy suffered?

Cheers, Craig

We picked it up on Friday, so don't know fuel figures yet. I expect a minor change.
I can't notice any sag as yet. I already had CRDSTU front top out plates so the front end was 20mm higher to start with.
We had a wheel alignment at the same time as fitting the bar and the car steers straighter, & does not follow the road camber as much - a big improvement, probably nothing to do with the bull bar?

It gets a bit interesting....
I called the smash repairer who did the repairs including the new bull bar.... He apologised... In fact he forgot to have the wheel alignment done! ( Note to self....One should never assume the work was done)
This means the improved steering is solely due to the weight of the bull bar??!!
When they check it on Thursday I think it best to have it checked against the latest Jeep settings I saw published on another thread. I'll post again after the job is done - hope they don't restore the poor steering!
