Looked at the Black Horse installation manual and saw the illustration of the clamp to a clamp setup. I agree, didn't look like a very durable connection.

Wondering if attaching such a bull bar would negatively impact its new car warranty?
So how are Jeepers mounting the LED Light bars?

Re: Show me your Modified KL

Ready to rock and roll

2015 Trailhawk with Goodyear Duratracs in 245/70r17 and 30mm lift all round giving approx 45mm improved ground clearance. Better pics will come in the daylight.

I just finished and after a drive around the block the front wheel centre to lip of the guard is 500mm front (860mm to ground) and 508mm rear (875mm to ground).

How long did it take for you to convince the cat to stay there while you took the pic?

Re: Show me your Modified KL

Made up a bracket that screws in with the front plate screws and extends under the bonnet to two bolts.

This is a test fit pic prior to painting.

Re: Show me your Modified KL

Made up a removeable front mounting tow bar thay hangs from the tow hooks and locks into the front edge of the bash plate. Due to the design of my garage and backyard and shed there is no way to reverse the van into the shed and cant drive it through then turn around, so I needed to push it through with the front of the vehicle for the much greater manouverability it gives.
