How much did they want for the alloy bar ???
Do you need it for a winch ? looks ?? serious off road ??

if you just want it for looks and dont intend on using a winch , get a alloy bar , they hurt less in a accident ( i know first hand experience ) if you need it for off road work , roos or winch straight to ARB . TJM sells a toyota copy for around $1000 in alloy . I have a second hand one ( looks new ) off a 2001 100 series you can have for $400 .00 Genuine Toyota bar Craigs hut 2003

Thanks Eric, I'll let you know about your bar. The dealer wants around 1400 for the original alloy bar.

No alloy bar is a winch bar , but you can purchase a cradle for your winch to bolt behind any alloy bar Craigs hut 2003

Hi Vic

Went through exactly this late 2002 and after looking closely at all the options I went the ARB way.

Did not think Toyota bar was anywhere near as good in terms of protection other than perhaps if you have a problem with airbags with a genuine Toyota bar then you may be better covered.

I had the ARB bar colour coded and it look a treat as it tones the bar into the car much more and does not have the visual impact that a black bar has. The colour coding is also proving quite practical - have not had to touch it up yet.

A potential plus also is that the ARB bar can also take a winch at a later date if required without any additional cost.

Cost for the ARB bar was comparable to the Toyota bar

Thanks David,

What model bar did you install? Is it powder coated, or painted? My TD is Pewter, so colour coding sounds like a good idea.

Thanks for the advice, it sure save a lot of foot work!

Regards,

Vic

Vic

From the sales invoice ARB Part No 3413050 - All up cost including colour coding $1508 (painting was $200)

Our TD is an Advantage model that came only in a light metallic blue that is not a standard cruiser colour.

There is a Pewter cruiser in my area with a colour coded ARB bar and that looks really good.

If you can send me your email address I can send some photos if you like
