Hi, Have new 110 and need advise on type of BB to get. Not worried about a winch as I do not want to put myself in situation that may require it (will be travelling with others and have snatches). But want to have aerial mounts and sand flag mounts. I want to protect from roos etc... when outback (Oodnadatta, Birdsville etc). I also worry about the extra weight that steel involves. Are alloy bars an option or will they just bend and create front damage?

Does any one have a defender and did get a BB, or some advise on where to get a BB?

Thanks Brad

I have an ARB bar on the 130, and a nudge bar on the 110, both steel. If you are in Sydney speak to Bruce Davis Performance Landys...

Good luck...

I've got an ARB commercial bar on my 110 and it is very heavy but should give max protection against animal strike.
The main difference between that and the "deluxe" style is there is no provision for fancy wank lights as beloved by ute drivers!
May need stiffer springs on the front if fitting a winch as well but it seems OK without at the mo.

PS. For all questions re LR, try aulro.com as well.

The time to add a bullbar is when your insurance company offers you a discount for doing so.
Until then, save your money I reckon.

Brad, I've not had a (crowd control) bar on my D2. Enormous weight saving. Better fuel consumption. Had to find alternative places for aerials (back of vehicle and roof where they are less prone to damage) and lights. No issues with roos _ either I've been very lucky for 20 years, or my strategies for avoiding them are working.
Consider saving yourself $1300 and try sans bar for a while.

Dear Bradley,
If you do fit a bull bar could you please consider your travelling companions and have it manufactured from stainless steel with a little tap on the front, then fill it with scotch, so that those of us who enjoy a little tipple may sample your bull bar.

Cheers for now see you on the track...
