A-BAR(bush, bull, brush, musher...)for D90

Looking for a non alcoholic A-Bar in good to great condition - black. Simple and clean. Plan to mount to lights.

Thanks,
Itch

Yeh, I know what you're talking about. You want the plain one that is in the middle only. I finally found a picture of one and since I can't find one to buy I was thinking of asking a friend who does mufflers to make one for me. It should be pretty simple. Just need the plate on the bottom to be made and welded with the holes so I can bolt them to the bumper mounts.

Dead on N1ck

They seem to be prevalent in the UK but haven't checked if any of those guys would ship over the pond.

I can't believe that no one has responded yet with suggestions on where to find these in the US or if anyone has tried making one themselves. Anyone???

If you make one, I would be sure to use something a good bit heavier gauge than exhaust pipe.

i have a local fabricator that I was thinking of making something like it -

he is

http://castlefab.net/contact.htm

I had him do a bunch of work on my trailer

he was going to do a a bar style for 200 and one around the lights for 300 - I was going to see if I could find something to have him modify but maybe if we got 2 he would cut us a deal

let me know

Jay

How big is that tube 3 or 4 inch? I can only do 2 1/2". Would take a pretty stout bender to do it right. Jonathan, how big of tube can you bend?

Used ones available on EBAY UK but does not say they will ship stateside and it probably would be more expensive then worth. Simmonites in the UK is pricing a few things for me including shipping their ABAR but won't know for a "fortnight" (2 weeks) as their shipper is on holiday.

I have a NIB A bar from LR, and is SS for the limitted '94s, but can easily be PC'd or painted- and never rust!! I also have the low light bar as well...

Just as an update, was able to purchase a new A Bar from Simmonites in the UK for under $200 with 1 week FEDEX shipping included. www.simmonites.com. Fast, courteous and reasonable.
