Couple of questions...


Anyone have one of these a-bars?

If so, how 'stout' is it? Does it have mounts at the top, like the LR3 one does? Also, will it fit with the extended grille? (Looks like it, just want to be 100%).

Second question. Do I have to remove the rivets and what's left of the old seal for Puma door seals to fit properly?

Thanks in advance.

Paul, you may just need to adjust your strike plate. It takes some work, but it isn't difficult.
