Front Brush Bar Horizontals.....

Anyone have this brush bar or one like it?

http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/2525W.cfm

I am wondering if the horizontal fins over the lights will block any or much light coming from the headlights?

I have those on my 110. I don't think they affect the output of the lights much. I don't have any pics, sorry.

Check with your local inspection laws ... in NJ that would fail inspection.. they dont like bars over lights for some reason.

I have that exact bar on my 90. Real nice. Doesn't seem to effect the light out put at all. I have run it both with the bars and without. they just unbolt in three places on each side and it runs like the stock 110 bars, the ones without the headlight brush bars ( the thin ones in the middle). Either way you run it, doesn't seem to be a difference.

I put the one that Charles has on Janey, it came off my yellow truck before I put on the ARB. Its nice as far as brush guards go, with the swing-out function for the headlight grilles being convenient if you have to replace a light. It is "candy coated" with vinyl, and thats not my favorite material, but its still pretty decent.

At least in VA they didn't have an issue with them.

I have those. They dont block much light. They kind of make it tough to wash around the headlights, though. Incidentally, I have one of those brush bars in my garage from my old D... kind of tweaked though... but I'd sell it cheap.
