That is a genuine land rover brush bar. Why don't you just take it off and throw it out before someone taps you and it dents your fenders.

If the feet are not too badly gone you could get it blasted and re-powdercoated for about $100-150.

Living in the Springs, you need to check out RockWare's brush guards. I can show you mine sometime if you buy the coffee.

If you choose to get yours repaired I recommend Pikes Peak Rover for the welding and S&S Coatings for the powdercoat.

I like the stock brush bar and would def consider getting yours back up to speed ( if its not too shot). I have seen them take some abuse and they hold up pretty well. BTW i like your steel wheels are they D130/1ton/NAS110 wheels or skinny steel wheels?

The originals don't guard a damn thing. Get something functional or go commando.

That stock unit is cosmetic only. No impact protection at all.

Damm, I try to keep a low profile. But with a D90 it is hard to do. Guess I will have to find a different parking place. On thet does not face Fountain.

Lol! I live and work on Pete and drive past your truck a couple times a week. Thought about leaving a Solihull Society card on your windscreen one day.

I'll comment on what i was talking about when I said "I have seen them take some abuse and they hold up pretty well" Years ago while offroad, I witnessed a Ford PU sideswipe the front of a friend's D90 with a stock brush bar. The PU's side was caved in and damage to the D90 was zero. Anyways..that was my experience with it protecting the front end of a D90. I am not trying to start a debate... just explaining what I meant...

Doug - thanks for getting back to me on the wheels, I looked closer and see they are wolfs.

Truth be told a rockware or SG bar will be bad news if you sustain any sizable impact. It will likely transfer too much energy to the chassis causing more costly damage. I use mine to hold a winch and to brace my vehicle against trees and rock when winching so there's a price to pay either way.

This one is available, but would need to be shipped from VA. No rust, but powder coat delaminating at the bottom of the mount on one side. Can take more pics if interested.

Here, we consider 130/110/NAS wheels as ANR1534, and Wolf wheels as ANR4583 which The Wizard has on his truck above. They are different.
