Defender brush bar / bumper (winch-capable)

Hi, I have a VERY heavy duty Australian-made TJM bumper/brush bar for a Defender. It bolts right in place in lieu of the factory bumper. It is brand new (dust only - - been in storage). Only fitted to a vehicle to test and then never used (I decided to go with a non-winch alternative). As you can see from the pics below, it has a winch cut-out, as well as light tabs and an antenna mounting tab. This is no lightweight alternative - - it is a serious piece of steel. Pickup in Boston, MA area only. Will not ship due to size and weight. $500.

Here are some pics:

Too ugly-ass for anyone? Price not right? I don't recall what I paid for this (I think they are pretty expensive...thing is built like an Aussie tank . . . I mean, you can tell they design their guards for more than "brush" over there - - they must run into kangaroos or something!), but if any of you great folks on here think it's unrealistically priced or not something that anyone's likely to want, please chime in!

Thanks,
Mark

That looks like the same bumper mounted on the 110 in the "Outback" Restaurant Commercial...the 110 splashing through the water.

You might want to give it a little more than 5 hours before soliciting responses.

Unless you are selling a Rockware or a Safarigard bumper, I don't think you'll see particularly rapid demand.

Nice looking bumper, though!

Fair enough! And thanks for the input. If no interest, back in the shed it goes for another long slumber I guess!

I'm still kicking myself for not logging on early this morning before being in your backyard!

I have a freind that has a S3 109 and he was wondering if this bullbar would fit.
(yeah, I know, I don't think it would look right on a Series truck either, but I'm just relaying the question).

Hi, Jackie. I have no idea - - can you tell from the mounting points shown in the pictures? I thought (but I could be wrong!) that the front horns on a Series truck are spaced the same as on a Defender. If so, then there may be a chance that this thing mounts up.

Sounding like a stuck record, this thing is BEEFY. I'm not entirely sure how it'd look hanging off the front end of a Series! But if it DID fit, let me tell you, the front end of that truck would be well protected, and would probably do damage to an armored car if ever an accident!

Your guy (or you!) are certainly welcome to come check it out in person if you're ever back in the area.

Thanks,
-Mark

To fit on a series, you may have to trim the bottom mount a bit to fit between the spring hangers, but the holes are in the same space.

You might have to use the ARB extensions

I THINK that I originally test-fitted it to a 110 with A/C and it fit fine, just more "bar" than I wanted or needed. My memory is not that great anymore, so if you wanted more pictures in order to determine or wanted to come up and check it out, let me know.

I don't know what the "ARB extensions" are or what they look like. My recollection is that it fit on a 110 without any mods - - but again, it's been awhile, so I could be wrong.

There is a website for this company, and it shows some bars that look almost identical to this one . . . maybe it would give more info?

I will have to swing up and take a look at it. I have not completely torn apart the defender so it is still roadworthy. It looks to be about a 2 hour trip.

No problem, just let me know when you might like to see it. Coventry to Westborough is 2 hours? That can't be right - - Providence is less than an hour away (495 to 95). We're right at the intersection of 495 and 90 (aka the Mass Pike).

I was going to take RT-116 up. Depending on traffic I could take the highways. A 2.5 gas engine with a 1.2 ratio t-case can take a bit to get to highway speeds. That might be better once the 300TDI swap is done.

Ah, that explains it . . . a nice leisurely ride!

No problem . . . if you want to come take a look at it, just let me know. Or if I can take more pictures of it for you to help visualize it in more detail before you take a run up here, I can do that too (once I can find some time to dig it back out of the shed on a sunny day).

Bump. Any interest / offers before it gets buried for another several years?

Well, we could look into it, I guess. This thing is HEAVY and I'm not sure how I'd package it up . . . .

Could you send a pic shooting downward at the mounting flanges with a ruler? My master or slave clutch cylinder went out on me, so it might be a week until I can head up with the 110. I should be able to tell from the dimensions if it will work with the pictures.
