BULLBAR FOR BT50


im looking for a bullbar for our 2018 bt50, looking for suggestions as to which brand  looks best, and comes with inclusive extras such as tow hooks, antenna and light holes etc. ps-- the MAZDA bar looks good but to expensive we think.  any pics would be great.  STAY COVID SAFE EVERY-ONE,

I had ARB Steel on 2013 twin cab BT50 it vibrated almost all of the time, quite distracting. Now have poly Smart Bar on LC200 and quite a remarkable difference and around half the weight.

I have an East Coast Bars from QLD Heavy duty Aluminium fitted, but with the extended brackets instead, as did not want them to cut my Bumper, as all the others do, It sits out about 5 inches further, and helps a lot if you have a roo impact. Have had two big roo's impact at 90km, no damage and it was not pushed back. You can get steel as well, but my car is not rated to carry a steel bar. It did cost $2600 fitted, but it has already paid for itself, with those 2 roo's. It is my third alum. bar from same company for 3 different 4 wd's. You can buy them from any 4 WD accessaries place anywhere in Australia , I have been told, On their bars they have  a sticker , which says "ECB"

ill check ECB out as well, the spacer idea seems a good idea. $2600 is a bit more than i would like to pay but if winch compatable and no cutting of panels,ill have a look. THANKS. PS - ive looked at TJM and to me, looked pretty ordinary (didnt suit the shape of the BT50,and recovery hooks were an extra ...

after looking at most bars on the market that suited the BT50, ive gone for the OCAM bar which has the recovery hooks included in the price. now im selling the big yellow recovery hooks and gen mazda nudge bar that are currently attached., and looking for a suitable 12000lb winch. MY WIFE ISNT HAPPY,  HOPE COVID19 RESTRICTIONS END SOON in melbourne.
