MAIN BAR LENGTH:
For 95% of vehicles the standard length main bar is fine.
Dual cab Utes with tubs/stylesides even with canopies are standard fit.
4WD Wagons with no spare tyre on the rear door are standard fit.
Tray back utes, wagons with a spare tyre on the rear door, 4×4’s with swing away spare tyres, jerry can holders will need a longer main bar.
Tray back Utes with Canopies, call to discuss.
In stock longer bar options are 50, 100, 150, 200 longer, custom lengths available also.
HOW TO WORK OUT:
On the standard length main bar your bikes inside foot peg is 230mm from the center of your hitch pin hole.
Run a straight edge down from the outside of your Tray, Spare Tyre etc and measure into the center pin hole.
Say it’s 300mm, take off 230 = 70 so you’ll need a 100 longer bar to give you 30mm clearance. Go the 150 longer as it has a pin hole at 100 also.
Any questions on fitment or anything about the product give me a call.
If you run a tape out 1250, 1500, 1800 from the top of your tow bar receiver to the ground you’ll see the loading angle.
1250 Ramp – On a standard height 4WD (receiver is 425-475 off the ground) your bike is easy to load.
1500 Ramp – If you have a 2″ lift or your receiver is 500-550 off the ground you’ll need this.
1800 Ramp – Higher lifts and bigger tyres will need this.
HIGH LIFT BARS
For 90% of people with 4×4’s the standard height works fine, fire trails, easy access 4WDing into camp sites etc no problem.
If you want to do the Desert, Cape, High Country or any other serious 4x4ing then obviously clearance is king.
It’s also stronger as it’s braced with 4mm Bluescope plate each side of joints (see High Lift Bar product for pics).
150 is 150 clear lift so the vertical tube is 200 long being as its 50mm section.
THREE BAR SET UPS
For 95% of people the single bar set is perfectly fine, we’ve sold over 1500 of them with zero issues, works great, still warranted for off road use.
However if you want to do serious off road adventures “The Desert, The Cape, The High Country” then this is for you.
You can still do any of these adventures with a single bar set up, three is just better for serious off road use.
In hardcore 4×4 situations when the vehicle is rocking violently the three bar set up is rock solid.
