Front bars for AU

one of my friends wants to change the front bar (std) on her AU ute.

i dont want to put an XR one on cos the ute isnt an XR, but really need to do something with it because it looks a bit ordinary at the moment

what aftermarket bars do you guys think look best?

ive only seen the C2R ones so any pics would be fantastic too!

cheers
dave

Re: Front bars for AU

XR bars belong only on XR's.

I think C2R are probably the best of the aftermarket ones.

Re: Front bars for AU

I agree Shane, but they do look the best.
The AUIII 250 Pursuit bar is the nicest.

Dont like that one Steve.

Re: Front bars for AU

thanks for the replys fellas!

does anyone know what sort of dollars the C2R ones are worth? not painted, as we are doing a custom job

phil- how come you have a spare one! i prefer the XR one, but im with casper about the XR fronts are for XRs, although by the time we are finished with this baby it will be a worthy addition to the XR family

Re: Front bars for AU

I love the XR bar with the big chunky Pursuit lip but my car isnt an XR so im not gonna get one. I like the TS kit because its the only chunky style kit (which i like) that you can get for the AU's.

Re: Front bars for AU

How about the bottom bit of a pursuit bar on a standard bar?

Re: Front bars for AU

can anyone photoshop that?!

i was wondering about the possibility of making a bar up from an XR one, but leaving out the round lights so that it wasnt a 'mock xr' but im not too keen on how much bloody work would be involved!!
