Rear Bar alternatives

Today i asked my cousin if he could do a photshop of my ute with quad pipes and also another one with the lower bit in a grey colour like the gt's but he got excited and relocated the number plate aswell. Id like to hear your thoughts on some of these as i would like to put them to work one day, especially on the quads and the grey section.

Re: Rear Bar alternatives

ok here goes. 1) leave the number plate where it is (but it does look OK in the middle and would be different). 2) do they grey insert as it looks good. 3) quad pipes look good BUT they need to be moved further out towards the side of the car more for that extra tuff look.
thats my thoughts.

Re: Rear Bar alternatives

looks pretty tuff mate! go the third one! just remember the little hole on the fight of the number plate is for the spare wheel..

my front bar of my ute is pretty much hammered so im looking at the C2R XR style.. i wonder if they'll make ute rear bars!

im not too sure about the quad pipes.. they look too close to me, i wish they more towards the sides of the car.

Re: Rear Bar alternatives

Im pretty keen on leaving the plate where it is.

I agree teza that they're too close but the idea is to only remould another hole and keeping the original one there or else you have to do the whole lot and thats going to cost more.

I like the DJR front bar but you cant buy them you can only buy the c2r front bumper corners and they just dont do it for me. I dont think they make rear bars for the ute as i just bought thr latest ute magazine with the djr ute and they havnt even chnged the side skirts only the front bar and c2r make these kits so it doesnt look promising, thats why i thought of the idea of the grey insert.

Re: Rear Bar alternatives

what would be even better than a grey insert, is a carbon fibre insert

oh and the reason the pipes arent further out towards the sides is because of where the leaf springs a situated

There was another thread today saying you can get the Full DJR front but instead of being one piece its in 3 pieces... The APS Phase 4 at the APS day also had the full bumper.

Re: Rear Bar alternatives

Carbon fibre sounds good, might get the photoshop boys onto it.

Whats the third piece on the DJR kit, is it the centre piece?? C2R only sells the winglets.

Re: Rear Bar alternatives
