The lower crossbar has great placement for the lower lip of the van! Nice!
It was equal to the cost of the bar, but they did a nice job cutting the underbody shielding and whatnot. To me it was worth itThat looks surprisingly good with the lift kit and tires. Mind if I ask how much the install was on the nudge bar?
The last paragraph of the original post says that he takes lots of road trips and hopes it will help protect the front of the van from road critters and other debris that may be in the way.What will you use this for?
Partly for appearance. I would never intentionally push anything with this because of how its physically attached to the sub frame.Wondering what the functional purpose of this install is? To date, I have never had to use the front of any of my vehicles to "nudge" or push anything. Nor would I ever. The only practical use I have seen for these is on emergency service vehicles with some designed specifically for off-road use but all wrap the entire front and protect the hood.
As for front-end protection from road animals, in the photos, only the lower center is protected. The lower half of the front is 50% protected. Overall the complete front is only 25% protected. There is nothing to stop deer from going through the upper grille, hood, windscreen, headlamp assemblies, and fenders.
Oh rats, sorry, I see it now.The last paragraph of the original post says that he takes lots of road trips and hopes it will help protect the front of the van from road critters and other debris that may be in the way.
I have also been looking at ways to protect the bottom front of the van! But my problem is more curbs when I am in parking lots… 😂
