Could you fit a ECB/Bullbar without Suspension upgrades? Or would the stock suspension no handle the extra weight? I would assume a bullbar would weigh just under 100kg.

Do you need to cut the bumper to fit an ECB bull bar?

No cutting, just need to remove the lower bumper section. This was one of the reasons I replaced my ECB bar with a ARB bar as upon hitting a roo the bar pushed up into the top bumper and in turn the bumper pushed up and did more damage to lights and other panels

The ARB looks so much better. The Uneek bar looks good too, single loop. But their all over $2.2k.

Looking at the fitting instructions of the ECB bullbar, it has integrated Recovery Points on the Mounting brackets. Those who have the ECB, how do you rate this recovery point over the Chiefs Front Recovery hooks.

I Already have the front recovery hooks, I guess this needs to go if I get an ECB Bull Bar.

Correct. Ive used both and the ECB bar recovery points work well. No issues - just get an equaliser strap as always.

Ok so I have got the ECB.

I have relocated the front factory parking sensors onto the ECB. I get a lot of false alerts, even when it rains....

On most occasions I need to be very close to the front vehicle for it to detect the car(ie at the lights).

I figure its due to the bar being so solid?

Does anyone else get these interference?
