Bull bars

So I am watching an episode of Wheeler dealers right now which features the Suzuki SJ410 and clocked its bull bars, they look very very similar to panda bullbars, as in VERY similar. Does anyone know if they are close in size?? Has anyone heard of using these for a panda?

Re: Bull bars

Look like cut and weld job as the SJ mounting points bolts down to SJ frame.

Re: Bull bars

Keep your eye out for Bedford Rascal/Suzuki Carry bars, they are much better size wise and mount quite similarly :thumbup:

Re: Bull bars

Hi there

I know your original post was a while back, but out of interest did you ever try fitting the bull bars from the suzuki? I have literally just bought a set for an sj410 and wondered if you had any warnings, ideas or tips?

Thanks,

Re: Bull bars

my favourite bull bars are the ones that wrap around the front. i know someone has a set on here but i cant remember who.

i still say the best bull bars, are the ones you fix up yourself. take the standard sisley bar, then add to it.

add a top bar, then add a few spot light mounts.. then maybe an aerial mounting point.. yeah...

Re: Bull bars

Yes. Can't say I was particularly fond of them and the mounting wasn't too good:
