Australia 2011 Freelander 2 TD4 S Manual Santorini Black
Freelander 2 Nudge Bar

Hi all

I have spoken to East Coast Bullbars www.ecb.com.au about manufacturing a nudge bar for the Freelander 2. They have informed me that they would need to enough genuine interest to make it viable. I know that they will make a quality product as I have used their bars on many of my other vehicles that is why I am pushing for them to manufacture a Freelander 2 nudge bar. Please submit your interest by voting Yes the more the better.

A big YES from me, I think there is plenty of Freelander 2's on the road now to justify.

Nudge Bars would be great in UK as Shopping Trolley protectors, push starting mobility scooters, wheelie bin movers Ohh the list is endless... Whistle Whistle Thumbs Up Thumbs Up Wales

Agreed.

Hit a kangaroo once a few years ago when driving out there. Only time I have driven in Australia, and I hit a bloody kangaroo. Rolling Eyes

Rental car was destroyed, and I was very lucky not to have been hurt - fortunately the left side of the car took most of the impact.

All in all, it was the start of a pretty disappointing day - both for me and the kangaroo.

Actually choccymonster it's my experience that you don't hit Kangaroos .....they hit you, the blighters. Most of them around dusk seem to have strong suicidal tendencies. Very glad you weren't hurt though.

I've hit a pheasant on my mountain bike before now - it was very tasty Laughing

I should add: I'd be interested, but not in a nudge bar (which offers little in the way of protection).

If ecb are going to finally remove their digits from their posteriors and make a full bar (like there are for the much less capable Craptiva and Territory), then yes, I'd be very interested.

Just joined this forum and found this post re nudge bar. I would like one for wife's Freelander mainly so I can fit some driving lights. There seems to be no other way to do it. Main beam is not that good especially in the country.

Jools.

A Bushranger X Bar will hold driving lights and a uhf aerial on an FL2. I have mine mounted where the number plate is but I haven't installed any lights or aerial yet Very Happy
