    New Nerf Bars and Pushbars soon to be available

    Ive been talking to a major manufacturer about making us Nerfbars and Pushbars or maybe a Pre-runner
    style front bar for our VXs.
    They mostly us 3" round tubing. At the moment they offer about 3 or 4 styles with I think 3 finishes
    (not including raw) for anyone wanting to maybe paint of powdercoat their own.
    Black / chrome and a bedliner type rough black material w/ an UV protectant. They will be available
    in their finishes as well as raw. That way if you can finish them in your own way if wanted.
    Also, we need to agree on a style. They can be traditional style OR we can design our own, and by
    that I mean we can make the curves coming out from the body and back in to our liking. We can also
    figure out how far we want them to stick out from the body too. The lengths will all be pretty much
    the same Im thinking due to the attachments at the body mounts under the truck. (side bars)
    I think we are only going to be able to do 1 design or style ..but the finishes will have options. I already
    have a design in mind and we are going to try and do a prototype next week for the side bars. In which
    then Ill post some pics for review and see what people like or not like. IF you have any of your own idea
    about the side bars, feel free to draw up a design and or submit your pics of what you would like to see.
    Once we get a design the majority likes, Ill start having them made.

    Same for the front pushbars and for that I have maybe1 or 2 ideas, but again feel free to submit pics of
    what you are interested in .We can do the main bar in 3" at the time or smaller Same thing for the final
    finishes too.

    Im attaching some pics of the style side bars available finishes and all.
    Std 3" and with filler plates or steps if you will in a few materials.

    Not sure about pricing yet but our stuff will be made specifically for our Vehicross's and will all be bolt on
    no welding required and carry a warranty. This is big for our community !!

    later today and put them in my post.

    When I get a prototype side bar mocked up next to my Vehicross next week
    Ill add those pics too.

    Im excited to see what you guys draw up! Ive been looking for some extra add ons for my VX, have you ever seen the JDM (not a push bar, more of a light rack add on), its kinda lower profile and smaller, it sits right under the grill. I think something like that would be awesome

    Click on "Gallery" (to the right of "Forums"). Notice "Upload Photos" link on the second line. Try that. After uploading photo, you'll probably have to cut/paste link over to a thread.

    we can buy these premade and just maybe make correct brackets to bolt them to our VXs correctly
    is one option...

    I have considered a full plate bumper and modifying the mounts. I recently made my own winch mount that hides a winch behind the cladding. The problem is cost. Full bumpers aren’t cheap.

    Relative term. Expensive for a plate bumper? $1,000+. Tube bumper? $500. Bull bar? $200.

    no doubt, but I feel like most of us VX owners are use to paying a little more for
    things for our trucks by now because of the scarceness of off the shelf parts out
    there for them. Im hoping we will be able to supply those wanting some of these things
    with affordable pricing, and not sacrificing quality of course. If anyone is interested at buying
    either side bars or a pushbar, please dont be shy and chime in, so we have some sort of
    idea how much interest in these items.

    I am always “interest”. ready to buy is another thing. I have dropped nearly $2k into my motor and transmission over the last few months. So short term the VX budget is tight. Maybe this fall I will have room for larger ticket items.
