Just wondering if anyone has seen one of these bars around and if they know the brand/place to buy one? I really like that it has a bit of side protection aswell but not too big. Thanks Brad

Re:


Hi Brad,

Google found this exy selling through a dealer as seen HERE, so either give the dealer a call so they can read you the company name sticker on the nudge bar or ask them to put you in touch with the owner of the exy who can help you with information about it.

Re: Nudge Bars & Bullbars for the new X-Trail T31


Hi all,
Having read the previous pages and being a newbie to the X-trail, I was wondering if anyone has had a problem with vision when using the AVM with an ECB 76mm nudge bar? It is a really handy feature when parking in tight spots which I would like to retain. Open to any suggestions.

Thanks,

Re: Nudge Bars & Bullbars for the new X-Trail T31


Hi all.
A few pages back I shared my bullbar mods and my plans to run a 12000lb winch. To refresh I have a TUFF aero bullbar that was made winch comparable by TUFF ( extra $200 for thicker alloy and stiffened) I than went and put a 12000lb domain8r winch in it. Now at the time of the last post I had not tested it in anger yet. However now I have so I can say 100% it can be done and it dose work. After taking the exy to cape York and getting stuck several times also used it to recover a bogged to the sills 80series. I have also used it to recover myself at local tracks from some very sticky and deep mud. Now the car is till 100% in tact there has been no movment from the bullbar or any other component. So can it be done YES is it an expensive exercise YES. Just my 2cent I do not encourage any one else to try it under myfindings they are my experience only I can not crecomend it unless you know exactly what you are doing.

Please use the Winch thread to share more information about this set-up and it would be interesting to see photos of it in action as well. Thanks

posticon Re: Nudge Bars & Bullbars for the new X-Trail T31


Well, I've read this thread from start to end. I'm still undecided about which full bar to fit to my T31 X-Trail. I've narrowed the choice to the two offered by ECB, and the Tuff Bar. Planning to use the Nissan as an all roads tourer over the next few years, and with my experience as a National Courier servicing the Mining Industry vehicle protection is a must.

At the moment I'm leaning towards the ECB Big Tube Bar. I realise it'll be a throwaway job after a severe animal strike but hopefully the vehicle will still be mobile. And that's the whole point I reckon. An all steel bar would be a better option but I doubt the X-trail's front end is strong enough to support the extra weight and survive a decent impact.

I had steel bars on both my previous work utes, and the most recent one on a BT50 4X2 'bounced' many large 'roos out of harms way. The Cobar region is thick with Skippy's cousins. Does anyone have any long term feedback on the ECB full bar products? I have never had a vehicle with an alloy bar. I was driving a Company Iveco dual cab ute when we struck a big red male just north of Katherine in the NT last year. It came out of the scrub at full speed and the Iveco caught it mid hop in the centre. Destroyed the alloy bar completely and knocked out all light apart from parking light. The ute was still driveable though. I reckon that roo weighed at least 120 kg and were doing about 95km/h at the time of impact. It's easy to say to travel slower but with a 9000km round trip with urgent parts on board time is critical. Happily I no longer do that work, but the Australia I saw during my time in that role gave me a taste of our real Outback and the desire to see more of it!

Hey, ive had a ECB Big Tube Bar on my xtrail since May 2014, i havnt hit anything with it yet, but as far as the bar itself is, i think it looks great, it holds my led bar firmly and is a nice touch that it has the led side lights and indicators along with fog lights.

I also spoke a fair bit with the guys from ECB through email before buying and have to say they were very very helpful with any questions i had.
