Who offers the Smartest looking Nudge Bar or Bull Bar for the T30?


G'Day X Trailers,

I am ready to purchase a white Ti X Trail. I'm currently putting my wish list together.

Who offers the smartest looking nudge bar? Factory or after market?

I would like a nudge bar that sits a little bit lower so that you can see the smoked X Trail bonnet protector.

Awesome informative website!

Jason,

I like the OE from Nissan as it also has the Protection underneath ( and it was for free).

Buy before march and join us at Stockton

The genuine one is clearly the best looking, IMHO. However the $900 (plus fitting) price tag wiped it out for me.

I'm happy with my ARB, std grey colour, $347 incl. fitting.

The Nissan one is 3 times more expensive, but not quite 3 times better looking!! emoticon

Thanks for the response guys,

This forum is great, I have been reading over previous topics and dicussions to help me with the decision making on fitting out my ideal X Trail.

I am purchasing this X Trail for saftey reasons for my wife and 1 year old daughter. But come weekends, I will be off on adventures.

Thus I will be attending trips to Stockton Beach etc.

Re: Who offers the Smartest looking Nudge Bar?


Jason,

I’ve seen plenty of non-genuine nudge/bullbars for the X-trails around. Although none really appeal to me compared to the Genuine Nissan nudge bar I’ve got on mine and I’m really happy with it.

It may be more expensive but if looks is your thing, the Genuine in my opinion is the way to go. The big black edging makes it look really mean.

Although just remember the black edging is only made of plastic, so I’m not sure how it would hold up if you hit a roo or something. I suspect it would break terribly.

I’m sure most of the non-genuine would be a lot more stronger and sturdy, then your also sacrificing additional weight.

Some food for thought.

Kind Regards

For a white Exy, there's no question:

ARB colour-coded (they use the exact same paint as the car, so the nudge is pearl as well)

Re: Who offers the Smartest looking Nudge Bar?


Todders and Panfa have stumbled across a great looking Bull Bar that is made locally by Barjo Engineering group for the ST and Ti exy's.

Here is a photo of it

Image

Rob (panfa) has since contacted Jeff at Barjo and obtained the following pricing information:

quote:


I spoke to Jeff at Barjo this morning. He's a friendly bloke and was interested to know about our little web group.

They've moved to Wagga but have a free call number (1 300 667 117).

The bars are made of polished alloy and are airbag compatible. Geoff says they are not heavy enough to require an upgrade of front springs or suspension.

The bar replaces the X-Trail plastic bumper from the bottom of the headlights down.

They are made to order and take 3-4 weeks.

Prices: ST $1364 inc GST; TI $1424 inc GST (TI is higher because it includes provision for foglights). Includes all fixtures and fittings.

$300 deposit required with order.

Shipping to Sydney with a company they use is $77 and of course if you can't fit it yourself, there would be fitting charges involved by whoever did it.

He will send me a photo (Jalal - can I email it to you to put up on the site?).

Also, Jeff says they would be ready to sharpen the pencil for a group buy.

I am certainly interested.



Jeff (from Barjo) has also advised that they're in the process of modifying the bull-bar slightly by modifying the hoops slightly - maybe making the central hoop a little higher and straightening the side ones a little.

Barjo is open to your suggestions and feedback and you can either call them direct or post your suggestions and question here for them to see.

Thank you Barjo for a great looking product emoticon

I think it would be great to post ideas here as well so we can all "umm" and "aah" over the concepts.

Personally, I would like to see the hoops a little more like those on the ARB and ECB bullbars for the Jeep Wrangler - side hoops a little higher than the ARB if that's possible. Headlight position might be a problem with that, though.

Love the air intakes on the underside of the Barjo.

I think I saw one of these full bars round Chatswood today. I had to double-take because I wasn't sure it was an X-Trail at first! Not entirely sure if it was the one in the Barjo picture... was pretty mean looking though! I'll keep my eyes open for it again... hopefully it resides in the area.

Re: Who offers the Smartest looking Nudge Bar or Bull Bar?


Looking at the picture again, I was trying to figure out where the join between the Barjo and the body was and then it occurred to me that the existing plastic bumper might have to be cut.

So I contacted Barjo again and they confirm that the plastic bumper has to be cut off about 20mm below the grille.

That's not unusual, but it might make a difference to resale value if someone didn't want the X-Trail with a bull bar on it.

Anyone know what a replacement Nissan bumper for a TI would cost?
