Hi Neil, after reading Tony's post about his ECB nudge and the need to drill a couple of holes, I checked ECB's fitting instructions just to make sure and found out that yes, there is a need to drill holes in the front bumper support frame to fit the nudge bar brackets in place.

I have uploaded the ECB fitting instructions for the 2011-12 T31 X-Trail which were sent to me by ECB last year. The fitting instructions can be downloaded from HERE

I just remembered an important point regarding fitting the after-market nudge bars yourself. For insurance purposes and to cover yourself against any liability should there be a malfunction with the operation of the airbags, it is always a good idea to have an authorized ECB fitter (or any other compliant nudge bar manufacturer) fit the nudge bar in place, so you have a record and receipt of the fitting as proof for the insurance company that everything was done by the book.

Hi Haz,
          No, I cant see the top of the bar while driving but this is due to 2 issues. Firstly, the bonnet protector adds a bit height and secondly, I'm the shortest person I know. Maybe if I sat on the Sydney phone book I might be able to get a glimpse. No problems with reflections from the headlights and the recovery point is fully usable.

Regards
John



Hi John. Thanks for your reply. Reason I ask is I can see the half of the top of the Nissan bar on my 03/4 X trail and was wondering if the new bars were the same on the 2011 X ?

Re:


I picked her up last Monday, and waiting to take a pic. Its been absolutly pouring with rain ever since night and day so I took this in the shed. Its a genuine Nissan nudg bar plus nissan driving lights. Sorry about the bad pic but thats the best I could do without getting drenched. Will take a better one when the rain stops. Cheers, Haz.

To be honest with you Allan, I reckon this bullbar makes the exy look like a steam-train, but it is a matter of personal taste I guess. The most importat thing to find-out from this manufacturer (and all others) is their bullbar compliance with the factory air-bag system and if they provide a certificate of compliance to prove this. I know Barjo bullbars and others local nudge bar manufacturers do.

That's a mighty Bull Bar - TBones for dinner!!!

The lower part might limit you to flat bitumen and flat dirt roads because it seems close to the ground and quite forward of the wheels ie low entry angle if negotiating ditches and creeks.

You'd most certainly get an invite to go to the B&B ball.
All you'd need is about 4 spotties, 3 ariels and a couple of truck mudflaps and your set.

I've got an ECB Type 8 bar. It's definitely ADR compliant. emoticon

Since I live in a country town and travel regularly on country roads, it makes more sense for me to get a bull bar and not a nudge bar but it's really up to you emoticon

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


Thanks for everyone's information, this is why I joined. I also belong to Ulysses Motor Cycle Club and the same happens .
Translucidus has a good point, but that is OK. As I will not be doing real off roading, I want to protect the car as much as possible when I go on side roads and could run into sheep, wombats, and hopefully only small roos (prefer none of these please).
I have lived in the country, and yes, escaped hitting anything - only just. Especially in standard car.
