i modified a set of Tidy T Bars to sit neat against my sills by slotting the brackers they hang from.
was a simple job to do but i wouln't do it again as the stainless bars have made my steel T4 corrode (rust) where in contact with the stainless bars if i done it again i would leave a tiny gap to prevent this form hapening again...

if you've slotted the brackets can you not move them out a touch ??

They were my first choice as I like the style but I've been asking for a few months without any joy - they're so good at exhausts they haven't time to make side bars!! One of the reasons I wanted close fit is cos of my PPT side exit systemT:

Sounds good...let us see some photos when they're done. Probably a bit ambitious for my metal work skillsI:

That sounds like a good ideaT: Can you still use the jacking points??

Same problem Steve, side exhaust from PPT, so I want a set of their side bars. I'll phone them again in the next couple of days, see if the bars are going into production.

I don't think with any sidebars you'll be able to use the original jack on the sills as they will be blocked by the bars... I have no issues jacking mine up with a trolley jack atall though....

Hi there!

I know these from the UK-made 4x4-brandsI:
With that in mind, it has allways been an issue reg fitting.
Where to bolt?
Where & how do you guys fit them to your busses?
A picture would be greatly appreciated;)

If off one of Solihull finest, than off a 90 or a 110
I would guess a 11o would suit a SWB Van
However I dont see the fitting mating up at all as most original and AM Land Rover Defender parts bolt to the outriggers.
The original LR parts tend to corrode badly:(

The early Discoverys (1 and maybe2) might be a basic part needed modification to fit a T4
Measure up the wheelarch distance
Tight fitting parts off Range Rover Classic should not be OK at all as the RRC has a sway in the bottom body-line. Not the fact on the Discovery 1 and Defender.
Fittings are however identical on the RRC and the Disco1 as they share the boxframeT:

Any such mod might interest me though;)
