4WD Modifications - Bars, Winches and Side-rails
Bull bars, rear bars, swing-away spare tyre carriers, side bars and side steps, side rails, winches and more - it's all here.
FRONT AND REAR BARS
Your 4WD should be behind bars.
You only have to see how serious 4WDs are dressed up for bush work to appreciate that out-of-the-box 4WDs are underdone for Outback travel and off-road driving. The most obvious addition that most people fit is a bull bar.
BUYING A WINCH
You need a winch to be self sufficient in the bush
Many people see a winch as a means of increasing the off-road ability of a 4WD. It’s an impression that’s easily gained by seeing how off-road competition blokes and gals go about conquering seemingly impossible obstacles, but that’s not how you should look at a recreational vehicle winch.
