Here's an address for some pics, click on tube front end. The lighting in some of the pics isnt the best, I checked these out at SOR and they are really nice. They look sweet in the flesh. http://briefcase.yahoo.com/rich_segebartt

I've got a couple pics of the xtreme4x guy's rigs on my Rubicon trip pics. Both the maroon and green zuks are built by them. The front clips are the same, but it's much easier to see on the green one.

The URL is in my sig. Just goto the Suzuki section and then to the Rubicon pics.

nothing illegal about a tube front except for the fact that your tires arent covered. you might need some mud flaps for the street.

Interseted in some more detailed pics of how the tubular front clip mounts to the tub. Ive looked at the above pics and also the azrockcrawler site.
Also Ive heard that someone makes a clip for 300.00 pre made. Who and where?

Thanks

i never did do it to mine, mostly cause i built a complete new zuki than that one i had at the time, but i was going to weld a flat plate with 4 holes in the corners and bolt it to the fire wall with a matching plate on the inside, and weld it into one piece......

Lights???

I don't see any legality issues with a tube front clip, except maybe the headlights... I know AZ's Rig has Hella driving lamps for headlights, which I like that idea alot, but I wonder if in a state other than AZ such as NC that this mod might not pass inspections... Does anyone make a dual beam driving light with a single bolt mount? That way It might pass easier... I plan on doing a tube clip as well with Hoodpins and such, just to keep it simple... Ill post pics as progress of the tube work comes along... If anyone knows about light issues, let us know...

Hugh

Lights....single post mount with dual (high/low) beams AND turn signals...

Try snow plow lights.... not very cheep @~$100 a pair, but they are fairly water tight and use a std. rectangule halogen light.

These ARE legal as the plow blade usually blocks all regular stuff on the truck...

I dont think i would run one that open up here in the NW, too many branches would want to reach in there and rip out the wiring. Maybe install some paneling or keeping part of the fender well would work.

$425? I thought SCWAFISH said he paid like $300 for it on another post... I'd do it in a heartbeat for that... but for an extra $125 I could have a JD2 & 1.5" 180 degree die... Is that DOM or HREW?
