    Default I finally have a Steel rear bumper on my Grand Vitara

    Hey all.

    It has been a long time, since I posted on the forum.
    “Sorry for this”

    Slowly my GV is getting some love and attention.
    What do you guys think of the rear steel bumper.



    I must still mount the number plate and I need to mount the trailer plug. I am happy that all 8 mounting points are used.
    I like it that the tow hitch is higher then std.

    Thanks

    Did you make that yourself?

    Either way it’s damned nice. So often they look like additions to battle tanks, that gives you the strength of the proper bumper and something that’s easy on the eye. Nice.

    Have to add though, the gap between the tow ball and the spare wheel gives me a back spasm looking at it??

    I wish I built it myself.

    It is a company in Pta that built it for me.

    Yes I can’t hook a trailer, but I can move it out. As there is another hole to slot it and to fit the pin.

    Nice. Well done.
    A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A water logged stick will do just fine. A dog doesn't care if you’re rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give her your heart and she'll give you hers. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?

    The selling price will be R12500 excl fitment.
    But incl a towbar.

    I think it is not bad if you compare to jimny bumpers etc.

    You can see a lot of work went into the bumper. To get the body lines etc

    What are the holes for next to the recovery points? For a high lift jack?
