ARB bars fit over the crush tubes as well. Having said that, I cut mine out anyway so I dont have rhe worri when i alter the bars for the body lift. Not that you need to cut them out for that!

Thanks for the comments oompa. As for the bighorns, they've gone through mud, clay, large loose rocks, ruts and river crossings without any trouble, so I have absolutely no complaints. They've also done 5000km's of on road use with very very minimal wear.

Muzila - I don't see how those crush tubes are in the way of putting the bar on with a body lift. I left my crush tubes alone and my MU has a 50mm body lift.

Regards
Michael

Hey Mate,

Nice job with the MU. If you remember, how easy was 50mm body lift? Also where from and how much was the kit if you remember?

I am thinking to get 33" wheels and body lift is somewhat necessary.

PS: Your dump pipe done magic for my MU. I also got the rest of the exhaust in 2 & 3/4 (due to press bend).

PPS: Rancho 9000 are the best money I spent on the car after the exhaust! I also got a kit for in-cabin control.

Hi MU31TD,

I got my body lift from http://www.trademe.co.nz - there is a set listed on there at the moment, but it may or may not be the same seller
http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-par ... 499938.htm

It was fairly easy to install, except for the back two blocks. I think that the seller had sent me the wrong thread bolts or they were too short for those ones.. it's been a while

there seems to be a seller in aus on ebay though;

and thank you MRMUD for the kind words.

Broken Mu is no longer mine. :(

Had to sell the old girl since injuring my back made four wheel driving off limits which in turn made it unfeasible to keep a fully setup 4wd as well as a falcon.

Sold to a guy in the south east suburbs of Vic.

Cheers for the well wishes.

I hadn't thought about introducing him to the forums at the time. I still have his number, so I will let him know about clubisuzu. He seemed like a genuinely good bloke who knew a fair bit about the Mu, I guess he might have some information that could help others.

Lots more. I have a X cage. Fixed the front bar so it comes out to line up with the guard. (Fitted some time ago rear box's to put stuff in, 2 12'' subs. witch is coming out) New rear box's going in as just the two of us going away now. No need foe the back seat. So if some one is after a rear set up hit me up :lol: . Rear bar with two tyres. Replaced most bushes and JB's. Cb,two batterys, low water for the radiator, Fan on the cooler that come in at 70c. HID's Fox-wing and lots more.
