Now they are Bullbars. Pity they only look the part they are plastic but you can carry spare water in them.

A bit like the Mountain Mule pack frame, you could carry fuel for the tilly lamp in it but I never heard of anyone doing it.

Rushy could carry a couple of gallons of Waikato in it I suppose.

You could lie under the engine on the roadside guiding a stream of Waikato into your mouth and pretend you were fixing something 'Rushy'

Remember 'Happy' you asked this question. Well the next day I remembered 'BRIEFLY' that we were discussing the fitting of the said Landcruiser winch set up behind the Bullbars. I said to myself that I will post a photo on here as the easiest way to explain to 'Happy' how it is done in Toyota land. Well I wandered upstairs and got the keys as I had to back the Landcruiser out of the shed to get the photo for you.

So here I been thinking of lots of different things when I bring the keys back down and then I climb in and turn on the ignition and while I wait for the glow plugs to do their job I think 'now what the fuck am I going to town for'. You know, I could not for the life of me remember what I was going to town for. So I turn off the ignition and lock the Landcruiser and sneak back inside in case anyone asks me what I am doing 'cause I really don't know by now what I am doing'. The camera on the Landcruiser seat is quite forgotten by this time.

Yesterday when I read this thread I realised I hadn't answered your post 'Happy' Then I remembered why I was actually sitting in the vehicle the other day. So now you know why I say, 'its going to be a long old age'. Actually it may be quite short old age but I will have forgotten when it started by then, so it will appear a long time anyway.
