Re: Brush Guard?

Save your money and time in the search. "Brush guards" are for asthetics mainly and even do a poor job at protecting the vehicle from brush most of the time! So even if you found one it still is pretty much useless. The only bumpers that will handle the impact of a large animal at speed are products...

Good to know. I'll keep an eye out for that.

Re: X - Roof Rack Cross Bars

Well I fiddled around with the RailGrab towers last night and they aren't going to cut it either without modding the siderails which would be ludicrous or coming up with a custom claw attachment. Looks like the Landing Pad mod is probably the route I'll go too since the path has already been blazed.

Re: X - Roof Rack Cross Bars

I was hoping that the long claw may have enough of a drop for the tightening knob on the inside to fall above the inside portion of the rail. I definitely think the short claw is out the window. They are supposed to arrive tomorrow so I guess I'll monkey around a little bit and see if they can be ti...

Re: a TX that spent a long time on the lot

Get that price down in the upper 20's IMO. I don't know what options it has (AWD LTD is probably decked) but our '08 is also loaded and was around 32 (invoiced at 37) back in November of last year! That '08 isn't getting any newer sitting there. I wouldn't worry about any ill-effects either. You mig...

Re: X - Roof Rack Cross Bars

I've just bought a Yak Pro 16s and low rider mounts for my X. For now I'm using the 27" raised section but I have a half set of the new Rail Grab mounts on the way to try to take advantage of the flush mounted rear portion of the rack. Figured I'd be a Rail Grab guinea pig to see if they work straig...
