Ciao tutti

Further to the above, interest has been expressed in these guards again. I can go ahead with a one off for the gent in question but is there any other intrest so I can make a batch up?

To refresh your memories:

The one on the right is what used to protect my transfer case; the one on the left, in conjunction with the bracket below, is what does the job now...

Plainly the bracket is actually welded up correctly rather than a neatly laid out pile of bits as shown. Everything was powder coated black & all nuts & bolts were supplied in stainless steel.

When we did it last year (when did we do it?) the cost for the kit was £52.00 plus £12.95 P&P via GPO tracked service.

I think everyone who had one last time was very pleased with the guard & seemingly some have proved their worth on the battle grounds offroad already.

Cheers

did anyone from the first batch fit one to an early hdj81?

my existing 'bash plate' is not like the one pictured at all. its made of plastic and spans rail to rail rather than fixing on the crossmember. it has some of the sound deadening like that under the bonnet, so i'm not sure if its some sort of acoustic cover. Being plastic, i doubt it can protect from much more than noise, well that and gravel maybe.

yeah mine look like that, although mine is an auto, not a manual.

i have no idea why they seem different for JDM 80's

anyway to further confuse the neighbours i went out and took some photos.







hopefully that will work

Thanks for the commendations chaps - I wish I could claim original thought for the 'design' but even so, I was well chuffed with how they turned out. Thumbs up to my supply chain really :D

Got you down there Ryan - cheers dude :thumbup:

Callum - the following pic shows where the guard fits:

The kit fitted any truck that we tried it to so I am sure it would fit your's - what year is it?

I see you've posted since I started this reply - you're looking for 3 bolt fixings in a triangle arrangement on the metal x-brace just ahead of the transfer box... Them's the ones the plate picks up on & then the bracket fixes to the chasis rail. This was photo from Adrian's manual - the kit fitted fine once he'd taken the plastic plate off...

He didn't have the small plate I had & was able to re-use the bolts holding the plastic in place to fit the new kit - I have no doubt it will fit your truck.

Va bene

I can't see the pictures from work but mine is a 96 Auto and had the large plastic plate that you describe.
Gav's plate fits fine, I just have to trim the plastic plate in front of it over the gearbox itself.
At the moment the gearbox plastic is overlapping Gav's plate and one of the bolts from it doesn't fit but it's been like that for some time now.

Yes please, you can add me to the list. I've just read the 18 page thread on these guards and they look well worth the money.

Top bloke Gav, for putting in all the effort.

Cheers,

Scott.
