    Hey mate places to look are your local tip, go and talk to all your local panel beaters. Then there is always your scrap metal joints. If your really that keen I know where a GU ARB winch bar is sitting atm with bent wings i could get to next to nothing probably 20$ add carton of piss on top for me and i'll chop the box out. You organize a courier to pick it up at your cost.

    Thanks for that, I will try locally first. Your offer will be kept on hold if you don't mind.
    I want to be able to lift the front of my ute with a Hilift, from the sides so it lifts that side not the whole front.
    The bar I have now has lift points inside the "uprights" and lifts both wheels off the ground. Really dangerous with a Hilift or jack of any sort especially on a track.
    A lift point about the headlights or wider is what I have in mind.
    What are your thoughts?

    Edit, Love the beer economy LOL
    Cheers

    Hate mate I love my high lift jack I've got all the tackle to go with it. Winching chains wheel lifts ply blocks are 60mm thick 300x300 with a routred in 20mm for the bass of the jack to sit in. Every time i use it I stress more so after a few beers, I've never had a bad experience but it does take a rocket scientist to imagine what could go wrong.

    Heres some food for thought I built this tow bar for one of my older patrols. Lock in jack mounts.







    Sorry if i've missed your point alittle flat out in the workshop.
