Bumper Bar 6x6
« on: September 07, 2014, 09:24:18 AM »
In the 80's (may have been 90's) we owned an ex-army 6x6 for a short while.
We replaced the bumper with one that would take an electric winch.
After about 1 year, the vehicle was sold to NSW.

We still have the original bumper and wondered if any members might be interested.
Some pics are attached.

Wow, that looks very similar to a UK MOD bumper with the raised bumperettes. Interesting that it was on an Aussie model, but then nothing surprises me anymore.

At risk of upsetting people, I will give the dimensions in mm.
Looks like the pairs of mounting holes are at about 709mm centres.
Each pair of bolt holes at about 45mm centres.

Not from a 6x6 Perentie then. I'm guessing it's more than likely from a S3 Lightweight.

Looking at pics, the S3 Lightweight was a 4x4?
The vehicle we had was a 6x6.

No worries guys and thanks for the help.
We are going overseas very soon and it will end up with the other scrap stuff lying around.
Just thought it might be useful for someone. Really believed the 6x6 vehicle was ex-army and we sold it more than 20 years ago.
Cheers,
Andrew

That style of bumper was on British army vehicles, i'm not sure i've even seen one like that on a prototype 6x6, although stranger things have happened.  Actually the Centaur even had a similar one (halftrack). 

What are the chassis width of the 6x6 chassis rails?

It may have been a post army conversion, but as I said, strange things appear once and a while, and I am curious about this one.

It seems the chassis rails, to which this bolts, are 28 inches apart.
The two mounting plates are unusual; the top on is perpendicular to to bumper, but the bottom one is bent up at an angle of 10-15 degrees.
Can measure more if you want and also take extra pics too.
Can't remember from whom this was purchased (through my old business), but it was sold to a friend of a friend in the Blue Mountains.
We sold it because it was a bit of a clunker on the highway, and we did a lot of road miles in those days.
