You will need to section both the sides and add in some length.

In addition the curve on the corners is sharper on a wagon, making it difficult to get a sedan bar to fit comfortably without reworking it a fair bit.

You will also need to attach a wagon REO and mounting brackets.

Unless you are good with fiberglass and body work you will need to find someone who has experience.

Unfortunately, there are few choices for bars on the rear of the wagon.


Oh, the side skirts will be too short as well.

Cheers
BenJ

cut/shut job hacking 3-4 bumpers to make it suit. lots of work.. makes the B series bar on a e series upper bumper look like an easy job.. Definatly have a go yourself. Could cost lots for a custom bar.
