I can get a 3 inch alloy nudgebar for an EA-ED for only $100 and it's in perfect condition but it's in Melbourne. I think it's still available.

I got one priced through an Autopro shop. They
made the calls and hunted around.
From memory I think they quoted about $450 new.

You can always check the wreckers, but unfortunately if
the car has had a front-ender, aint much left of a nudge bar...

Best of luck.

ummm .... about $325 from memory .... I only got the Strikers (adjustable beam) ... the XGT are not adjustable ... be slightly better length ... about the same price ... then the HID (fully sealed ballast) ... deeper light ... was over the $1000 mark. (also 2km of beam distance).

I have seen the 240HIDs work on a mates Hilux (nearly a tufftruck) at night ... and JEEEEZUS ... night was like day ... have never seen anything like it at night.

That's why the interstate truckers swear by them ... also cos they are literally indestructible as well

With the beam adjustment ... when on a wider beam ... it looks like a light ring ... and just keep the other one of spot and aim it in the middle.

Although there are the wide/spot covers that give both from the one beam ... I am going to get those to try out on mine.

I got my from Tru-Racks in Penrith ... and I have seen a Blueys the same 240 Strikers for about the same price from memory.

Comes with full harness in it and all mounting bits and pieces ... you might need to get some spacer plates for the nudge bar mounting tabs as the outer edge of the lght might foul with the bar ... so the mounting spacers might be needed to get them to sit right.

don't think so .... the front bar is different (so nudge bar shape will be too) and I'd say the mounting points will be different too.
