Well, it still looks like its fixed on the chassis so would have the same problem as the bullbars? I think the issue Tanveer had with bullbars was the fact that they are mounted on the chassis.......

The reason we don't want to go for bullbars is that bullbars compromise safety.
In case of even a small impact all the shock is transferred to the passengers as a bullbar bypasses the crumple zones. Apart from that in an impact which would have just damaged your bumper you end up with a busted chasis = Total loss.

In case of an impact normally the bumper gets deformed, then the radiator shatters. Chasis gets an impact pretty late in the scene, no matter what vehicle.
If you have a bull bar, the chasis will be the first thing which will be hit. esp if your bull bar is heavy. So a light weight contraption is fine, but a heavy bull bar is no no. I will look into this carryboy thing.

Not to mention the bull-bar itself, which will also need repairs/ replacement. The bull-bar will help only in fender-benders.

Bull bar is cheap, even if its busted its okay, but I don't want the chassis to get busted.
gd, you got any better pics of your contraption so that I can see.
How much did it cost?
Any addresses?

@tsk: This is "Carryboy" that is there on Godfather's car also.

There is another brand called "Hiker" which looks similar, but is more fragile. May be thats what you want: the bull-bar to break before it can transfer any impact to the chassis.
