Cladding for Tata Safari?
 

the above pic is of the ford Endeavor club edition. See the black front cladding? Looking for something like that for the safari. Don't want to go in for "Bull Bar" as it has serious safety issues and looks ugly.
So anything heavy and metallic which will transfer all impact directly to chassis is out of the question.
Suggestions please, if possible "with pics" and "with approx price"

Tanveer, they call it the "Front Armour" if I'm not mistaken & so far, I haven't seen an alternative for a Safari.

Is there a reason why you want this on a Safari? Not sure if it would blend with the looks......I do agree with you though that bull bars are not an option.

Suman, I am not looking for the exact same thing, but something similar to make the safari's front end look a little better. Its a silver safari, and my uncle thinks its a little too common in Ludhiana.
He does not want something gaudy and ostentatious but something which will blend with the looks and make it look different. If somehow the cladding also allows big fog lamps, it will be a plus.

Check with Autopsyche if he has something similar for Safari. Or contact DC..

Bull-bars if I'm not mistaken....and he doesn't want those

I normally wouldnt ever recommend DC, but he had made this awesome kit for the Safari. Used to be there at most auto-shows in a maroon body and dark grey cladding. I am sure someone will find pictures. If memory serves me right, it was priced at 30 - 40 grand.

30-40 Grand!!
A bull bar costs 800 Rs. I don't think my uncle would go beyond 8K max.
Need something very simple yet distinct.
If godfathers contraption is made of plastic its okay. It wont put load on chassis in case of a hit. I wonder if something like that is available in Delhi region, and from where.

Get the Carryboy thing. It looks nothing like a bullbar, and suits the Safari perfectly.

If your uncle wants to look different how about changing the rims instead...

desigNation 30th March 2007 09:09

i agree with v1p3r,carryboy makes good stuff,dont know if it would go beyond 8k.

I second this and I even recomended to many of my friends but none got them price being the prime reason

Its not plastic its steel coated with fibre and if you want good finish be prepared for 8K +
