And if I assume from your use of the name Sierra & the term outback that you're in Australia, I'd say you can add another 50% onto that estimate - for some reason known only to ARB, you can be ARB gear cheaper in the US than you can in Australia.

Why the heck would you want to order a bullbar from the US? The shipping alone will kill you.

Have you considered ADR & legal requirements? It's not as if there aren't Australian made bullbars.

If I understand you correctly, absolutely no one does a bull bar to fit a Suzuki Sierra? Is that it? Or is it a specific style of bullbar?

Either you and I have a different definition of bull bar or you haven't searched properly - the very first hit on Google is Twin Stick Offroad, they do a bullbar for the Sierra, as does ARB, and I'm pretty certain I can find more.

For the Money I'd have to recommend a Spartan in the front and a spool in the rear.
Don't get me wrong. ARB's are great , but a very spendy upgrade.
I've been running a Spartan for about a year now with good results.
$185 in the states. Minni spool $90.
For $1500 buy a welder a tube bender and a drill press and learn to use Them. A Bull bar is fabrication 101....Then you will have the equipment to build your rear bumper , cage , sliders , shock hoops , EYC.
... Boxcar ...

I think I'm a little confused, what is still coming from the US? ARB bullbars are not made in the US, they are made in Australia.

Are you asking me to believe that you can source an ARB bullbar in the US and ship it back to Australia for less than you'll pay in Australia? I know you can do that with the air lockers, but those are a lot smaller & lighter than a bullbar. Freight charges on a bullbar are going to kill you.

Perhaps you should join a couple of the Aussie Suzuki forums and ask the guys there where they get their bullbars from - try AusZookers for a start.
