Bedford MJ Side protection and under run protection bars

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help with detailed drawings of under run bars please and estimated cost of supply and fit? My 1987 Bedford MJ sailed through all aspects of it's MOT this week except the dreaded under run bars. Has anyone fitted side AND rear bars which are removable, I am being told by a local LGV repairer that the rear must be permanently attached. Obviously if we have to comply with this EU ruling I would prefer not to spoil the look of my vehicle and be able to remove the bars when on the show field. Any drawings, typical costs or information welcome. To complicate matters my truck is fitted with an ATLAS crane and outriggers. Thanks Gents.

This is one of those world of hurt exemption arguments. It has been discussed on here before.

Hi mate, check out the underuns on my Bedford MJ pictures. They look like they are an original feature of the truck & are bolted on so they can be removed without any trouble. Your truck looks lovely, where did you get her?

Thanks Dan, the whole underun bar issue is a nightmare in my opinion, more outlay, another retest fee, all for a truck which has done 5000 miles in the ten years I've own it. All seems a bit excessive, If I owned a pre 1984 Bedford it would not require the bars. Nonsensical, when oh when will some common sense be applied by the powers that be in relation to the vehicle preservation hobby? I fear the hobby is going to suffer as we are subjected to tighter EU regs year on year. I bought my truck from a truck Dealer in County Durham. Kevin Dixon Commercials, a real nice guy, I'd recommend him to anyone.

 

Cheers
