Hi All. This is the Roo Bar I made for a customer. It was built with 1.75" tubing, rather than adhering to the EXCELLENT version that obnoxiousblue created using 1.5" tubing.

Do you all have any critiques, or suggestions for future Roo Bars?

obnoxiousblue-- I PM'd you.

I think it looks really good! I'm used to the split window ones that have the hump on top, but it looks good with the flat top.

hard to tell, but there is no curve-in on the "ears" of your bar, correct? I like how most roo-bars kinda conform to the front curve of the bus nose.

Based upon solid feedback, I narrowed the hoops toward the center and swept them back another 6 degrees.

That definitely looks better! How does it attach underneath?

U-channel brackets welded to the subframe, then bolts through the tubing. I'll post some pics tomorrow.

No rush. I'll be curious to see em.

Love your light bar design, btw. Saw it in the classifieds.
