Well, I have to say it some time: Our next posting is to Australia!
Been there before, but not with my Dakota or any 4x4, so I'm quite
thrilled! However, there's the danger of roos, cattle, and the odd
camel, so I'm thinking about a bullbar.
This is why it's to the parts guys: I need to know whether or not a
bullbar for a 2001 Dakota SLT, in it's original box, is mailable through
the APO, which means it must weigh less than 70 lbs and not exceed 130"
in combined length and girth. I suspect that it isn't.
It's a common item where I'm going, so I'm not worried about getting it
installed. However, as there's not even a Chrysler dealer there, I
doubt I can order one through a local retailer that'll fit. If you
think I'm wrong about this, please let me know.
Ideas on brands are welcome. I am looking for a real bullbar, not a
"light bar". It'd be a shame to have one of the most travelled Dakotas
in existence, only to have it totaled by a roo.
