I’ve been thinking about a pushbar for thethirdtwin too. Deer armor if nothing else.

the parking assist seems to be the wildcard. So before spend anything I wanted to do a mock up.

I made templates for the uprights from thecopcar. Then taped them into approximate locations relative to the frame.

put them in place and started it up. No warnings, no seat buzzing. so far so good. Time to order right.

Waitaminutehere what about the middle crossbar. More cardboard And tape.

Location approximation from photos in the installation instructions for the bar I want.

No bueno. Nothing but butt vibration. Even tipped way up at an impossible angle, bzzz bzzzz bzzz

I work with CAD every day. Usually the software version. Sometimes the cardboard version is fun too.

After consulting that GoRhino photo again I tweaked the crossbar a bit higher. No mo bzzz.

this might work after all, without a sensor relocation kit.

I decided to get actual K2 recovery hooks for thethirdtwin. I had a feeling the nnbs hooks would be recessed more than I wanted in case a pull happened at an angle, even though they would bolt right in.

Holy moly what a difference.

The pushbars on both are GoRhino public safety 5000 series. The K2 version is fully welded together.
