that snorkel looks the business but we needed snowflake to bulk up a little more; the outback is a tough place. it’s also full of tough animals that despite many years of coexistence with motorized vehicles still have not grasped the basics of road safety. on the upside it is accepted practice to avoid sharp braking or swerving.

in other words: when in doubt choose the local fauna over, say, a sturdy tree or a ditch. hence the bull / roo bar. a solid and somewhat angular piece of steel instead of a flimsy albeit nice looking plastic cover.

we have chosen white so it’s easier to clean off the blood splatter.
