Under-ride

Guy's
I have just been told that there is a fairly large amount of X5's in a "junkyard" in Qassim 400km from me and that there are some with under-ride guards. If there is enough interest I will drive out there and see.

Let me know.

I would definitely be interested in the under ride if non stupid expensive. Might pay in mouth wash

Offer up a few pounds of bacon and it will magically appear via C130 airdrop

Interested. Would need to grab all fastening hardware. Definitely interested though.

400k is a long way to go according to Google conversion.

If you're going through the effort, assume they might have factory hitch packages too and snag those. Although stupid heavy, they're pretty rare now too. Shipping will be a pita no matter a heavy bar or the bulky under guard. But if people want them, they'll find a way.

You're right about the hitches but 90% over here use pintle hitches so I just figured they were using something made by Abdullah the weekend welder.
