    no worries, it was this guy who built it.
    1 man shop, does a good job.

    Dont be concerned when you call the number you will be redirected, just note down the new number.

    There is someone on rollaclub.com using a celsior to tow with, he's in Cairns though but might be worth asking on there. Actually I am 99% sure he is on here so I am surprised he hasn't commented.

    Hey Clay, i reckon its all BS, the tow bar has no solid link to the subframe at all... if you overloaded the downward force on the bar then it may have some affect... but even then, the shock/ spring is taking all the force.
    I have heard of subframes cracking on M35's that havent had tow bars fitted. so i call BS untill i see my own crack.

    I havent had a car on the back yet, im gonna make a custom trailer just to keep the weight down etc.
    tows a box trailer fully loaded no worries, dont even know its there.

    Yeah that's him, my hiace is only rated to 1.4T so can just legally tow my T18 with it.
