Hey vossy,
Dont worry about weight. The design of bullbars nowadays the diference bugger all. (30-40 kg max dif.) Car terms, bugger all! Steel is easy to fix, easy to touch up and so much stronger. As for airbags, all the good suppliers have one to suit airbags. (ARB, TJM,etc.) Front end wear & tear, hardly comes into it. Maybe if you had the car for 400000 km, maybe. Aly bars are a pain. Just the maintainance aloan. Have to be polished twice a year and if you gently nudge the earth, it will bend. Ya cant just grab the oxy and a big hammer to straighten it either!
Go for steel! No competition.

Two other things I also take wheeling are:
- a Tyre gauge to know exactly how low the tyres actually are.
- anti baterial wipes, great for wipe grease off the hands and getting them clean before tackling lunch.

When I grew up my oldman told us not to go bush without matches and some toilet paper stuffed in our pocket. I find both come in handy when four wheel driving.

That should always be done, not even a second thought should be necessary.CHEERS
