* Notice the acuramdx.org sticker!! No, the happy face is NOT on my car.
Manik has brush guards for the MDX. Check out their website at Manik.com. No pics are avail, but the general style is featured on other SUVs.wmquan said:Cool! Looks good. I'm happy to see some third-party accessories for the MDX. Now if only someone would make a nice A-bar for the front ...
I will take a shot later with a shoe/ruler, so you can get an idea of size. The gap is approximately 3" but tough to measure since the body of the MDX rolls under. The brackets welded to the bar that hold the bar to the MDX are very sharp and could probably be filed down. I didn't file them because I'm not expecting to load kids on a routine basis. But it is what it is. Could a little one get their foot caught or slip through? "Yep" Is it a hazard? "Eh...they usually deal with playground equipment and other unpredictable things all day, so I'm not sure I'd worry about it since this a "predictable" obstacle. In addition, the front of your foot is usually the major contact, and the angle of entry would make it pretty tough to fall through. But kids are capable of anything. Otherwise...I might knock the edge off the brackets and be good to go. I probably would not hesitate because of kids. If they're old enough to climb in unassisted....they'll probably be OK. But I would file the brackets to knock off the edge. THEN you've only got the under roll of the MDX and the roll of the bar and no sharp edges. Hope this helps.TheWorm said:Thanks again for the pics...can u let us know how big the gap is betw the bar and the body (baby feet)?
First of all...I'm not sure.DBirch said:Hey, can the brackets be shortened so that the side steps fit closer to the body of the car? That is my only visible objection to the Maniks.
