Rear bars offer a lot of protection to vehicles . They also serve as a mount for extra wheel carriers, water and fuel containers, light fixtures, radio aerials and other equipment. Even if you don't need the use of two spare tires , moving the spare from beneath the vehicle will allow for an installation for a long-range fuel tank.
In most cases, rear bars double as a towbar using a receiver for a hitch integrated in the chassis, that doesn't apply to the other vehicles. The Harrop E Locker functions as a fully-open differential until activated by the driver. Electromagnetic engagement means there’s no need for an air compressor to lock and unlock the mechanism.
