Talking Bull bar on wk2 with air suspension

I plan to fit an ECB bull bar to my WK2 GC Overland with air suspension.
Will the extra weight of the bull bar have any effect on the air suspension?

Regards to all.

Re: Bull bar on wk2 with air suspension

Looks like after removing about 4 lbs from the front, you'll have added around 70 lbs total in the end. It's about time aftermarket parts start coming out for these.

I like it. I just don't know about the all polished look.

found another pic:

When I had one on my Expedition with 4 corner load leveling the only thing I noticed that my front brakes wore out quicker. Also, I hope you don't have ACC

It's now suitable for vehicles with the ACC radar.

Re: Bull bar on wk2 with air suspension

It doesn't replace the factory bumper? I wonder why they chose to have it mount over the bumper?

Re: Bull bar on wk2 with air suspension

Re: Bull bar on wk2 with air suspension

Precisely my wife's sentiments.
I wonder if a nudge bar would look better?

Re: Bull bar on wk2 with air suspension

I would definitely like this for front end protection but I don't think the wife would approve. Maybe just go with a inside the OEM bumper winch and a nudge bar for a little protection.
