Yep, its called business. Welcome to the new world of making money. I don't believe that they make $100 on a sale, but the can understand how individual parts will cost more.... how much more is debatable, but I can understand why they charge so much for parts. Im not saying I agree with it though..

Jeep Garage Ipad App new version:

In old version, I could switch between Ipad App view and Web view while remaining login and be able to see all posts. But now, I can only switch web view for a given post only and in logout mode.

Lightbar is working.
Enforcer - you sent me in the right direction, thanks
But how I did it in the end was to unbolt the radiator reservoir tank and push it aside and then you can see plenty of lighting wires. I tried the green and white ones but no good. As luck had it the first one tried was right but it was white and yellow/brown. Picked the positive & negative from the battery poles under the bonnet. The only part that was a bit of a struggle was getting thru the firewall, there is a tough double rubber grommet near the foot pedals. I started with a piece of wire then used a box cutter to put a small slit then progressively pulled thicker pieces of cable thru until I could get the loom thru.
It just happened to dark as I finished so I went out and lit up the street.

Best discussed in the relevant thread I linked to where they can see your feedback.

There is one single reason for the Parts rip off

Because they can - they do

If we said NO then the price would come down but we don't

There is an old saying in retail
Sell it for a much as you can get for it.

Snuke, you're a dark character - but we still like ya. I do prefer your current image - your last one looked like a girl.

Hi Russell,

While my vehicle is neither a 2014 model or red, I can show you what a standard ARB black bar and the colour coded version looks like. Through a mixup with the paint, I got to spend two weeks with a black bar on the front of my '13 Overland before the correct one was attached.

You will definitely feel the weight on the front of the vehicle, though the air suspension levels things out nicely. It does take a bit more lead in the toe to get things moving now.

All the best, Woody.
