Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

It looks really good when colour coded and almost changes my mind about bar work on the Grand. Definitely enough to produce a bit of "want" envy.

The recovery facility is done less than half right. ARB should have acted like a market leader by fitting two... and strong enough to leave the disclaimer sticker off. They've really let themselves down with this important aspect, and it's sure to lose them sales to their competitors.

Cheers,
Steve

It looks like you can't fit a winch if you want to keep your FCW Radar

Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

From what I understand you can have a winch and the FCW.

Number plate flips up to access the hawse/fairlead, and winch gearbox lever is accessed via the split pan (slot area) beside the FCW sensor. The sensor is basically sitting in front of the to half of the winch drum.

I think the FCW sensor mounts to the angled bars to the right of the winch control box pictured on page 3 of the product sheet pdf

Will know for certain when my bar shows up in early/mid January and I fit it and a winch.

Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

Interesting that the brochure states that each bar has the provision for 4 parking sensors, yet my Overland has 6.

Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

I'd be interested to see how a sahara bar would look on the GDC if they make one.

I stalled on buying those wheels. If I had have bought them I wouldn't ever have put my roadies back on! Which reminds me, it's time to get the trolley jack out and refit the 20"s.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

Harvey,
How did you go with that ARB bullbar? do you have air suspension? do you have front sensors etc? I am looking at putting one on my new overland but I am being told only the ECB bullbar can fit it because of the sensors. I dont like the chrome style bullbar.

Harvie, are your parking sensors working ok - got my bar fitted last week (with a smittybilt winch} and am finding the parking sensors are very tempremental - maybe the extra weight or the alignment
