Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

Does anyone know if the new ARB Bullbar will fit the Summit?

Would not have thought there was that amount of difference in the Summit bumper, but the couple of ARB stores I called this morning said that the comments on the Bullbar state that fitment is not confirmed for Summit models and that they would not look at trying to fit one until it could be confirmed!

Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

Big difference between Summit and others, Zybane had fun making his Summit fully off road worthy as a result.

Unfortunately most of his build pics are gone, but have a read of his build thread - Zybane's "Arctic" Diesel Build

Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

Just a heads up to anyone with an ARB bar, you may want to check how your felt wheel arch liners are attached to the bar. Mine were just tucked in behind the tabs of the lower wing panels and the side of the bar.
When I was airing the tyres up the other day, I noticed both liners had come out (I suspect during a water crossing) and the right hand side tyre had rubbed right through the liner, you can see the air compressor through the hole in the pic's. So yeah, if your liners are just tucked in like mine were, grab some steel cables ties or something and secure them properly.

The Uneek bar is exactly the same and when I questioned them and asked why there wasnt tabs on the bar to allow the liners to be properly fixed they said that the body and the bar flex differently and therefore the liners could not be securely fixed?

Legitimate or just an excuse for a crappy finnish I dont know

I believe there is some flex which is why there's a decent gap between the bar and body panels. The liners were secured to the bar on my prado and these felt liners aren't exactly rigid, I'll be securing them to the bar and see how it goes.

Just an excuse! There is plenty of flex in the liners and if they used the quarter-turn fasteners that Jeep use on the air-dam there will be quite a bit of lateral movement as well. It's all a mater of cost and hoping no one will notice.

Must admit I was leaning that way myself, cant say that I am happy with the finish on either the Uneek Bar or their Sliders/Steps both ended up looking cheap and nasty

Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

Just ordered a set of the Uneek rock slider/steps and getting fitted next Thirsday.

I looked at the Mopar ones and dealer wanted 2200 plus 600 for fitting. Even with the 20% off Mopar deal atm i got the uneek ones for $1487 fitted.

I will take some picks next week

Did you see them in the flesh or pics?

I'm a pedantic prick so your comment might put me off them.

WORSE!
I now have both the Bull Bar and Sliders installed on my Summit and now dont have many options
No way I would have put either on, if I had seen them in the flesh beforehand.
