I installed mine myself. I had a trolley jack which allowed me to put them into position and mark holes then remove again about a dozen times. I took my time but know that I did a perfect job.
You want to make sure you get them as high as possible. Also if you have mud flaps leave them on so you get the position spot on.

I would put these on only if you want them for the protection, as they make getting in and out of the car difficult. They are too high and don't act as a step, they are more of an extension to the floor height. My wife is always complaining about them. I love them.

Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

Hmm that's a worry, my missus drives it more than I do. Now I have to decide whether to plough ahead without telling her this or not... She's happy with the cheap steps we have already, but they will not help us when offroading.

Some good news I got from SBR, was that the list price includes fitting, so that was nice to hear.

Just check the time given for the install so there is no misinformation. There was some talk about the original time given not being sufficient.

The time issue is certainly true for the Mopar rock rails. Multiply by 2 and add a day gets you closer to the mark.

Regarding wife approval, surprisingly my wife and even my aged mother both like the Mopar rock rails over the crappy Mopar side-steps I had. I think it's because the rock rails feel so much more rigid. I don't know how they compare to the Uneek ones.

I got mine installed at SBR. The install was of high quality and I've had no issues with it. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1430138107.323145.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1430138138.679708.jpg

Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

Uneek have had their tow hooks on their bullbar rated:

If you own, or are looking at purchasing our Steel Bull Bar for the 2011 on Grand Cherokee, you might be interested to know that we have had the tow points rated. They are now rated at 3 tonne each. For customers who already have this bar fitted, we will soon be able to provide a rating sticker on request.

Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

Got quoted just over $3K the other day for fitting of ARB bar (for overland), Radar kit, fog lights and colour coating. Is this normal?

Saw on Ausjeep and here a few times, quotes around 2300 - 2500.

Is it purely a WA thing (ie getting stock over) or am I definitely looking at that kind of cost?

Any others in WA with ARB bar quotes similar or less?

Any help appreciated.

Cheers,

jaemie

Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

hi guys . i purchased a 2014 limited with an arb already installed . What i thought was a recovery point is a tow hook . It looks like 8mm thickness at least and bolted onto the chassis . is this strong enough as a recovery point for light snatching in sand ?


thanks
