Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

ARB had better pull their finger out or they will miss the boat. I'm already eying off Rocky Road unit Grand Cherokee Skid Plates: 2011 Grand Cherokee Front Skid Plate although it is hardly a bull-bar.

Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

Scarps, any chance of asking your mate at Uneek4x4 what would be involved in getting the front end of 2012-13 models converted to the American front end as per the Aussie 2011 model? I ask because it looks like 2014+ Aussie models will have the American front end with the two hooks. That leaves us 2012-13 model owners out on a limb with potentially fewer after-market choices in the future not to mention only one lousy little hook.

Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

BobT. In my correspondence with Uneek4x4, they indicated they would be looking into front recovery hooks as part of the bullbar development. They are also working
on rock sliders/steps ($750 estimate) with production of all likelyabout June this year.
Fingers crossed.

Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

I know this has been a slightly dated thread, but I stumbled over this website here
Jeep Grand Cherokee bumper kits, WK2... 2011, 2012, 2013
and some of the ware is not to foul certainly why not having a look, ARB isn't the only mob that does those bull bas and accessories.
Sure coming from OS might cost a premium but ....

Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

Rocky Road are looking into making their bumper kit fit MY12 and MY13 Australian Grands. Whether it will ever happen is anybody's guess.

They look nice, not intrusive & bulky, hope they do one for the MY14

Ok, I dont know why's hat would be and ( at least from the outside ) it looks ok
at least.

I would not know where to start to even attempt to fit one myself, but they can fit it to a GC wk2 there, would be interesting to see if it could be fitted on an aussie MY12. Maybe modified..if need be.

You have come to the party late.

The chassis structure at the front of the Australian GC is different to the USA chassis.

This is also why your GC has not got the twin recovery hooks like the USA models. I think RR were considering doing a kit to suit Australian GC, but maybe they wont bother now that the MY14 has been released

They do look nice, but no animal strike protection, also they don't have Australian crash testing approval, so your insurance company would have a field day if you had a front end bingle
