Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

Why is that ARB is taking so long with this ?
But they can have a new bull bar out on a japanise vehcile almost the week it is released for sale.

Grand cherokee was the second highest sales in the 4x4 wagon caterogy last month so it is not for lack of sales

Just lack of will i would say

Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

so any Brush or Bull bar with or without Winch is actually not available in Australia at this stage, because ARB and/or their counterparts are busy doing Nippon car Bars as priority.... now that's a bit disappointing, for a Monday morning.

It looks like the Aussie MY14 has reverted to the American build as was the Aussie MY11 so there shouldn't be a problem, fingers crossed.

I think you'll find it's a numbers game. There would be a very high percentage of GCs which will be Toorak tractors. The demand for a bullbar is relatively low compared to utes and other 4wd wagons. The GC just doesn't have the same target demographic. That said, I wish they'd pull their finger out. It looks like Uneek will be getting my moolah at this point.

Latest news from ARB

Hi Correy, thanks for the nice feedback on the Rosehill show. The Grand Cherokee bar is currently being crash beam tested and design is in the final stages. The bar will incorporate provision for factory sensors and the radar. At this stage, nothing is in the pipeline for a rear bar and rear bar tyre carrier.
Cheers

Sent a mail to arb to enquire. They could not tell me when it would be done, and the lead time long compared to others due to a number of new features....
