Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

I would suspect the delay and lack of committment may be due to Jeep's continual change to the chassis/bodywork.
eg. MY11 had recovery hooks and longer chassis, MY12 No hooks and shortened chassis, MY13 mixture of MY11 and MY12, MY14, Different bumper.
For anyone to setup a bullbar, they need to try to either make a bar for each MY year, or make a bar for just one of those MY's.

I've been thinking that for a while but didn't want to be the one to let the cat out of the bag . They would struggle to recover design costs for a bull bar to fit a front end that had a life of only two years and low numbers at that. The way to go may be to make a universal WK2 bull bar with adaptors for the varying front ends. Are you listening ARB?

Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

ECB didn't have any problem doing two and I imagine their hard work will pay off with the reversion to the old chassis rails.

I think they look quite good as well.

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
Hey this is just not the case. I am based in Melbourne Australia and I have fitted the full winch setup. Was an easy DIY project. Did it over a weekend. I have the v8 limited and it fitted perfect. Re shipping cost it was actually quite reasonable. I got the smittybilt winch imported as well. Was alot cheaper than buying it in aust.

As you can see it has been put to use.

I should clarify - the MY12 has a different chassis - yours seems to be a MY11 with the two recovery hooks. Correct?

Your setup looks very good, the envy of plenty here I suspect.

Yep that's right. I have a MY11. I would ask rocky road outfitters about fitting to your MY12. I think you may be surprised . Could be wrong though.

Re: ARB Bullbar Delayed

The latest update has a message on Facebook asking for a loaner to test their bar on.
