Re: Bullbar coming

Works if you copy and paste it. Had to wait til I got home because I couldn't do it on my iPhone.

I see a hole in the bullbar, but the ACC sensor appears to be recessed. Will this not have an effect on its performance?

Re: Bullbar coming

I was talking to the guy at the ECB stand at last weekends Melbourne 4X4/Fishing/Camping Show and He mentioned that the ECB Boss had just bought a new WK2. Somewhat wondering if the pic is of His Jeep.

Re: Bullbar coming

Now why couldn't they have made uprights of the centre tubular member, vertical to line up with the grill. It would have looked so much better, like a Jeep in fact.

Re: Bullbar coming

I'm with Bob, I think it lacks "Jeep" aesthetics, it almost defaces it. Not sure how much time was spent on the look IMHO. It almost looks like a rework from another make / model 4X4.

Studgun's could also be right, the ACC looks like it may be hindered.

BTW, my ACC picked up a cat crossing the road last night which was at least 15m away......I tried hard but missed it!

Haha. A few police cars have had their wheel alignment thrown out jumping kerbs after cats. Lucky we drive Hiluxes and not Falcodores here.

Re: Bullbar coming

I'd say they'd all be pretty much feral up there! The wheel alignments would be a small price to pay for the community and environment services alone! I hear they make excellent wheel chocks.....

Re: Bullbar coming

On pages 21 and 81 of the October issue of 4X4 Australia, there are full page adds featuring ECB Bullbars. The photo they use to show off the bullbars is of a red WK2, Laredo I think, it doesn't have the ACC hole. The Toyan crowd will be pissed.

Re: Bullbar coming

I know it is each to their own, but I cant help thinking how much Jeep spend to get the thing looking good, we all by one because its asthetically pleasing etc then put a diabolical hunk of alloy on the front end and make it hardly recognisable, sorry I dont like it and agree with others that they could have done a lot better..
