Re: Front skid plate for WK2?

All seems good as far as fitment, I will drive it this week and make sure there are no issues. Attachment points will need upgrading and counter sunk bolts on the crossmember to stop anything from snagging. Let me know what you think.

Cheers

Re: Front skid plate for WK2?

Looks awesome to me mate - I'd be very happy to purchase one of those - providing ARB don't bring out a replacement front bar in the mean time!

Do you have any 'front on' photos?

Can't wait to hear how the test drive goes ...

Looks good. I'd be interested if you come up with something a bit more secure for attaching it at the front.

Re: Front skid plate for WK2?

That winch has been mentioned before. Problem is that it requires both Recovery Hook connections, something which Jeep removed from Aussie bound cars. ^%$^#@@$
There is still also a question on whether it works with the radar sensor.

Re: Front skid plate for WK2?

Obviously the skid plate doesn't work with the ACC radar sensor lol. But the bumper kit does work now. It says on their website.

Re: Front skid plate for WK2?

not quite. It says it will work on a MY11 ( that came with 2 recovery hooks) but still will not work with a MY11-12-13 which did not come with both recovery hooks.
I sure hope they develop one to fit these, as I need a winch.
