Hi Aslan,

If you're curious, I'll be posting photos and updates for the WK2 Lower Front Guard in this thread, (WK2 Lower Front Guard). There are a few photos there already.

Unfortunately our hands are full at the moment and the WK2 Pre-Runner (which is a replacement for the lower front fascia) will not be ready until Q1 2015. I'll start a thread with more info in the new year.

Cheers,
Bill

Re: Need WK2s for Product Test Fitting (Gold Coast & Brisbane)

Hey Guys,

The test fitting went really well.

It's always great meeting other passionate WK2 owners. We had a lot of products to test fit so it was mostly business, but there was time for a few laughs.

I'll be posting more in-depth updates in each of the product threads, but here's a quick update on each of the products.

The WK2 Transmission Protection Plate is ready to go.

We're very close with the WK2 Lower Front Guard, but it still needs a few tweaks so that everything fits perfectly.

The WK2 Nudge Bar looks great but needs a bit more work to be ready for production. I'm hoping for a launch before the holidays, but with the supplier delays we encountered, there's a good chance it won't be ready until Q1 of 2015.

Cheers,
Bill

Here's a few photos from the test fitting.

Thanks Bill

When you say "The WK2 Transmission Protection Plate is ready to go"
How long will it be before we can actually pick one up?
And any indication on pricing?

Fitted the Mopar plates on Saturday and could not believe this area was left unprotected between 2 plates?

Cheers

Mark

Hey Mark,

I'm sending it off for production this week while we prepare everything for sale, (website, product photography, packaging, install instructions, etc.). I expect we'll be releasing pricing & taking orders in the next few days and shipping the product before the end of the month.

If you're curious check out our website. I'll be adding more information over the next week or so.

Cheers,
Bill

Re: Need WK2s for Product Test Fitting (Gold Coast & Brisbane)

Thanks again Bill

I did look at your website before I asked the question however there aint a lot of information there at the moment.
Glad to here it will be getting updated in the near future and the product is very close to release

Would be really nice to close that hole left by the Mopar Plates

Re: Need WK2s for Product Test Fitting (Gold Coast & Brisbane)

Hey Guys,

Our next test fitting is Saturday Nov 22nd (8am-11am) at Opposite Lock in Nerang. If you've got a MY11 WK2 and you're willing to come down and join us, please let me know.

Unfortunately, the 2011 at our last test fitting turned out to be a 2012 model that was purchased in 2011.

If you're able to come down and help, I'll be giving a $100 Gift Card to everyone who participates.

Cheers,
Bill

Hi Gerry,

Yes we definitely still need you! With your MY15 WK2, we can confirm MY15 fitment as well as fitment on WK2s with the ACC Camera.

Cheers,
Bill

Re: Need WK2s for Product Test Fitting (Gold Coast & Brisbane)

Hey Guys,

I still need a MY11 WK2 or a MY13 Trailhawk to finish up the test fitting for a few of our products. If you have one of the these and are located near the Gold Coast, please let me know. I'll be sure to make it worth your while.

We've got a test fitting scheduled for this Saturday 8am-11am at Opposite Lock in Nerang, but I can schedule a special test fit for a MY11 WK2 if required.

Cheers,
Bill
