He did send me a bulletin that has part numbers for recovery hook and nudge bars, but it doeant help me at the moment.
Any chance you could let me know the part number for the nudge bar fitting kit if it is on that bulletin???

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

frog a lot - seems your image of the TSB did not load up.

Does it have the part number for the nudge bar?

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

So does this mean we can have a nudge bar and hook, or am I reading that wrong?

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

I have emailed the part numbers to a couple of dealers but niether is able to tell me if it is the "new" nudge bar with recovery points. No one seems able to get a picture of the part corresponding to the part number.

They are following up and I'll let you all know if I get any confirmation.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

I still can't get an estimated time for the nudge bar brackets, rang up yesterday and they are still saying 6 weeks. Getting quite annoyed now.

I was in a Perth 4WD store the other day and they were fitting an ARB bull bar to a WK2 and informed me that it incorporated front tow hooks. I understand that it was the top of the range model Overlander, but suits all models.

Hey Egalitarian,

Are you sure it was an ARB bar and not one from ECB? From all the correspondence on all the forums I've seen and contact from ARB itself, ARB still haven't developed one for the WK2 yet and probably won't until later in the year.

However, if you've seen one then this could be HUGE!

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

I was wondering if anyone had heard any more about the nudge bar (with recovery points) being released by Jeep Aust. I sent details to 3 dealers around two weeks ago but havn't had any sensible reply.

Anyone heard anything recently....?
