As for colours, the options are like Henry Ford once said, "You can have any colour you want as long as it's black.".

Cheers,
Bill
Packaging - Cardboard box.
Instructions - Don't need.
Colour - Don't care!

Hi Bill,
Was hoping for an update - how do the prototypes look/fit/perform?
Thanks

The prototypes have been laser cut and are waiting to be powder coated. I hope to have them this Friday, along with the prototype for the Sump Protection Plate (WK2 Sump Protection Plate).

I'll be sure to post an update for everyone with photos as soon as I have them.

Cheers,
Bill

I'm salivating. Probably setting myself up for a price shock. I sincerely hope not.

I'm seeing more and more pre 2014's non trailhawk have the front(both) recovery hooks.... I'm wondering where these owners source from?

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Apparently there is another letter to the editor in the December 4x4 Australia magazine noting the lack of recovery hooks on the MY14.

Must go and buy a copy....

Save your money! It's only a couple of lines from me. I didn't intend them to publish it. However, there is an interesting response from Jeep where they indicate that a solution will be available later in the month. I wouldn't mind betting they are in negotiations with Chief to supply the Chief recovery hooks at twice the price.

Unfortunately, I believe that you are 100% correct.

Let's see if Jeep Australia can step up and prove us wrong.

Cheers,
Steve

BobT, can you check for me - was it the November or December issue that your letter is published? Thanks.
