where did you buy it from? (RRO)

From RRO directly. Cheaper than buying it from businesses selling it here.

Did you have many dramas from them? Have read a bit that they have poor customer service and that the bar does not fit 100%.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

I have read that too, however no major dramas for me, they can take a while to respond to email (they will eventually get to it) but if you just pickup the phone they are very helpful.

Did take a couple of weeks from when i ordered it before it was sent as they had a back log of orders. However they sent it on a Thursday and it arrived the Monday after.

I still havent got the pictures off the camera however the fitment was fine. The bar actually requires an additional 2 nuts and bolts per side to be added and another self-threading bolt straight in to the horn (imperial sized so did have to go out and buy a 5/16inch drill bit for that).

Aligning the ACC radar took the most amount of time as it requires putting the front bumper back on and off again to test fit.

And if you look closely at that pic, it seems they have a lower radiator guard being developed too....

Photos show how the RRO fairlead hole is in the wrong place on the 2014+ models. I will be drilling 2 new holes to mount the fairlead slightly lower down and behind the lower fascia.
