You are right Adam
A month ago when my recovery hook was supplied by the dealer (at no charge) i was surprised when I opened the box to find just the hook and no bracket.....on checking the instructions the hook was for the nudge bar.
They swapped it for the hook with the bracket.
It has been previously posted in the front recovery hook thread somewhere that there are 2 part numbers for the hook, 1 for the hook with the bracket, 1 for the hook that just bolts to the nudge bar.
For (useless) info the hook and bracket are made by Best Bars in NZ - suppliers of the Mopar tow bar.

These drongos are not only stupid, they are downright dangerous.

The nudge bar looks great! I like the way it follows the lines on the grill.

Just thought of an issue. The bumper cover is designed to be relatively easily removed to for serious off-road work. I guess that is no longer feasible with the nudge bar. It's no big deal but needs to be considered.

Re: Ndge Bar Brackets Have FINALLY Arrived

Also appears that nudgebar is not compatible with those having front sensors.
I also note that the bar has no brackets for attaching lights or aerials. ...pity.

Not Yet.... Give me until sunday i have a mate going to tig weld 3 brackets onto it, 2 for spotlights and i for UHF antenna.

Nudge bar is held on by 4 bolts. once removed you can slide the lower skirt over the brackets.

Re: Ndge Bar Brackets Have FINALLY Arrived

As promised. Here is the instruction manual, Pretty basic. Interestingly we are meant to cut out the recovery hook and tow point caps. the instructions say cut 20mm off the side but i think i may be a little more precise than that and actually just trim of what i need so i get a nice snug ( Original Accessory) look.

Re: Ndge Bar Brackets Have FINALLY Arrived

Those instructions mention parking sensors while Mopar's site states the bar is not suitable for front sensors. Am I confused?

Re: Ndge Bar Brackets Have FINALLY Arrived

That's what i thought when i read them too? Perhaps it won't adjust enough to be out of the way? I don't have sensors so i can't say either way.

Re: Ndge Bar Brackets Have FINALLY Arrived

Gday Magoomba
off topic I know, but from my experience Kerrys is hopeless....they are also being bashed on the Aus Caravaners forum.
Anyway - re your filters - there is an alternative CRD Filters
I purchased filters to suit our WK2 CRD and more than happy with the goods, price and transaction.
(and there are 2 fuel filters...)
John
PS. Bugger - just checked the links in the other topic and they don't link to the actual part for some reason - only to a page - if you input the part numbers they will come up.

John, thanks for that. I'm not happy with them. I get the feeling they would rather brush my problems aside and hope i move on.

Re: Nudge Bar Brackets Have FINALLY Arrived

Install is now complete.

I have ran the put the relay next to the fuse box and managed to use an empty spot in the small fuse box behind the main fuse box, Took the back cover off and installed another spade connection and bought a fusible link so it looks standard. Just got to find one that looks a bit better than the big ugly pink one.

Had a mate tig weld the tabs onto the bar for me. ran all the wiring took it out for a test.

One picture is of the highbeams and the other is with the spot lights assisting. The spotlights i used were Lightforce XGT's with a genuine 70w HID kit in each light. Can't wait to take her out on a long drive and test it out properly.
