That should be "photos of it on a GC", also the bar will come with a front bash plate

From what I saw it looked pretty good and solid. Would love to know how it works with the parking sensors and things.
If you want to see a great bull bar designed for a WK2 lookup UNEEK 4 x 4. They have just designed one with WK2 owners advice and it looks great

Re: WK2 Bullbar spotted in Sydney

I contacted ARB again in regards to the bullbar and was told that they were buying a 2014 Grand which would arrive in the next couple of weeks and wanted to check if the bar they designed would suit it.. So, does that mean that if it does not suit the '12 that they will modify their design and release it purely for the '14?!?! Smells shafty..

Re: WK2 Bullbar spotted in Sydney

Probably means, like any good business, they wish to capitalise on their investment, and make a bar that is usable on all year models, rather than only on a few.

Re: WK2 Bullbar spotted in Sydney

"Just to clear this up, we are definitely designing for the 2012 and the updated 2014 models."

"We fitted a prototype bar to a 2012 Overland last week and will be testing with our 2014 update when it arrives in the next few weeks."

"Once we've had a look at the updated model, we'll determine if one bar will be able to cater for both models or whether we'll need to have 2 separate bars."

Cheers, Sam.

Thanks for clearing that up Doc.
Can't wait to see some pictures. Just confusing/frustrating because I am getting different answers from different people from within ARB..

Re: WK2 Bullbar spotted in Sydney

So it is not going to fit the 2011 model!! with the longer chassis rails.

Re: WK2 Bullbar spotted in Sydney

I called ARB and got they have not tested it on a 2011 model year.
So I don't think we will get one.
They could not tell me if they would look at making mounting adaptor for a 2011.
Suppose we are paying the penalty for getting in early.
I asked if they are going to do one for the US market but they would not confirm.
I believe the US Jeeps still have the same chassis as the AUS 2011

Yep Dave from Uneek 4x4 has done a great job, he has listen to ideas from WK2 owners and made a bar that looks good on the GC, I've put in my order for a colour matched bright silver full top hoop to go on our CRD Laredo

Re: WK2 Bullbar spotted in Sydney

While I can appreciate the work that has been done by Uneek and no doubt it will do the job, it in no way enhances or suits the look of the GC IMHO. But it's not as if we are spoilt for choice.

Cheers
