They had one for the previous model and I am sure they can make one up for the new one. Let me know how you go as I will need one down the track.

Same, hoping this is the case.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

yeah I did mean 6sp in the 2012 Hemi, but from the list of changes it is the only thing that is worthwhile in the 2012 model. I expect the 2013 model will have more changes and the 8sp.

How did you go with the towbar install ... is it being done by a Jeep Dealer or after market, whats the chance of a picture or two.

Thanks

I got a hayman and reece bar fitted last week, fits nice with a stainless ring around the box section, matches the rest of the chrome at the back.... they have to cut a 90mm high slot in the rear bar, which I was worried about but it looks good and the electrics are pretty much out of sight below the bumper on the crossbar... I double checked everything before I let 'em cut anything.... good product very happy.... I'll post some photos if I work out how....
