That used to be so but all the electronics on the modern engines have put paid to that.... diesel or petrol....

Just need the thumper to turn up and then next week off to dargo and whistlers rest.
When the spots were installed ore were not able to hook them into the high beam supply due to the canbus wiring so they are manual on off only, anyone have any ideas how this could be resolved. Thanks
Could they not run a wire down to the lights, Hmmm i hope someone can find a solution to this, Perhaps Magoomba can shine some light on this when he gets his car. If not i will have a look into it when i do my install. I have the same smoothtalker cardle and RFI antenna, can you post some pics of your install when you get a chance.

Cheers,

Hi Hickers any pics of your installs ?
Don't know about else were but in the NT spot lights have to be wired to go off when you dip to low beam, as far as I would be concerned ore have made your GC unroad worthy and you could be defected, I would not of paid for the spot light install

Re: WK2 Snorkel

It is true that spots need to dip on the high beam stalk switch, it also needs its own switch to isolate them. BUT...how often do you see a 2011+ model doing a road worthy. In NSW we do not need a pink slip for the first 3 years, in QLD and VIC I think you only need them once you sell the car.

Re: WK2 Snorkel

How do you find the bar fits to the car. Does it stick out a fair way from the bumper? I was looking at getting an Ecb bar but might wait till arb brings one out. Would you get the bar again if you had a choice.

Re: WK2 Snorkel

yes i would fit it again and it adds very little overall length to the jeep, finish is good, you can still access the tow hooks and the plate underneath matches up well with the mopar skid plates so the underneath is much better protected.

Re: WK2 Snorkel

Couldnt you have at least used some stainless!? You'd give the poor man who designed the interior a heart attack if you showed him that pic.

Re: WK2 Snorkel

Used what I got. Painted who would know.
The flash makes it look lighter but it is a close match to the leather dash.
