Re: WK2 Nudge Bar

ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1425971123.750360.jpg hi, when I asked my dealer about fitting the mopar hooks I got some rubbish about Australian regulations not allowing two hooks on the front of my MY2015 Laredo. In the end they sourced a par of these recovery points, which I think are better than the mopar hooks. They look like they could be yours. If they are then I am excited there may soon be a nudge bar that I could use with them. I'd be happy with the same red colour. My main reason for it is to mount a LED bar. Let us know when it is ready.

Re: WK2 Nudge Bar

Yeah, thats the chief hook. The reason for no mopar hooks isn't regulations about hooks, but the front end of the Australian (and european) cars is slightly different to the american cars to allow for pedestrian impact safety. So the holes don't line up correctly on the mopar hooks. NewZealand GCs are the same as the US at the front, so they do have the hooks. From time to time NZ cars make their way to Australia, so you may still see the odd one with the mopar hook.

Re: WK2 Nudge Bar

That thing is nice. May be my next thing I do. But looks like it would delete the front row hooks for the models that have them.

Re: WK2 Nudge Bar

Yeah, won't work with the US tow hooks. Chief do their own tow hooks, and the nudge bar integrates with them.

Fitment confirmed with the following products:
WK2 Recovery Point(s)
WK2 Recovery Hook(s)
WK2 Sump Protection Plate
WK2 Lower Front Guard

Does NOT fit with the following products:
OEM Tow Hooks (part# 82212095)

Our WK2 Nudge Bar is now available and it fits with our WK2 Recovery Hooks & WK2 Recovery Points.

Cheers,
Bill

Re: WK2 Nudge Bar

Hey Guys,

Chief Products WK2 Nudge Bar is currently in production and will ship out on September 10th. I'm happy to say this has been one of our most popular products ever.

I encourage you to check out the product page on our website, (WK2 Nudge Bar | Chief Products). We've added some great new photos of the product out on the trails as well as a new Benefits tab. Sometimes when you've simplified a product to it's essence, it's not entirely obvious how much work has gone into it. We created the benefits tab to hi-light the design and engineering that went into this product.

To say, "Thank You!" to everyone on the forums I've created a special 5% discount that expires on September 5th. It's good for anyone buying the WK2 Nudge Bar and it gives you 5% off your entire order, (not just the WK2 Nudge Bar) so if you've been wanting to pick up WK2 Recovery Points, WK2 Sump Protection Plate or even a WK2 Lower Front Guard this is a great time. We're a small company that doesn't offer many discounts, but I wanted to do something for the forum members here. Enter discount code (5D-0829) at checkout before September 5th and you'll receive a 5% discount off your entire order.

If you've got any technical questions or you're just looking for some behind the scenes info, feel free to shoot them at me. I'll do my best to answer them. Everyone here on the forums seems to be passionate WK2 owners and I want to give you guys something a little more than the average Joe on the street.

I hope that helps!

Cheers,
Bill

Here's a photo I haven't posted on the website. It was taken at sunset out at City View 4WD Park in Beaudesert.

You're welcome! Until we get our North American warehouse and webstore setup, I'm trying to help our North American customers with the shipping as much as I can.

If you're located in USA you can use the following discount code at checkout for 14% off. We're also testing out a new international shipping provider, so if you contact us direct we can probably get you slightly cheaper shipping, (i.e. sea freight rates, but instead of 2-3 months delivery, delivery in 5-7 days).

DISCOUNT CODE = USAdiscount-NB

With the current exchange rate at $1USD to $0.715AUD, it is certainly helping our USA customers.

I hope that helps! As Always, if there's anything you need, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Cheers,
Bill
