WK2 Nudge Bar

Here's a sneak peek at our new Nudge Bar. This product wasn't initially at the top of our list, because there are already a few in the marketplace. But after some long chats with customers and a lot of requests, we decided we might be able to offer something that wasn't already available.

Here's a 3D rendering in Satin Black.


FEATURES
  • Fits with our WK2 Recovery Hooks & WK2 Recovery Points.
  • 4 tabs for lights and aerials.
  • Compatible with parking sensors, (still testing)
  • Available in Satin Black or Stainless Steel.

I don't have any pricing yet, but I'm hoping to have our first prototype in the next few weeks for in-the-field testing.

I look forward to hearing everyone's feedback.

Cheers,
Bill

Re: WK2 Nudge Bar

Looks good, what's it made off?
Do you have a rough projected price?

Hey Snuke,

We're currently planning to make the bar out of 2.5" Stainless Steel tubing, with corresponding Stainless Steel bracketry. It will be mounted to the vehicle via a 20mm steel plate (zinc undercoated & black powder coated) and 10.9 grade bolts.

I don't have pricing yet, but I'll be sure to post an update when I do.

Cheers,
Bill

Re: WK2 Nudge Bar

I realised yesterday that the 3D render I posed earlier is not correct. I believe we accidentally placed a Nudge Bar for a 2012 on the front of a 2014. I attempted to update my original post, but no luck.

I also realised I didn't post a link to the product on our website. If you're interested in knowing more about this product when it's released, jump onto our website and enter your email address.

Here is the correct 3D render for a 2014 WK2. As you can see the Nudge Bar goes up a bit higher on a 2014 WK2, and will not obscure the license plate.

Re: WK2 Nudge Bar

Hey Guys,

A quick update on our WK2 Nudge Bar. We've finalised the first round of 3D models and engineering drawings. The first prototype is being built now and will hopefully be available for in-the-field testing soon.

Cheers,
Bill
