Help with ARB from our US counterparts

Hi all.

I'm basically posting this to see if some of you WK2 owners in the US could help us Aussie owners with getting ARB to fast track the development of a front bar for the WK2?

Here's a standard reply from ARB Australia when we enquire about this bar which was supposed to be ready mid year 2012.

'Thank you for your enquiry to ARB and your interest in our products.

At this stage ARB is intending to develop a bar for the Jeep Cherokee.

Unfortunately our engineering department is suffering under the sheer volume of projects and vehicle updates.

I am not able to provide a date for availability, however I can confirm it is on the shortlist of projects yet to commence.

I hope this assists you.'

So, I was hoping that anyone who was interested in a new front bar for the WK2, could simply contact ARB in the US (through their website) and enquire as to when you can expect to see it.

I figure that if they get enough enquiries from a market as large as yours, it might push them to get it out that little bit sooner.

Any assistance from the land of the free and home of the brave is greatly appreciated by us WK2 owners down here is Oz.

Cheers,

Clarkey.

Re: Help with ARB from our US counterparts

Should not be difficult, I've had a bar made by a different supplier while I waited but they had my car as a template. Maybe they do not have one to use as a sample ?

They're a big company so I'd imagine they would have a template vehicle but you never know I guess.

Do you have a pic of your bar that you can post?
