WK2 Owners Unite! -- We NEED aftermarket support

We need more companies to provide support for our platform.

I have contacted ARB and have been provided this link to petition ARB Senior Management to begin supporting the WK2 platform:
http://www.arb.com.au/contact/international/

Below is the message I left for them, but you may leave one in your own words (or just copy and paste mine):

"Please begin providing support for the Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 platform. I appreciate the great products you produce, but unfortunately I have learned that they are not available for 2011-12 Jeep Grand Cherokees. Our community is eagerly awaiting lift, roof rack, snorkel, steel bumper and locking diff options for our platform.
Thank you!"

The ARB Representative that I spoke to stated that the corporate executives in Australia would probably consider looking at producing accessories for our Truck, if they were to receive 500+ messages.

I actually called them (arb) and begged for the ETA for front bumper (offered to prepay).

Re: WK2 Owners Unite! -- We NEED aftermarket support

Hey ilber, I offered to pay for a custom lift from them too. They did the 2" lift on the Mopar 'Mountain Edition' from last year's SEMA and I WANT it really bad. They politely refused and offered the above link instead as a way to petition for a publicly offered option. I know Rocky Road Outfitters offers a 2-1/2 inch spacer lift, but my local lift installer said that rocky-road.com products were of lesser quality and that, although they would install it, they would not guarantee the outcome. In addition to the lift, we need steel bumper, roof rack, snorkel and locking differential options.

Re: WK2 Owners Unite! -- We NEED aftermarket support

Picked this off the AU section of this forum from Deserthucker. He received the following from ARB on 11/3 (emphasis mine):

Historically there has been very low demand for Jeep Grand Cherokee products. Engineering time is limited and there have been many new model vehicles consuming that time. Between this and the historically low demand the Grand Cherokee has not made it to the top of the priority list.

You will be happy to know we are discussing the Grand Cherokee and at least some product development is likely to start in the first quarter of next year. Unfortunately at this early stage I can’t comment on what products will become available and on what time line, except to say there appears to be more interest in this new model Grand Cherokee than previous models.

Kind regards.

Re: WK2 Owners Unite! -- We NEED aftermarket support

Here is a bar available in Australia for the WK2.

http://www.ecb.com.au/vehicle.php?Ma...SEARCH2=SEARCH.

Had the silver hammertone before and it looks great. Although I'm not 100% sold on the look yet..
