Need WK2s for Product Test Fitting (Gold Coast & Brisbane)
 
I'm happy to announce Chief Products is ready to do a test fitting for 3 of our new products. The WK2 Recovery Hooks, WK2 Recovery Points and WK2 Sump Protection Plate.

Test Fitting Details
Date: Jan 25th
Time: 8am - Noon
Location:
Opposite Lock
2/26 Spencer Rd.
Nerang, QLD 4211
07 5596 4886

I've got a few test vehicles organised, but I still need 1 of each of the following vehicles:
MY11 WK2
MY14 WK2
WK2 Trailhawk

We're also interested in anyone that has an ARB or Uneek Bull Bar, so we can see if our products are compatible.

If you're interested and can make it on that date, please PM me. It's first in, first served. Each participant will go home with a $100 gift card, as our way of saying thank you.

If you've got a WK2 that's not on the list, you're still more than welcome to come down and have a look, ask questions, provide feedback and meet a few of the other SE QLD WK2 owners. We'll have our company vehicle there and I might even discuss a few of the products we have in development.

Cheers,
Bill

Bill,

Please send a "Sump Protection Plate" over to California and I'll give ya a full report (with pics) on the removal of the OEM piece, installation of your new bash plate, and do a thorough test/evaluation up in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and out in the Nevada desert!

Test vehicle will be a '13 WK2 Trailhawk.

XJ97SPORT,

I love your Trailhawk. Great photos!

I may take you up on your offer. I'd like to know how our products fit the Trailhawk and the US models. Unfortunately the Trailhawks are pretty rare here in Australia. I think there was only a limited run of about 400.

I did get to do a bit of 4Wheeling with one on the annual 'Indepedents Day' run (for independent suspension Jeeps on July 4th). But he's up north several hours and only comes down occasionally.

Thanks for the offer, I'll keep your name on our test fitting list.

Cheers,
Bill

BobT,

Definitely need to keep the missus happy. :) Have fun in Adelaide.

Can you PM me your contact details, (name, address, email & phone)? If you decide to order our hooks, I've got something I'd like to send you.

Cheers,
Bill

If you are interested, I might be interested on trying out the sump plate. I am in the US and have a 2014 JGC Overland. I would need some more details (difficulty of the install, ability to reattach the fascia, maybe some others) before giving a definite answer (if you take me up on the offer.

Hey Guys,

Unfortunately we've had to move the test fitting from Saturday Jan 25th to Saturday Feb 1st. It seems everyone is taking advantage of the long weekend and heading off somewhere fun in their WK2s, which leaves us without a few models for our test fitting.

Here are the new details...

Hey!

The test fitting went great! Everything bolted up exactly as it should on all models tested. Installation was extremely easy. We start production next week. :)

Thank you to everyone who participated! Your help was greatly appreciated!

Here are a few photos. Please keep in mind, the photos show prototypes that aren't ready for sale, they're just bare steel. The final production pieces will be zinc primed for corrosion protection and then powder coated in black.
