Re: WK2 Lower Front Guard

Hi Exposed,

I haven't been able to get my hands on a Summit to check this yet. From my understanding the front fascia is very similar to that of the SRT, and it is not easily removable.

Re: WK2 Lower Front Guard

Hey Bob,

We are currently testing how the guard effects aerodynamics, vehicle cooling (hard when it's cold outside) and wind noise. So far everything looks great!

Those are some great ideas....

Re: WK2 Sump Protection Plate

I can't say for sure, but I think the 3.6L might be accessible in the same spot, making the 5.7L the odd man out. Can anyone confirm?

Re: WK2 Sump Protection Plate

Thanks for the photo. I always wondered what that hole was for! LOL! On the 5.7L the sump plug is not positioned there, so the hole just seems arbitrary.

Re: DEF INJECTOR and Harness protection group buy

I don't believe so, but can someone confirm whether Australian model WK2s are equipped with a DEF Injector? We've got a 5.7L and I can't remember what the CRDs look like underneath.
