Guess I'll find out..I'm adding Bullbar & Winch, Long Range Tank, Rock Sliders, Front Lower Bash Plate & Snorkel..Similar setup to what I have on my Laredo. long range tank will balance out the winch.. Well that's the theory...

I've put my order in already for all this kit except my mate (ARB Agent) was at an ARB meeting this arvo and said he was going to ask questions & get back to me on it...Guess he'll call me tomorrow.

Also ARB bar & Winch...One of my mates has 85,000km on his WK2 with air suspension with bar & winch and says no issue..never had one..all good.. I toured with him up the OTT and he made it look easy..nothing stopped the WK2s.BTW hill decent is excellent when going down steep inclines

just curious when adding bash plates and underbody protection why people don't go the whole hog and do it properly and get the mopar set as well . Look underneath and look at the wiring loom and how exposed it is :P

Quick update on the Trailhawk ARB bar...Mate (ARB Agent) called today (been to an ARB meeting) and say that the issues with fitting and current ARB are the Radar Cruise and Parking Sensors. Apparently, there are differences that need to be addressed with the current WK2 bar....ARB is now doing a parking sensor adapter bracket which is good for those like me who are not getting the Adaptive Cruise Control. ARB needs a vehicle with the radar to do something to fit it so guess that will happen very soon.

I was a bit disappointed with what the Mopar set missed to be honest...

Yep Jeep bash plate covers most of the underbody but that plastic part at the front cross-member is crap and why the UNeek offering or Chief front bash plate is a must..Have a look on my site for pics of what happens when the plastic hits ..Tends to crack and bend up into the fan.

it misses a transmission plate which i agree is stupid but it covers tanks, front axle and wiring loom . i've already taken a good bang to the left fuel tank and wiring loom plates

Any idea if the Uneek front bash plate install would be affected by the ARB bar?
I had a look underneath the Trailhawk in the showroom and noticed the plastic front bash plate as well... whats that about???

Picking it up Tuesday!!!

Inclusions: Rubber mats including boot, window tint, mud flaps, towbar with brake controller, cargo barrier
