Great, thanks for that.I was really happy with the Warn bar on my TJ and was thinking about doing the same to the JK.And now that I know I can keep the stocko towbar, I will be getting some Warn hardware on the rear.

The Warn is a bloody heavy bar btw - I'm not sure what others are like, but its a damn sight heavier than the rugged ridge one i've got on the front.

I put it on a few days before I did the lift (so there was 5 inches less for me to lift to get it over the tow bar) and I could feel the difference when I was driving around - and that was before I put the tyre carrier on it, and I had no spare on the tailgate.

I don't notice it much now that the new springs are in.

The Warn bar I had on the TJ was bloody heavy too.And that was without the stocko towbar.It rode completley different once on the back, mainly coz the springs on the rear were not heavy enough for it.So this time around I'll fit the extra heavy duty springs and hopefully won't have a hopping rear end.

The Warn bar will give you alot of extra clearance offroad.Really good departure angles

Fitted AEV snorkel today. Compared to safari this one really is a self install, especially if you have a mate who is a panel worker and builds sheds. Although it is straight forward I simply didn't have the guts to cut and drill.
