I reckon the AEV bar is road-legal, as is the Mopar.

All the others have recovery points on the front face of the bar - a big no-no these days. It's not an ADR-issue, it's a roadworthy ( RTA in NSW ) issue.

I agree with you salesguy!!

I mean HOW COULD THIS...

MOPAR



be more ADR compliant than THIS???

AEV



To me this one looks like the safer bar as it almost goes up to the guards, incorporates the standard fog lights, has the crush cans, and is air bag compliant. (Not saying the Mopar one doesn't but this one fills the same criteria plus more!)

The AEV one also looks like it sits up a little higher too.

(Maybe i am just trying to justify it to myself as I really like the look of the AEV bar)

Could you not just fit a couple of rubber bumperettes over the recovery points for rego inspection purposes (and thats not going to happen to any JK for the first 3 years even in NSW).

I would have thought the ARB Bar will be very similar to the AEV bar! I would wait for the ARB one....

I really like the AEV bar, Mopar should have bought the rights to this one instead of developing their own. I reckon I could sell the AEV bar 10:1 over the Mopar bar.
But dealing with AEV has proved to be impossible, I think they have waaaay too much on their plate and simply can't keep up.

Yeah, I rang them in early May, they said they won't ship to Australia and that there was about 6-8 weeks wait on the bars. Don't know if they changed this policy or not since then.

If you want to save some money you can buy the AEV without the winch mount from http://www.customjeepwranglers.com/jkfrontbumper.html I dont need the winch mount so this is looking like a good option.

All USD

Bar: $799
Tow hooks: $99
Winchmount: $249
Skidplate: $299
