    Feedback? Yeah. Nice bar but expensive. My Opposite Lock bar looks almost the same, is just as well made and cost me $800 less than the ARB I was quoted.

    With bar alone it's touch and go whether you need to upgrade the suspension. If you add a winch it's almost mandatory. Improved ride and handling are the bonuses.

      Another happy OL owner here. I'm not sure what type NFT5 has, but mine is the 3 loop and I can't fault it. Decent access for when I fit a winch, awesome fit (fitted by BGs Automotive/Opposite Lock Queanbeyan) and looks tough. I'm the same, didn't want to spend the extra dollars simply for the ARB name. Check out my rig thread for photos if you're interested.

        Had an ARB fitted this past week, colour coded to match my NW Pajero and looks great, installed medium duty springs and struts but I needed them for my heavy towing anyway plus the weight of the full steel bar. Handles really well. Google youtube for the video on how they make them - it's very interesting and helps you understand the quality and price.

            I have an ARB Deluxe bar fitted color coded to the Pajero, Looks great & is the 3rd I have fitted to my various 4WD's. They are rock solid & have saved my vehicles from Roo & Emu damage a number of times with not a scratch at 100+ kmh. The only downside was that ARB had 3 attempts to colour match the Pearl White & it took me nearly 4 months to get it finished to my satisfaction. If you do go ARB make sure they get the paint shop to properly color match it & not rely on the paint code on the ID plate.

                Hi peter you should feel pretty lucky that ARB colour matched your bar as bars should only ever be colour coded I say this as I use to work for ARB and matching is unheard of. What I would say is that you may not have had a good batch of paint or worse that the paint was not weighed and mixed corecctly.

                  Hi Brad, Unfortunately the first bar was stark white & not Pearl Warm White & on collecting the vehicle they mixed up the colour code off the VIN. The second time was closer & clearly different from the rest of the car, All they did was add Pearl to the stark white. To ensure that they didn't make a 3rd mistake ARB had me run the original bumper down to their paint shop so they could match it. All good in the end & ARB heavily discounted the bar price for all my troubles. Will still use them as it is not the mistake but how you deal with it that matters & they dealt with it well.

                    Hi Anhie, I had ARB fit their replacement headlight washer nozzles, Not because I needed or wanted them but really to fill the holes left in the bar if not fitted.

                      Aaahhh, Peter, I think I bumped in to you outside ARB Ossie Park one day, several months back. I had just ordered my (plain) white bar and took a pic of your rig to show my wife. If it wasn't you, then there is someone else out there with a white pearl Paj with the same issue! :-)

                        I'm waiting on mine to be delivered ordered it a week and a half ago. Apparently was the last NW one they had in stock till the next batch is made.

                          Had mine fitted last week by ARB Canningvale, the cut on the inner guard liner could have been better and they didn't put the two front bolts in for the Bushskinz inter cooler guard. Also found a spare mounting bracket they had left up near my air box!

                          Not enough to overly concern me as I think the bar looks great!
