Parking Sensor Compatibility
Through careful engineering & testing we’ve delivered a nudge bar that is compatible with parking sensors on most WK2 models.
Excellent Approach Angle
Since our design doesn’t extend below the mounting brackets, the approach angle (an important aspect off-road) is significantly better than other nudge bars.
Our innovative mounting system uses tapered steel tabs to lock the bar securely to 20mm high-strength steel mounting arms like a lug nut locks a wheel to a car. This high-strength design means there will be minimal vibrations for your accessories when you’re off-road.
Highly Scratch Resistant
By using 304 Stainless Steel (which has a higher hardness rating than Aluminium) we’re able to provide a nudge bar with much better scratch & wear resistance.
Low Installed Weight
Only 10.6kg when fully installed. This is extremely light when compared to a Bull Bar which often weighs 40kgs (alloy) – 90kgs (steel).
Accommodates Numerous Lighting & Accessory Options
The accessory mounting tab is slotted across it’s entire length, allowing you to install lights or accessories however you choose.
Contoured To Fit
The accessory mounting tab is contoured to match the curvature of the WK2 grille, so it integrates perfectly with the front of the WK2.
Compatible With Front Recovery Points
Can be installed with Chief Products WK2 Recovery Hooks & WK2 Recovery Points, (which can be installed on driver & passenger sides and are engineer rated to 4,500kg [1.5 GVM]). Due to mounting restrictions, many nudge bars don’t allow you to install any front recovery points with their bar.
Compatible With Adaptive Cruise Control
Through careful engineering & testing we’ve delivered a nudge bar that is compatible with the adaptive cruise control system on all WK2 models.
Guards Against Damage During Recovery
The mounting brackets are designed to stop recovery straps or bow shackles from hitting the bar during an off-road recovery.
Easy To Install
We provide easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions. If you’re half-way decent with a wrench you can easily install this yourself. We’ve even designed the mounting brackets so they swivel slightly during installation to make things as easy as possible.
Industry Leading Corrosion Protection
We utilise E-Coat (Electrophoretic Coating) on the mounting arms and bracketry to provide the very highest corrosion protection available for steel automotive parts. Deposited from a water-based solution using a high voltage DC charge, the process coats all wet surfaces with an extremely tough and highly corrosion resistant finish that is unlike any other process.
Mirror Polish That Lasts
Our mirror polished 304 Stainless Steel keeps looking good for longer. Polished aluminium bars tend to develop a white haze from oxidation that causes them to lose their lustre.
Top Quality Finishing Touches
We include all the details that matter. Heavy Duty Powder Coating on all mounting plates. High tensile bolts for maximum strength. Wedge-Lock washers to create bolted joints that are extremely resistant to loosening. Anti-Seize for bolted joints that are resistant to seizing. A Chief Products Shop Rag for all the dirty jobs around the garage. All packaged with extreme care to arrive safely and looking great
Bolts into existing mounting points in the frame, no drilling or cutting needed.
