Partially. Well, for me at least. I install what I will use. Yes, debadging is for looks but more for me. I dont like advertising. Those that will appreciate my WK2 for what it is will know what it is without the badges. I don't do nerf bars because they will just get hung up going over obstacles. However, some sliders can be used as steps to aid in reaching the roof rack Ie RRO Super Sliders. Aftermarket wheels are changed because 1. yea they aren't as "cool" but 2. also scuffing them up would be expensive to replace. My wheels were $120 much cheaper than to replace the stock ones. Plus the black hides dirt and grime better keeping me from having to really detail them every week. Bull bars are just expensive hollow tubing that will really not serve a purpose other than pushing lightweight objects out of the way. For the money it is just expensive. Same as the nerf bars. But, most WK2 owners aren't going to be taking theirs off road unlike me.

Sorry. Have to disagree. I have the rr winch and bar setup. It is neat relatively light weight but does the job beautifully.

Lol! Well that's the shoe on the other foot! The number of US companies that insist on US postal addresses is ridic. Even with the AUD being stronger than the USD it's regularly $USD 500 plus to get items shipped down under. Funny thing is comparable (sometimes the same or OEM if not better ) goods ex China are shipped for nought.

Anybody has any experience with them?

At the end of the day you only get what you pay for . The east coast bull bar is a good bar ! A mate has one on his JGC I will not put one on my JGC as it takes away the look of my 70th

Most are for show

They arent going to prevent any damage. The RR bar and winch set up isnt going to stop a roo, deer, cattle or sheep from doing serious damage to your GC.

Here in the US most GC owners may encounter deer. Chances may be better in Australia that you may encounter wildlife or stock.

We see livestock at least once week at our herding lessons or herding trials. If I encounter stock on the road and it would be a rare occasion I am not going to use my GC to move them. If I have my collie I just put on on the long line and let her move them off the road. And if not I have a stock stick in the back and will move the stock off road myself. During the winter months if we are working set out I bring my GC to back of the field as shelter and too keep warm.

Most bull bars are all bull and just extra weight to mess up the handling and ride.

I would agree if you live were you encounter a lot of large animals who cares if it is not appealing to the Mall cruisers it sure beats having a unwanted guest in you Jeep
