EVERYONE READ!!! We need to get our voices heard!!!

I am extremely interested in ARB producing some products for our Commanders! In that light, I emailed their USA Tech Superrvisor and asked specifically about a bumper/winch bull bar. Here is his response:

Derek, Currently we don't have plans for a Commander bar, but that could changeif we get sufficient response (we really haven't had many requests).Please have the others you know email and request it, this lets our product planners see the potential and will work towards pushing a bar into production.

I pointed out to him that the XK was not on the drop list and that I know a lot of people wanting a bumper with winch. He told me if I could get 250 people that are willing to pay deposit of $400, then he would see if the company would produce the bumper. He does not mean you have to give the money up now, but he needs a list of people that would throw down $400dp to show comment of buying it. He said the full cost of the bumper is unknown, but could in the range $800-1500.

I also talked with AEV and they told me they might revisit the bumpers for the XK after they finish the JK stuff. They said this was not a sure thing and could not commit to any dates.

One thing I do need to know is how many of us "WILL" buy these bumpers/winch mounts and not just say we will. Can we get a poll posted to find out this?
I have tried to get people to speak up and nothing.

Don't count it on AEV. AEV is super swamped with the JK stuff -- a super popular bumper, plus custom builds for customers -- plus their wheels, rebuilding the Nth Mobility line, etc. They have the best intentions but just can't keep up with demand. About the time they get caught up with all of the above, Chrysler will be handing them the specs to the WK/XK replacement(s).

I informed ARB about our site and told them that I have directed inquires their way and here is Marc's response:

Derek,
thanks for the info, I've passed it along and did look at the site. Please keep the emails coming. I personally am a fan of the XK and would like to see it supported. I don't mind being the point man for receiving the inquires. I can't promise we'll build a bar for the truck, but I will make sure that the right people know of the need.


Best Regards,

Marc Bowers



I hope that the member's of this site can really step it up and put some pressure on some of these companies to help us out. We can sit here and continue to talk about "did you see this?" or "did you see that?" or we can do something about it. A simple email "Hey I am interested!" is all that is needed. I noticed a lot of views on this thread and hardly any replies. I hope that the other's are emailing as well!?!?!?!?!?!

I tried just "e-mailed", but the message was too short
