Not to worry, been waiting 80 or so years for the gear a few more days won't matter.

Just to get it mounted you will get away with 4x m10x30 with nylocks. If you have the recovery points you'll also need 2x m10x35 with nylocks, 2x m12x35ish with spring washers to mount to the chassis, there is also an 2x m12x90 with nylocks and a tube that stops the rail from crushing.

I would just mount it up with the 4 bolts on the factory mounts and reuse the original nuts until the proper ones get there. I drove around like this for a while n all was well. All bolts are 8.8 or above and washers front and back.

No worries good luck with it all. Mine fitted up well in the end but it was a bit of a pain.

Any idea how much I'd be looking at spending getting a triple hoop bar, brush bars and sliders in one hit?

G'day
I know this is a pretty old post but are these bars still available and if so will they fit a 2013 model?

Was in at ARB asking for a quote on something else the other day and then asked about their bars. Apparently getting a Sahara bar colour coded and fitted to my car was gonna take 4 weeks - getting it tomorrow kinda seemed out of the question haha.

Went and put a deposit on a bar today. Went for the loopless slimline. Bud said it was going to take about 10 weeks, but I think it will be well worth the wait :)
