  • ARB bullbar bracket failure

    My ARB bullbar has a 90mm crack on one mounting bracket and 70mm on the other.ARB are not interested saying it has suffered "excessive use on corrugated roads". Has any one else suffered a similar failure? https://www.pradopoint.com.au/core/i...EAAAICRAEAOw==https://www.pradopoint.com.au/core/i...EAAAICRAEAOw==​ ​​​​​​​

      The bar was on the car when I bought it three years ago and the car is only just five, so 3-5 years.
      Have repaired it myself after a quote of $650 and eight week wait for a 'fitting kit'.
      Still annoyed at the "excessive use on corrugated roads"comment as it is really an admission that the bar is not suitable for off road use and therefore not fit for purpose.
      Most parts of the bar have failed,the ARB fog lights,three under panels(those were replaced under good will but the new ones have already started cracking) and now the brackets.
