Re: ARB Summit rear bar

Apparently the bar was design to fit a PXI and the wing panels were never redesigned for the PXII. I was really annoyed that I wasn't told about it.
I thought the MK1 and MKII tubs are the same?

They said they aren't really for use with driving lights and that the kit is more for entry lights.
