My steel ARB for my 2018 NX has as standard LED DRL (not as bright as OEM though) and I optioned LED fog lights also. Will take winch if I ever decide to add one. Also has washers as it is GLS with HID lights.

Still on standard suspension but I've always intended to upgrade anyway.

Haven't really noticed any change in handling like other people have but it's only done 6k. Will upgrade suspension when I've finished my other upgrades so I know how much it all weighs.

Its heavy and costly and I considered all the pros and cons of weight, strength, steel vs alloy, ARB vs TJM etc etc. I decided that if I'm ever unlucky enough to hit something then I want the most strength and repairability (in a remote area) and never be wishing I'd made a different choice.

That's was one of my favorite options. But it's not available in n my country. Even i contact the MMAL, but they don't shipping abroad.

I also have the OEM bar and very happy with it. But keep in mind that the bar is very narrow, so if you decide to add spotlights later on, you will be somewhat limited in your choices.

Same as our 2018 NX, DRL,fog lights and light washers, everything works as it should and have had zero "issues", had the factory bar on our PC Challi, was not impressed by it all ,sat very close to nose of car and didn't appear very strong at all, the Pajero bar looked similar so it wasn't an option for us,

I ended up running with the ARB steel bar. Obviously a weight/economy trade off but i hit a kangaroo at 100km/h in torrential rain. The roo bounced off the bar and then went under my vehicle. Zero damage to the bar and a shout out to Boo's bash plates underneath as well because my vehicle was unscathed. So i'm happy with the decision to go ARB

Absolutely. Because that was the correct judgement in the conditions. Best to leave the forum for comments that actually help the original poster i reckon.
