Hi Brownie. Not a problem at all, these pics show either side near where the exhaust comes out on the left hand side for LWB models/SWB with aux tank and on the right for SWB models without the aux tank. Also a couple of pics of either side of the hitch showing the access through the cut out to the trailer plug and also to be able to put the tow bar pin in etc.

If they mounted the trailer plug on the bottom side of the bracket from the factory you will need to flip it to the top side of the bracket which is a better place for it anyway.

Brownie should you need the cut out to be a little larger just let me know and I can cut it to suit.

Cheers,
Kieron

If these measurements match up then I am sure that it will fit.

If you email through a couple of pics and if possible have some one hold a tape measure in place I should be able to confirm for you, just to be on the safe side, as I don't like my chances of finding a local Paj with as ARB tow bar.
Cool, I'll get a couple snaps tomorrow or monday and send them to you..

I have to say that's a pretty clever design using the tow hitch like that Kieron. I'm impressed.

Thanks mate, I had been looking at it for a long time trying to work out the best way of doing it and then mid last week it hit me that I was looking at things from the wrong point of view. I had been looking at it with the tow hitch as being used as a solid point of contact, where in fact it just needed to provide the strength to stop it from pivoting and being pushed in to the rear bumper. Bolting through the tow bar recovery points makes it solid and there is no movement at all so it won't rattle around at all.

Doing it this way also meant that it wasn't confined to only being able to be fitted when not towing and has also meant that I can do things $50-100 cheaper for you guys which is also a bonus.

Cheers,
Kieron

Hi Kieron,

Do you know if the rear bar will interfere with the sonar / rear park sensors?

Anthony.

edit:.. never mind, I just noticed that your Paj has rear park sensors, so I'm guessing that they work fine with the rear bar.

I believe the NP tow bar is slightly different, I haven't found a local NP at the moment to test fit. But once I do I will let you know.

Cheers,
Kieron

Well done again Kieron.

Hi Kieron,

excellent work mate, I remember seeing a very early mock up of it when it was just a few bars put together and remember thinking that it'll do the job but I'd be taking it off when not in use because it didn't look that flash, but the finnished version actually looks really good! And its a really clever design too, I like it.

I will definetly be getting one, in black, I'll email you when I have the cash to go.

Finally I can get my badly mangled up rear bumper replaced without fear of wrecking it again the second I select low range...
