Chief Products WK2 Lower Front Guard is engineered to protect the critical components at the lower front of your WK2 without ruining your Jeep's good looks. Weighing only 15kg (approx.) when fully installed, it provides off-road protection for the Lower Radiator Core, ACC Camera, Windshield Washer Bottle and Air Suspension Controller. Best of all, we've designed the WK2 Lower Front Guard so it installs behind the removable lower front fascia, providing full protection off-road while still allowing you to maintain a factory appearance on-road.

Best of all, we've designed the WK2 Lower Front Guard so it installs behind the removable lower front fascia, providing full protection off-road while still allowing you to maintain a factory appearance on-road.

    We spent more than 1 year in development getting every detail just right. We performed months of on-road and off-road testing, putting the WK2 Lower Front Guard through numerous challenges, as well as nearly a dozen test fits on various WK2 models. That passionate attention-to-detail led to numerous refinements that increased ease-of-installation, lowered weight, maximised performance and increased strength. We even designed the WK2 Lower Front Guard to be as economical to ship as possible, which significantly reduces associated shipping costs as well as the environmental impact.

  • Off-Road Protection
    Off-road protection for the Lower Radiator Core, ACC Camera, Windshield Washer Bottle and Air Suspension Controller. Accomplished via high-strength 350 grade steel that is 5mm thick on the main centre section.

    Maintain OEM Appearance
    The lower front fascia can be easily installed over the WK2 Lower Front Guard, maintaining the great looks of the Jeep Grand Cherokee while driving around town. Then when you're heading off-road, you can easily remove the lower front fascia via (5) 1/4 turn fasteners to reveal the WK2 Lower Front Guard.

    Low Installed Weight
    Only 15kg (approx.) when fully installed. This is extremely light when compared to a Bull Bar which often weighs 40kgs (alloy) - 90kgs (steel).

    Maximum Approach Angle
    Since our design doesn't extend past the front of your WK2, the maximum approach angle is retained.

    Compatible With Excellent Front Recovery Options
    Can be installed with OEM Tow Hooks (if available for your WK2) or Chief Products WK2 Recovery Hooks & WK2 Recovery Points, (which can be installed on driver & passenger sides and are engineer rated to 4,500kg [1.5 GVM]).

    Easily & Inexpensively Repaired
    Because we designed the WK2 Lower Front Guard as a set of components, if you damage one part, you can easily and cost effectively replace just that part.

    Low Cost
    Significantly less expensive than a Bull Bar, especially when you include shipping and installation costs.

    Easy To Install
    We provide easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions. If you're half-way decent with a wrench you can install this yourself.

    Industry Leading Corrosion Protection
    We utilise E-Coat (Electrophoretic Coating) to provide the very highest corrosion protection available for steel automotive parts. Deposited from a water-based solution using a high voltage DC charge, the process coats all wet surfaces with an extremely tough and highly corrosion resistant finish that is unlike any other process.

    Bolt Head Protection
    Our Bolt Head Protectors are engineered to keep critical bolt heads protected from off-road obstacles. They feature a slotted design that keys directly into the product with no possibility of spinning or moving when hit off-road.

    Real World Testing
    There aren’t many off-road companies who own a WK2 as their daily driver, or regularly take it all over Australia in search of off-road adventures. In our opinion, that extra testing and passionate attention to performance leads to superior products.

    Top Quality Finishing Touches
    We include all the details that matter. High tensile zinc plated bolts for maximum strength and corrosion resistance. Wedge-Lock washers to create bolted joints that are extremely resistant to loosening. Anti-Seize for bolted joints that are resistant to seizing. A Chief Products Shop Rag for all the dirty jobs around the garage. All packaged with extreme care to arrive safely and looking great.
  • Bolts into existing mounting points in the frame, no drilling or cutting needed.
