    Tow Bar and Bull Bar on a Y62

    I just took a Ti-L for a test drive and was impressed. The sales person didn't know if a weight distribution hitch could be fitted. In fact he didn't know what one was. Also be said a bull bar could not be fitted to the Ti-L because of the adaptive cruise control system as it would void the warranty.Can anyone tell me about either of these issues please?

    Your best bet would be to speak to ARB or TJM, seeing as they now make bull bars for the Y62

    for the back fit firestone hp air bags which I have done and the arb delux bullbar is getting fitted this Friday is compliant and is the best due to general consensus of reading other reports. with the air bags there is no need for a weight distribution bar. may I ask what you are towing

    Pretty sure arb and tjm are both complianced bars so should not void warranty.
    But best to ring arb or tjm.
    And I'm pretty sure the tow hitch is a 50mm receiver so yes a distribution hitch can be used.
    As Kev said there are other options these days.

    Do you have the Ti-L with adaptive cruise control?
    When we toured ARB they had a jeep bullbar, the Jeep had adaptive cruise and the bullbar had massive ugly sensor on the front of it, just so that the cruise would still work

    You can use a weight distribution hitch with both the nissan or hayman reeses towbars. I talked to a parts guy within a nissan dealership whom I trust as he has been there quite a while and knows what he is talking about and I asked him about the nissan towbar, he told me that yes a weight distribution hitch can be used but advised against it as they cannot control how and when you use it. I think in all nissans literature it just says, no, a weight distribution hitch cannot be used, or recommended not to be used as it easier to say this and cover all bases.
    I got a hayman reese towbar for ours as they sell weight distribution hitches so going on assumptions alone they must build them to be able to handle the weight distribution hitch.

    Hi . I have a 2013 Ti-L Y62 . You can get a nice bullbar from ARB with a winch fitted , they can re-locate the camera . They gave me a quote , I didnt go ahead , but its all been done before Also there is a 2 inch lift kit available in Melb ( I had the kit sent up and ARB in Burleigh ( Gold Coast ) did the fit . I had one fitted about a year ago : honestly Im very happy with the lift kit . Also I bought roof bars : chrome run length of the roof not across . Also I bought
    chrome door panels : easy to fit . Also Hayman Reece do a huge adjustable tow hitch : bought one of those also. Done over 100,000 klm of faultless driving .
    Also you can order LCD headlights from Dubai : Nissan dealership , even the new 2016 Y62 front end from Dubai : costs about $ 4000 landed , and you cant buy
    that here : all just bolts straight on . : I saw these in Dubai when on a business trip , they look pretty nice . Y62 : nice vehicle . I very happy with mine anyway . Regards
