Hey guys,

which is the preferred bar (twin wheel crier), ARB or Kaymar (although Kaymar is very hard to get in my country)?

Got this one, It's dual wheel carrier and dual Gerry can holder. It has LED lights and rear parking sensors you can can hang 35's on it, but mine are 33's. Best of both world IMO.

Its Made by Powerfull 4x4 and alot cheaper than ARB and the quality is comparable ect...

I bought the ARB a couple of years back and immediately wished I had bought Kaymar.
Very unhappy with the ARB. The ARB dealer who got it and fitted it for me said he would never fit another one. Took 2 men 2 days to fit. Then there are the design features that cause problems. I think the Kaymar is a much better product.
ARB front bars are good but Kaymar are the rear bar specialists.

Nice one Jacket,
I did that to my standard bar and it busted all the plastic clips and tabs that hold it on. Now is in place with a few self tapping screws but that wont last for long.

Personally, like the look of the Kaymar... cheaper to.

You pay more for a bar that incorporates a tow bar due to the extra strength/engineering required. The powerful 4x4 range along with many others don't have this.

Their have been people who have bought the cheaper rear bars who have dropped of rock ledges, landed on their rear bar and put a buckle in their quarter panel.... not sure which brand but made me think... not all bars are created equal.
