Yes, I have a warning bar that I have installed. It Flashes amber and white and the white lights can be turned on steady to be used as area lighting or offroad lights. The Light Bar is made by Feniex Industries, they make a wide verity of warning lighting and emergency lighting products. I own a company and am a Dealer for Feniex Industries. I install the Feniex Lighting for my customers to suit their needs and the Touareg doubles as my Demo Vehicle.

I very rarely hear the compressor come on, It doesnt seem to be having and negative effects on the suspension that I have noticed so far.

I Shortened the "dogbone" looking shaft in the middle by about a half inch. From there I fine tuned it with the VAG COM

And. About the suspension when you have it high does it. BEcome super stiff like in stock mode on its highest setting?
I have it set to roughly an inch and a half lower than the highest factory setting. The suspension does seem stiffer than stock but not annoyingly so.

The autumn picture is just awesome.

And the monster truck tires with Cayenne wheels - epic!

There's just one thing missing... A licence plate with the word "BADASS" on it.

The bitterness of a bad quality product last's a long time after the softness of a low price that has been forgotten .

Apologies in advance to the OP... Not trying to steal your thread.

That sounds perfectly reasonable. I have a little fee time at the moment.. Give me a couple of weeks and I can put a instruction plan based upon my design (no chassis welding).

Dillon,

If you are interested in a collaborative write-up giving people both options (weld and non-weld). Feel free to send me a PM ( I will send you my contact details).

Regards..
Stuart...

That's an incredibly generous gift of your time Stuart. I suspect many on here will follow this with great interest and be very thankful. I suspect that the number of winches fitted will rise as a result

Thank you on behalf of many members here..

Stuart, I have PMed you, I am excited about putting together a write-up with you!


Thank you for the kind words everyone.

Also, newfinish,

Rock sliders are next on the list for sure. Gotta protect those rockers! There is a company called Iron Rock Offroad that I bought parts from back in my Jeep days. I am thinking about ordering a set of rock sliders from them for a Grand Cherokee and modifying them to fit the Touareg. Not sure on the specifics yet but I will keep everyone posted.

Thanks!
