Daystar Bull Bar Won't Fit 2016 Latitude?

Anyone order one of these Bull Bars and have problem mounting it?

First off, I have the "regular" version of the bar, not the Trailhawk only one.

On my 2016 Latitude There is a raised plastic piece in the Driver's Side leading down back behind the radiator area from the Bottom Bolt you're supposed to use. It sticks out probably 1 - 1.5 inches or so from where the top bolt is. You can see in the photo below the depth difference in the top bolt and bottom bolt locations because of this plastic piece.

Is there a work around? Did they send me the wrong piece? I'd like to keep the bar, but there's no way it'll work like this. Perhaps it's something new in the 2016's they weren't made for?


This view is peeking in through the removed fakey-vent plate on the driver side.

Just for reference, here's the one I bought (I was undecided till the price dropped... maybe now we see why)

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Sent them a complaint asking for a solution (which I would prefer) or a return/refund.

Nope, there's really nothing that can be done other than Daystar making a new Driver's side arm.
Already packaged it back up for return. But the directions were only text. Dearch Daystar Bull Bar and they are shown in one of the other threads.

Ok it will fit. Here's the problem. I called spoke to a tech.
If u have a manual it has an offset bracket to work with ur problem
The automatic does not need this bracket. It uses the ones u have. Call Daystar they will ship u the correct ones.

has something to do with the motor size and the auto or manual version

I contacted them on Amazon and they said they'll probably issue a return and never offered a solution. I'll call Daystar direct and see what they can do.

However, I have an automatic.... So I'll see what they send.

strange -- when u call daystar let me know what they tell u which brackets to use or which mod number to order or how to order it

he said the brackets should work with my setup but its just the same as yours --- 2016 latitude auto 2.4 4-cylinder

let me know what they tell u and we can figure this out jeeeeesh

i want the bar but cant deal with what u went threw

Yea I just talked to a Chris Wagner at Daystar. He is going to send me the replacement arm, but was surprised my model has that plastic piece blocking the arm. He asked me to send him a copy of my window sticker info and the photo I posted above. He said they aren't really sure what that piece is and apparently were wrong at guessing who would have it and who wouldn't. He said he's going to start building a database of other people who have the same problem and hopefully figure it out.

So I'll update in a few days if this works or not.

Thanks, for pointing me in their direction Steve!
