Yes. They're the same other than the facelifted front, interior and some detail improvements

If work is so terrific, why do they have to pay us to do it?

The towbar will fit, but it will not meet ADR as it is labelled for an MQ, not an MR. Small point but would be deemed unroadworthy in Victoria.

The wiring will not fit, as the plugs at the rear are different.

The tonneau will fit too, bit seeing as the side panels are rivetted and stuck on, it would leave nasty messy hole on MQ, And as they are aluminium, they may distort when trying to unstick them. Best get dealer to throw in a new one.

Sports bars are all the same, no issue there

Thread revival from search rather than creating new topic..

Looking at inter-compatibility of snorkels.. particularly the "OEM style" like below:

Visually the quarter panels are the same right at the top where it mounts through into the guard etc.
The MR and MQ seem to share the same body lines from the A-pillar back to the tub for these to appear cross compatible.

Can anyone confirm?

Reason I post is a lot of the listings for them around the internet and eBay quote "MR" snorkels being the current model but they do appear to be backward compatible unless there is something obvious I'm missing.

Thanks all.

MR and MQ genuine accessory snorkels are different. The shape of the template is different because the guard is different
