Isuzu D-MAX Gets Protection

ARB are happy to announce the release of both the Summit bull bar and Commercial bull bar to suit the recent facelift of the Isuzu D-MAX 2016+ models.

ARB’s mounting system developed for the 2012 on model D-MAX have largely been retained. The added chassis reinforcing and attachment to the chassis provides a mounting platform that is both airbag compatible and capable of withstanding winch loads up to 10,000lbs, both angled and in-line with the vehicle.

The ARB Summit bar features the latest styling from ARB, including press form cover straps, larger ARB fog lights and surround, two piece split pan grille with access door for winch clutch operation and a recessed winch control box mount for a sleek, integrated appearance.

As with all ARB Summit bull bars, the bar features twin aerial mounting tabs, durable urethane buffers, driving light mounts, Hi-Lift jack points and 62.6mm press formed cover straps. The press formed centre pan features a smooth continuous edge radius that complements modern vehicle design and provides greater strength, while a 4mm pressed aluminium cover panel is recessed into the bar for an integrated appearance (when a winch is not fitted).

Both the Commerical and Summit bull bars are finished in a hard-wearing satin black powder coat, with the Summit bar having optional colour coding available.

ARB Sport Lid Tango For Ranger PXI & PXII+

Providing secure storage space and protection from the elements, as well as incorporating a clever new hinge system that allows the fitment of OE sports bars, the Tango Sport Lid for the Ford Ranger PXI & PXII attaches to the Tango Mount Rails to provide an integrated system.

If the confines of the ute tub itself aren’t sufficient for storing all of your gear, the new Tango Sport Lid also incorporates top mounted aluminium T-channels, which will accept a range of Thule and Rhino roof bars and accessories, including cargo trays, bike racks, shovel holders and the like. A total of 75kg can be added to the top of the Sport Lid, with a maximum of 20kg recommended should you plan on lifting the lid with the top mounted cargo in place.

Importantly, for larger loads, the Tango Sport Lid has been designed with an attachment system that requires very little time and effort to remove, making runs to the tip on the weekend or helping a mate move house, an easy proposition.

Other clever features include central locking via the vehicle key fob, a soft touch electronic unlatching mechanism, LED interior lighting and emergency override of the locking mechanism, should the vehicle battery run flat or should someone get trapped inside.

ARB Releases Stage 1 & 2 GVM Upgrades for Toyota HiLux

ARB has now extended its range of Old Man Emu (OME) GVM upgrades to include Toyota HiLux models from 2015 on. After successfully obtaining approval to increase the Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) for the HiLux, ARB has released two upgrade options to improve the original specified capacity from 3000kg to either 3150kg or 3465kg.

Whether you’re carrying tools for your trade or loading up the 4×4 for a big trip, your vehicle can become dangerous and illegal if it’s in excess of the OEM specified weight limit.

The GVM is the maximum a vehicle can weigh when fully loaded. Everything you place on, or in your vehicle adds to the overall Gross Vehicle Mass. This includes a bull bar, tow bar, recovery gear, the tray body for cab chassis vehicles, fuel and even your passengers.

All vehicles have a legal GVM as part of the vehicle manufacturer’s Australian Design Rules (ADR) approval. If your vehicle exceeds these limits you could be up for a costly fine, void your insurance and ultimately make your vehicle unsafe.

To combat these issues, ARB offers Old Man Emu GVM upgrades for a number of new vehicles, now including a range of Toyota HiLux 4×4 variants. There are two upgrade options available to cater for different applications. A Stage 1 upgrade will increase the HiLux’s GVM to 3150kg, and a Stage 2 will increase the GVM to a whopping 3465kg.

There is, however, a special condition that comes with the heavier GVM upgrade. A minimum of 600kg must be permanently carried in, or on the vehicle at all times. This requirement is part of the ARB approval when fitting a Stage 2 upgrade and is essential to maintain the vehicle’s handling performance.

New vehicle GVM enhancements are only granted by the Federal Department of Infrastructure and Transport after ARB have carried out thorough testing. ARB also ensures that the increased GVM following the fitment of a complete suspension system meets ADR safety requirements.

Once an authorised OME fitter has installed an approved OME suspension system and a GVM Upgrade Compliance Plate to your vehicle, it can then be registered according to its newly increased GVM. This process ensures that your vehicle is GVM legal in all states of Australia.

If you think your vehicle is over the legal weight limit or needs some additional payload capacity, ARB has the solution.

BP-51 Now Available For JK Wranglers 2006+

ARB announces the latest application for OME BP-51 high-performance bypass shock absorbers, engineered specifically to suit the Jeep JK Wrangler with 50mm (2″) suspension lifts. This complements the existing BP-51 models for JK Wranglers with a 75-100mm (3″-4″) lift.

Providing considerable ride comfort around town with significant amounts of end-zone damping for exceptional chassis control and handling off road, BP-51’s are tuned specifically for the Old Man Emu range of 50mm (2″) coils and tested with both diesel and petrol engine variants along with a range of optional ARB accessories. Further tuning enhancements to suit individuals applications can be made on-vehicle via the unique adjustment system providing both compression and rebound dampening refinement to suit a range of vehicle loads.

OME BP-51 shocks can be fitted as part of a complete OME suspension system including coils, steering damper, trim packer and fitting kits or can be retrofitted in place of existing Nitrocharger Sport shocks.

Utilising the same fitting kit developed for the 75-100mm (3″-4″) version, the front shock includes all mounting hardware required to fit the shock absorber and reservoir. A lower shock absorber mount has been designed that repositions the shock, providing clearance between the shock body and the chassis rail. A new fitting kit has been designed specifically to suit the rear shock where the factory mounts and utilised and includes a stone guard to protect the shaft from front wheel stone damage.

As with all OME suspension components, the BP-51 range comes with a 3 year, 60,000km warranty.
