November Product Update

At ARB, we are consistently working on expanding the products available in our range. Please find more information below detailing some recent additions:

FRONTIER TANK COLORADO / D-MAX

The 140-litre Frontier Tank replaces the 80-litre OE tank, giving an increase of 60-litres. With a wall thickness of up to eight millimetres, the ARB Frontier Tank is durable and impact resistant. Priced at $1,215 (Australian East Coast Metro) and can be ordered now.

COMPACT SLEEPING BAG

The new Compact Sleeping Bag is a lightweight yet warm sleeping bag made for temperatures ranging from -5°C to +5°C.
The Compact Sleeping Bag retails at $139 (Australian East Coast Metro) and stock is available now from your local ARB store or stockist.

GREASEABLE PINS

Leaf spring bushes require periodic lubrication to ensure longevity. Old Man Emu Greaseable Pins facilitate this task without the need to remove the shackles, thereby greatly reducing the time and effort involved. Now available in front-bush applications, complementing the already available rear-bush application with prices starting from $90 (Australian East Coast Metro).


In case you missed it... Expanded product range

At ARB, we are consistently working on expanding the models available in our product range based on newcomers to the market. With the recent updates and releases to the following models, please find more information about products to suit:

Summit Sahara Bar – Ford Everest

Engineered and manufactured to maintain maximum functionality whilst complementing the look of the vehicle. Featuring ARB’s five-fold upswept and tapered wing profile and available with or without the polished centre tube, owners of this bar are granted a different look from a traditional Summit Bar without sacrificing practicality. Provisions for adding other accessories such as winches, driving lights, CB antennas and fog lights all come on the Summit Sahara Bar. Choose from powder-coated or colour-coded to suit your preferences.

Commercial Bar – MR Triton

Commercial bull bars are a cost-effective alternative to Summit bull bars with a comparable level of vehicle protection. By simplifying the manufacturing process, these bars incorporate the strength but achieve cost savings by going without some of the more aesthetic characteristics.

Summit Side Rails – MR Triton

Featuring large steel tubing and moulding to the lines of the vehicle, the Summit Side Rails are a strong and stylish addition to your vehicle. Connecting the bull bar and side steps, the side rail has a tough nylon cover sleeve to provide an integrated look while adding protection to your quarter panels whilst off road.

Tailgate Assist – MR Triton

The perfect solution to struggling to lower and raise a heavy tailgate. Using two struts, they work independently to ease the lowering of the tailgate and reduce the effort required to lift the tailgate. Installed easily and quickly and available now for the MR Triton.

Summit Raw RSTB – MR Triton

Protect your rear with the stripped back Summit Raw Rear Step Tow Bar for MR Triton GLX and GLX+. Designed with 60.3mm tube finished with a textured black powder coat and engineered to tow 3.1t (as per manufacturer’s specifications) with provisions for all the necessities such as trailer plug wiring, compressor outlet, trailer camera wiring, parking sensors and a 50-amp Anderson plug. The Summit Raw RSTB is the perfect addition for dual-cab owners travelling further than just the work site.

Cargo Straps and Tie Downs

Secure your load with ARB’s updated range of Cargo Straps and Tie Down System. ARB Cargo Straps now feature rubber moulded handles, reflective printed lashing capacity on the strap and improved hooks to accommodate ARB roof racks. Coming complete with a nylon mesh storage bag to keep your straps tidy and, importantly, fully compliant with AS/NZS requirements.

ARB’s Tie Down System has an anodised, powder-coat black finish to protect from the elements when mounting externally and chamfered ends to protect the vehicle if mounting internally.


Unbreakable Assistance - Tailgate Assist

Unbreakable Assistance - Tailgate Assist

The most popular car on the Australian market is getting a helping hand from ARB with the newly released Tailgate Assist for SR and SR5 2015+ models. Cleverly designed with a combination of dampening strut and torsion spring, the Tailgate Assist helps the user control the opening speed and reduce the effort required to close by over 50% – perfect for those times when you wish you had an extra set of hands.

Unlike previous models of Tailgate Assist, this version utilises a torsion spring to assist closing rather than spring assist struts. The torsion spring runs across the lower edge of the tailgate due to the limited space where the regular assist strut would normally be mounted. Factory tailgate limit straps are replaced with cables to allow sufficient clearance of moving parts with additional anti-wear pads included to avoid paint rub. The unique ball and socket design of the dampening strut mounts plays an integral role in achieving long service life as they allow for naturally occurring misalignment of the moving parts.

ARB’s engineers designed and tested the product to over 40,000 cycles over 18 months, equating to around 20 years of service life to the average consumer.

ARB Products for new 2019 MR Triton

ARB Releases Products for New MR Triton

Upon release, the new-look MR Triton received mixed reviews across a number of social channels and media outlets. The updated front end design was different to anything else on the market with unique lines, fog light and parking sensor placement. Designing an ARB Summit bull bar was going to present some challenges for ARB’s team of engineers.

A prototype Summit bull bar has now been created and fitted to the MR Triton. ARB’s design team worked hard on reconfiguring elements of the bull bar to suit the new vehicle shape, without compromising the functionality of the vehicle’s safety features and still maintaining the overall style of the Summit bull bar.

“The redesign of the front end instantly posed some challenges with distinctive lines and varying parking sensor placement on some models. We are pleased to have released a Summit bull bar that integrates into the MR Triton while offering increased protection to the vehicle and passengers” says Brand Marketing Manager, Mark Berger. Production for the Summit bull bar will begin in July 2019.

Carry-over products from the previous model include Old Man Emu suspension, front and rear Air Lockers, Classic, Classic Plus and Ascent canopies, drawers, ute liner, UVP, RHS recovery point and side steps.

Development continues on rear step tow bars, side rails and Tailgate Assist to complete the range of accessories offered for the MR Triton.

ARB Header Image for Fridge Freezer Classic

CLASSIC FRIDGE FREEZER SERIES II

APP-SOLUTE REVAMP

No off road trip is complete without a place to keep the food fresh and, more importantly, the beers cold. With continually advancing technology, ARB has given its current Classic fridge an update. ARB’s Classic Fridge Freezer Series II has had a physical refresh with a new modern colour scheme and a bunch of functional new features.

The Classic Fridge Freezer Series II has a dimmable, backlit touchpad for easy night time operation and 12V power input readout for simple voltage monitoring on the display. A transmitter allows remote display and control via a new app, which is available for download to smart devices or the LINX unit.

The ARB Fridge Freezer app allows full control of the Series II fridge via a mobile device. The user is able to turn the fridge on/off and manually adjust (or set via presets) the target temperature. The app will display the target temp, the power input voltage and the fridge compressor status, and alert the user if the lid is left open.

To individualise the app to suit, the display unit (Celsius or Fahrenheit), battery protection (high, medium or low) and fridge display brightness (high or low) can all be altered via the app settings. On top of this, the user can allocate set temperature names, such as food, ice cream or beer, and assign fridge names if connected to multiple fridges.

To complement the fridge, a new transit bag has been designed with a modern and stylish look, capturing the dark monochrome tones of the fridge, and includes a bonus branded bottle opener.

For owners of current ARB fridges (post-2014 models), the new transmitter and app can be used to display the temperature, input voltage and compressor status. Learn more here.


ARB Linx System ARB Maroochydore

It's Time: ARB Releases Online Update For Linx

When LINX was first released, one of the most exciting features was the expandable platform it was designed on. ARB has just announced its latest update including two new modules, all at no extra cost to the user.

Monitoring the roll and pitch of a vehicle, the inclinometer module allows users to set alarms to display and sound when approaching the vehicle’s roll or pitch limit. The roll and pitch screens can be viewed separately or double tap the screen to see them together.

The LINX clock module includes a range of functions such as local and world time, date, timer, alarm and stop watch. The date and time can be manually set in the Android main setting menu or will automatically set whenever the LINX display is able to receive a GPS signal or a SIM card is inserted to connect it to a telecommunications network.

The release of these first new modules cements ARB’s reputation for product research and development. New products are always being designed and tested to bring the best user experience to the 4WD industry. This update can be downloaded via the LINX display in the settings menu when connected to the internet. Register devices at www.linx.arb.com.au to be notified of all future updates.


Tred Pro - ARB 4x4 Accessories Maroochydore

Confidence in all conditions: ARB TRED Pro

You don’t have to be an avid viewer of The Big Bang Theory to know that physics plays a big part in most of our day to day lives; and when applied to the 4WD world, it is reasonable to expect that a 2.5t vehicle might struggle to maintain its traction in fine, soft sand and muddy terrains.

To combat trouble when you lose traction, ARB has partnered with TRED to bring exclusive ARB TRED Pro recovery tracks to their stores. TRED offers an Australian owned and manufactured product and were the first to introduce a lifetime warranty.

TRED Pro’s unique patented EXOTRED dual composite design comprises of multiple moulding processes and materials resulting in a flexible board fitted with a glass-filled nylon nodules which offer far greater resistance to melting under the heat and pressure of wheel spin.

The transitioning convex to concave construction of the board allows the TRED Pro to wrap around the tyre early in the recovery process; ensuring ultimate coverage to gain traction whilst the later convex shape provides the tyre a sturdy platform to rise out and continue along a flat surface. Complementing the construction of the board is the precisely placed nodules which are spaced to match a large range of popular 4WD tread patterns and provide optimal grip.

TRED Pro for ARB is offered in an exclusive range of colours (black on black or and black with recovery orange nodules) and includes a premium leash set for quick recovery of boards after use.


ARB Jack - ARB Maroochydore 4x4 Accessories

ARB launches latest recovery accessory: Meet Jack

No good story ended with ‘nothing went wrong along the way’. A story worth telling is often the result of the misfortunes that happen on the journey. Being prepared for when things go wrong is vital to any off road adventure, and being prepared starts with recovery equipment.

With innovation at the forefront of its business mantra, ARB introduces you to Jack; Not a new member to the engineering team, but rather the outcome of a group of engineers being challenged to bring the latest in hydraulic technology to the recovery space.

JACK; with no holds barred, is ARB’s new off road long-travel hydraulic jack. Not only is it a visually stunning piece of equipment, the functionality and safety benefits over the common mechanical jack are hard to ignore.

From the moment JACK hits the ground, its sturdy pivot base can be rotated a full 360 degrees for optimal placement on unstable grounds. The forged aluminium hook can be quickly and easily locked into one of 9 hooking points on the extruded outer body of JACK.

Once a connection is made between JACK’s hook and a dedicated lifting point on the vehicle, each full effortless pump of the jack handle will raise the vehicle 13mm.

At this point of recovery, a key benefit of JACK over mechanical jacks are the huge reduction in effort required to raise the vehicle. JACK’s ergonomic handle is positioned at the top of the jack allowing the operator to remain upright. The hydraulic design allows quick and short partial cycles of the handle rather than full strokes to achieve the same result.

JACK has an approved working capacity of 2000kg and while short and compact, allowing storage in your 4WD drawer, JACK boasts an impressive lift height of 1230mm (48inch).

When it comes time to return the vehicle to solid ground, JACK is fitted with a safe and simple release valve. The two-stage hydraulically controlled release system (at the touch of a lever), allows JACK to retract slowly for the first two thirds and quicker for the final third. The hydraulic release means there is no risk of a brutal handle recoil or load drop due to mechanical slip.

So when it’s time to hit the tracks, JACK might be just the extra muscle you need to get you home again.
