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.

ARB Maroochydore 4x4 Accessories - VW Amarok Summit Protection

The Amarok Joins The Summit RSTB Club

Volkswagen’s recent update to the Amarok has provided ARB engineers the opportunity to develop a Summit Rear Step Tow Bar to suit. Whilst primarily designed for the updated Amarok, a supplementary fitting kit is available to enable fitment to an earlier model Amarok.

To maximise departure angles while allowing for number plate fitment under the tailgate, ARB’s engineers have adapted the Summit Rear Step Tow Bar design, yet retained the features of the Summit platform, including press form wings, press formed diffuser, and centre lift and panel and hi-lift jack points at the rear and side.

The 60.3mm tube work, finished in Integrit textured black powdercoat, has been formed to provide the necessary protection and strength to the Summit Rear Step Tow Bar assembly.
