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.

ARB BT 51 Suspension for Jeep Wrangler - ARB Maroochydore

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.

ARB Intensity Light Bar - 4x4 Accessories ARB Maroochydore

New Intensity Light Bar

To accompany our popular Intensity AR21 and AR32 driving light range, we have this month released a new and innovative LED light bar, designed to integrate closely with the top tube of a bull bar.

ARB Intensity AR40 LED Light Bar:

Engineered in Australia and manufactured in the United States, using the same patented lens/reflector optic technology as our existing Intensity LED driving lights, our new ARB Intensity LED light bar features 40 individual LEDs (two rows of 20) encased in a virtually indestructible polycarbonate lens and powdercoated, extruded aluminium body with pressure die cast end caps.

Designed to integrate with the top tube of the bull bar, the AR40’s extruded alloy housing wraps around the tube, providing a low profile that doesn’t obstruct the driver’s view of the road.

“It was very much about the integration of the unit into the bar,” explains John Bamfield, ARB’s Product Manager for the Intensity light range. “The way the heatsink has been designed, once it’s mounted onto the bar, it almost envelopes the bar itself, so it becomes one with the bar.”

GU Frontier - ARB Maroochydore Bull Bars

145L Frontier Long Range Tank for GU Patrol

One of Australia’s favourite wagons of recent years is now eligible to receive a 145 litre fuel tank upgrade, thanks to ARB.  The new durable and impact resistant crosslink polymer 145 litre diesel long range fuel tank for the GU Patrol is due to be available in ARB stores and stockists by late September 2016.

Replacing the main tank of the Nissan GU Patrol 3.0 and 4.2 litre diesel vehicles, the new Frontier tank offers Patrol owners an additional 55 litres over the factory specification, and when combined with the factory sub-tank offers an impressive 175 litres of storage. With wall thicknesses of up to 8mm and constructed from a specially formulated crosslinking polymer, the ARB Frontier tank is durable and impact resistant, perfect for off road applications.

A first for the ARB Frontier tank is the ARB engineered fuel collector. This fuel collector acts as a 1.8 litre fuel bowl and provides a consistent fuel supply while driving through rough terrain including extreme vehicle angles, low fuel situations and high ‘fuel slosh’ conditions that may otherwise starve the vehicle of fuel.

Another design feature built into the fuel collector is a spring loaded mounting system. This clever feature ensures the fuel collector maintains contact with the bottom of the tank while being able to automatically adjust as the tank adapts to terrain conditions.

Frontier long range diesel fuel tanks have fast become the benchmark in long range tanks for diesel 4×4 vehicles. Their polymer construction means the tanks can be shaped to best fit the undercarriage of the vehicle, while the crosslink technology combined with its one piece design provides increased durability.

Key Features of a Crosslinking Polymer Frontier Long Range Tank:

  • Made from durable and impact resistant crosslink polymer material
  • ARB engineered fuel collector
  • Allows for full compatibility with the ARB and Kaymar rear bars
  • One-piece body construction.
  • Negligible impact on vehicle ground clearance
  • Designed to take up voids under the vehicle
  • Easy and fast installation
  • No rusting or corrosion of the tank body
  • Allows for flexing of the vehicles chassis
  • Individually pressure tested
  • Supplied with ARB strap mounting kit
  • Made in Australia
