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.

What is LINX?

The next generation of 4×4 accessories

LINX is a unique modern controller that declutters the dashboard and centralises the command of vehicle accessories by replacing classic switches, gauges and monitors with one sleek and smart driver interface. Built on an expandable platform, LINX will continue to evolve your on and off road driving experience both now and into the future.

Experience total control

Fitting out a modern 4×4 with a range of accessories such as driving lights, Air Lockers, dual batteries and air compressors can quickly lead to a dash full of out of place, hard to reach switches and a myriad of gauges and monitors either stuck to the windscreen or drilled into the dashboard – not to mention all the associated fuses and wiring.

LINX offers a single point of control control via its user-friendly, Bluetooth enabled, mobile touch screen display. The LINX mobile display mounts conveniently and unobtrusively within reach of the driver while the main control hub lies neatly out of sight under the dash or seat; taking care of all accessory wiring.

There’s much more to LINX than meets the eye in our video snapshot – see how it can unlock a brand new experience with your 4×4 accessories. Visit the LINX microsite to explore each feature:

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.

ARB Air Lockers Unbeatable at King of the Hammers

Arguably the most gruelling off road race on the planet, King of the Hammers, is a brutal concoction of desert racing, rock crawling and high horsepower 4WD machines.

For one week, every February since 2006, Johnson Valley in California is transformed into what is now the largest off road race event in North America. This year was no exception, boasting a record number of both competitors and spectators.

ARB’s presence has been ever growing amongst the field of competitors, with more vehicles now relying on Air Lockers to get them to the chequered flag. All of these drivers have the option run other differential setups, yet they choose to arm their vehicles with Air Lockers; A testament to the product’s capability.

In the main event, Shannon Campbell, a name very well known in rock sports and long-time ARB Air Locker sponsored driver, entered the 2017 KOH race in search of his third crown. For his 2017 campaign, Shannon’s buggy was equipped with a prototype 40-spline Ford 9” competition edition Air Locker in the rear, and a production competition 35-spline unit in the front.

Shannon was able to fight off 122 competitors, including his son Wayland Campbell, and became the first 3-time King of the Hammers champion. Not far behind, Wayland crossed the line a mere 28 seconds later to claim the 2nd step on the podium. This was no small achievement, considering out of all the main event competitors who left the start line, only 50 managed to make it back!

The prototype diff worked extremely well for Shannon, and due to its success, ARB will soon have it in full production and available to the public.

It is worthy to note, that throughout the various events leading up to the main race, a common denominator amongst multiple winning vehicles, is that they were all fitted with ARB Air Lockers.

In a race against time and in an environment that is so punishing, the success of ARB Air Lockers at KOH is a true reflection of the extensive research, design and quality materials that go into the product. Each Air Locker is meticulously produced at ARB headquarters in Kilsyth, Australia, to ensure the highest manufacturing standards are maintained.

Competition drivers depend on quality and reliability to get them across the finish line, and if they can trust Air Lockers, you can be sure that they’ll survive anything you throw at them off road.

The ARB Air Locker 40 spline competition Ford 9” will be available late 2017. To watch it in action, click here:

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.
