Seventy years ago Arthur Warn started Warn Industries with a set of locking hubs for surplus WWII Jeeps. Over the next seven decades, the company would pioneer the electric winch, supply automakers with OE parts, create the powersports winch market, and design a host of innovative state-of-the-art products that let 4WD and powersports enthusiasts “go prepared”. That’s cause for celebration.

ARB 4×4 Accessories partnered with Warn Industries in the early 1980’s as an official Australian distributor of WARN winches. With WARN’s long history in 4×4 accessories and ARB’s vast network and experience in Australian distribution, the partnership was an obvious choice.

To celebrate the milestone anniversary, WARN has created a special limited-edition winch based on the iconic “upright” WARN winch design. The unique product will feature upgraded performance, Spydura® synthetic rope, distinctive styling and commemorative 70th Anniversary badging. Warn Industries will release more details about the M8274-70 and how you can win one in the coming months.

Supporting their anniversary, ARB is giving away a variety of 70th anniversary apparel to customers throughout the coming months. Hoodies, caps and t-shirts are all up for grabs so follow @ARB4x4 on Instagram and Facebook for your chance to win.

Starting in July, Warn Industries will be holding weekly trivia contests based around the company’s history on its Instagram (@warnindustries) and Facebook (@WARNfans) pages. Each week a winner will receive a WARN Prize Pack that includes an assortment of 70th Anniversary gear. The winner of each week’s trivia contest will be entered into a grand prize draw to win a WARN truck winch in Q4. However, this isn’t just any truck winch — it will be the upcoming limited-edition WARN M8274-70.

Warn Industries is the world’s most recognised brand in off road products such as hub locks and vehicle recovery winches. The company designs, manufactures and markets a full line of off road equipment and accessories that enhance the performance of 4WD and powersport vehicles.
