ARB’S ACCESSORY RANGE KEEPS ON GROWING
The origins of ARB go back to 1975, when company founder, Tony Brown, was inspired by a 4WDing trip through the top end of Australia.
Today, ARB is Australia’s largest manufacturer and distributor of 4×4 accessories. It has a vast international presence, with an office in the USA and an export network that extends through more than 100 countries around the globe. Its philosophy, however, has never wavered from its original course – quality, reliability and practicality above all else.
Year on year ARB has continued to expand its range of accessories, which the following additions made to the same quality as Tony’s first products back in 1975.
Deluxe Sleeping Bag
A spacious king single sleeping bag which offers more room to move comfortably inside, as well featuring a removable internal fleece liner for easy cleaning and adaptability to all seasons. The Deluxe sleeping bag can also be joined together to form one mega double bag to keep you warm on those cooler nights, with a rating to -10°C.
The ARB Recovery Gloves are perfect for protection and keeping your hands clean during recovery situations, general work on your 4×4 or use around the campsite.
The use of premium synthetic materials reduces abrasion and wear, and improves comfort on your hands. The moulded rubber impact pads provide extensive knuckle protection, and the abrasion-resistant material on the palm has been designed specifically for use with winch cables – both the wire and synthetic rope varieties.
Adventure light 600
Built with features such as dual magnetic mounts, flexible nylon hooks, dust and water resistant housing, an LCD battery capacity indicator, and a 5V USB charge port, the LED Adventure Light 600 is an important and versatile camp light for those late-night dinners, trackside maintenance or for simply flooding your camp area with light.
A digital switch controls the light functionality, with settings for both 300 Lumen and 600 Lumen. The Adventure Light 600 features rechargeable lithium batteries which can be charged from either 12 Vdc, 240 Vac or 5v USB.
Weekender recovery kit
With an ARB Weekender Recovery Kit, you have the peace of mind knowing you’re carrying the essentials with a selection of ARB recovery items that will come in handy the next time you get stuck.
Included in the kit is the ARB 8,000 kg recovery strap, two galvanised 4.75t rated shackles, one set of leather palm gloves and a PU coated cotton canvas recovery bag, to conveniently store all the equipment together.
Digital tyre inflator
Maintaining correct tyre pressures on your 4×4 is a necessity for good fuel economy, prolonged tyre life and maximum traction.
It’s therefore crucial to carry an accurate air pressure gauge and tyre inflation equipment in your vehicle.
The new ARB digital tyre inflator makes checking and adjusting your vehicle’s tyre pressures a fast and simple operation thanks to its easy to read digital display, ergonomic thumb-operated inflator lever, bleed button and clip-on chuck.
The big digital display can be set to your preferred unit of measurement, and the pressure range far exceeds what you’ll ever need for tyre inflation: 0-200 psi, 0-414 bar, 0-1400 kPa or 0-14 kgF/cm2.

ARB’S TANGO STORAGE SOLUTION
For dual cabs
For dual cab utility owners looking for an alternative to a traditional canopy, ARB has released a new Tango load system.
Made up of three main components – the Tango Sport Lid, Tango mount system and Tango Loadmaster cargo organiser – the new load system provides additional practicality, versatility and security to the standard vehicle tub.
Tango Sport Lid
The crowning jewel of the new Tango load system is the stylish and practical Tango Sport Lid. Providing secure storage space and protection from the elements, as well as incorporating a clever new hinge system that allows the fitment of OE sport bars, the Tango Sport Lid attaches to the Tango mount rails to provide an integrated system.
The clever attachment system allows for quick and easy installation and removal of the Tango Sport Lid, to cater for larger loads or when complete access to the tub is required.
The unique hinge system enables factory sport bars to be fitted, without compromising access to the cargo space or interfering with the vehicle cabin when raised.
Aluminium T-channels on the top surface of the Tango Sport Lid enable the fitment of Thule and Rhino roof bars and accessories to further increase storage space and practicality.
The Tango Sport Lid also incorporates central locking via the vehicle key fob, as well as an emergency key should the vehicle battery fail.
Tango Mount System
At the heart of ARB’s new Tango system are the cleverly designed mounting rails. The extruded aluminium rails bolt directly to the inside-edge of the tub using the existing mounting holes, and with no drilling required.
By attaching over the top edge of the tub sides, the mount system also provides protection in an area that’s often easily damaged during loading and unloading.
Adding to its versatility, the side rails also incorporate a T-channel within the top face. This is designed to be compatible with a range of Thule and Rhino accessories such as cross bars, cargo trays, bike carriers and more, which can be used to provide additional storage space.
Loadmaster Cargo Organiser
Separating contents and preventing cargo from sliding around are two inherent challenges that exist when packing a ute tub. Providing a solution to both of these challenges, is the Tango Loadmaster cargo organiser.
Suitable for use with all vehicle specific Tango mount systems, the Tango Loadmaster simply slides into the mount rails on each side of the vehicle tub. This can then be used to partition the area and separate cargo in line with the owner’s specific requirements.
An extending frame and flexible hinges on each end of the Tango Loadmaster allows for both parallel and angled positioning of the barrier, while two built-in pockets provide additional storage for smaller items.
ARB’s new Tango load system is now available for the current Toyota HiLux, Ford Ranger and Nissan Navara NP300, with more models under development.

ARB’S NEW ALUMINIUM ENCASED AWNING HAS YOU COVERED
Adding to ARB’s already extensive range of touring equipment, the new awning design provides an alternative to the external soft case with a functionally superior aluminium housing.
The ARB awning has always been a popular product in the 4WD community, and over time, has evolved significantly. The latest addition to the ARB awning range is a 2.5m x 2.5m awning, encased in an anodised aluminium housing.
Opening and closing the unit is made easy with the use of UV treated, marine-grade, quick release cords. The three cords eliminate the need for zips, and the new flip-up lid provides unmatched simplicity.
The awning features ARB’s proven 300gsm, PU coated, waterproof and UV protected canvas. To prevent friction within the housing, causing wear on the canvas, abrasion resistant material has been added to better protect the awning when rolled up or deployed.
Supported by heavy duty, expandable anodised aluminium poles, the ARB Aluminium Awning provides great strength and resistance to corrosion.
Compatible with the ARB Deluxe awning room, Mesh Multi Mat and a variety of ARB’s wind breaks, this awning is exceptionally versatile.
It uses the same mounting methods as other ARB awnings, either attaching directly to roof racks, or to ARB “L” brackets which can be purchased separately.
The new ARB Aluminium Encased Awning is both a stylish and practical addition to ARB’s awning range.
