New Base Racks for Dual-cab Utes


Expanding the range of the popular BASE Rack, ARB has now released cab racks to suit the some of the most popular dual-cab utes on the market, the Toyota HiLux, Ford Ranger, Isuzu D-MAX and Mazda BT-50.

Featuring a fully welded extruded aluminium design with beams that run the width of the vehicle, the BASE Rack has the strength of steel racks at a fraction of the weight.

Due to the strength in the cross beams, there is no requirement for a sub-frame, getting the rack lower to the roof of the vehicle. The low-profile design means the roof rack looks sleek and integrates into the vehicle’s overall appearance.

Utilising a dovetail system on both side profiles of the rack’s internal beams and the external side of the perimeter beams provides more flexibility to attach a wide range of accessories where you need them and without disturbing other cargo. The side mounting profile also provides full use of the beams’ top surface and allows the beams to support cargo without worrying about protruding tie-down points.

ARB’s range of accessories also makes fitting cargo to your rack more efficient, saving time and effort during the packing process. Each accessory can be placed wherever you need in the moment, allowing you to Make It Your Own.

New Features

Lower profile

The BASE Rack is fully welded from extruded aluminium, which provides a strength and carrying capacity similar to steel racks without the weight. The beams run horizontally, instead of laterally, which gives additional support and rigidity, meaning there is no requirement for sub-framing, allowing the rack to sit lower for a sleeker finish.

More compatible with cargo

The unique dovetail design is featured on the external sides of the perimeter beams and both sides of the cross beams, providing the ultimate level of freedom when it comes to attaching cargo. Unlike channels in traditional racks, the dovetail design won’t collect dust, water or debris. The rack is constructed using box aluminium on all beams, while removable corner caps allow electrical cables to be fed through for roof lighting and solar panels.

Customisable design

The BASE Rack allows for quick and simple customisation, with options to keep it as a flat rack with no rails or purchase the kits to transform it into a rack with 1/4 rails, 3/4 rails, trade rails or full rails as you desire.

More cargo accessories

Fit cargo however you like with a range of accessories making it easier to attach, adjust or remove as you need. Accessories are attached via a simple clamp mount and can be added to any point along the internal or perimeter beams.
