ARB Introduces Summit Protection Range
ARB Corporation Ltd, a world leader in aftermarket 4×4 accessories, is pleased to announce the introduction of ARB Summit, the next generation of vehicle protection systems for modern four wheel drive vehicles.
As consumer demand for a greater level of vehicle integration from aftermarket accessories continues to grow, ARB is addressing this concern with the introduction of Summit. Comprising a full range of protection systems, including front, rear and side protective options, ARB Summit was developed and styled to provide a modern interpretation of the renowned ARB protection range that would complement modern dual cab and wagon vehicles through a fresh, contemporary design language.
Building upon our proven air bag compatible bull bar mounting architecture, the Summit bull bar is the first product in the new range. Unique design elements include the 30mm edge radius on the wings and centre pan, wider press formed cover straps, 60.3mm top frame tubing, two piece polyethylene buffers and redesigned fog light surrounds, to name a few.
Provided as standard, the high output LED indicator and clearance lights provide a distinctive on road presence with long service life.
With twin aerial tabs and driving light mounting provisions, the Summit bull bar provides an ideal platform for additional vehicle accessorisation.
In the interest of improving usability, the Summit bull bar removes the need for winch clutch cut outs in the top pan of the bar, replaced by an easy to use access port integrated directly into the front grille section.
The Summit bar accepts a range of Warn, Magnum, Bushranger and Smittybilt winches up to 10,000lbs and is the first model to include an integrated control box mount to conceal winch electrics behind the bar. This further enhances air flow to the vehicle, while protecting the control box from damage off road.
Summit’s attention to detail continues throughout, with the inclusion of a patented side rail attachment system that couples the bull bar and larger 60.3mm side rail tubing securely without any visible fixation. A reinforced Nylon cover sleeve protects the attachment system and provides a higher level of aesthetic finish.
An all new anodised aluminium tread plate makes entering and exiting the vehicle safer and aids traction in inclement conditions.
Adding to the overall visual aesthetics of the Summit range is the use of synchro pulse controlled welding. The system controls the current pulse so only a single droplet of filler metal is detached each time, resulting in a virtually spatter free weld that offers seam quality in line with that of the TIG process
The Summit bull bar and side rails and protection steps are currently available for the Ford Ranger PX (2011 on). Additional vehicle applications will follow.
