Sizes & Guard Rail Systems

The BASE Rack is available in a number of widths and lengths to complement the vast range of 4WDs on the market. Sold standard as a low-profile platform rack, it can easily transform into a touring or trade rack by simply installing the rail system that best suits your needs!



Available sizes

The BASE Rack is available in nine sizes to suit a huge range of vehicle applications.

As each rack size decreases, the rack drops one internal beam. The strength of the BASE Rack has also allowed the exclusive fitment of a 1,835mm rack to the full range of ARB canopies.

Removable guard rails

The BASE Rack system is available in full, quarter, three-quarter and trade configurations. The rails attach quickly and easily to the dovetail extrusion around the rack’s perimeter with some additional fixing points at the rack corners.

BASE Rack owners can have a full guard rail system on or off in just a few minutes!

ARB BASE Rack Guard Rail Systems - Full Rails

Full rails

Designed for the tourer. The rails running around the perimeter of the rack act as a load block, helping to prevent larger items such as swags and tents from shifting when loading and unloading, as well as during transit.

ARB BASE Rack Guard Rail Systems - 3/4 Rails

3/4 rails

A cross between full and trade rails, 3/4 rails, along with an optional roller kit, assist with easy rear loading of large and awkward items whilst still providing load security at the front of the rack. Also designed for rear folding rooftop tents, subject to tent width.

ARB BASE Rack Guard Rail Systems - 1/4 Rails

1/4 Rails

Perfect for campers, this style of rail is great for rooftop tents whilst still providing ample storage and load security at the front of the rack.

ARB BASE Rack Guard Rail Systems - Trade Rails

Trade Rails

Great for loading long items such as timber and ladders with an optional roller kit to help glide long or awkward items onto the rack. The side rails prevent items from slipping or rolling off the rack during loading and allow you to fill the rack right up to the edge.

Vehicle fit kits

Mounting kits are available for fitment to all Ascent, Classic and Classic Plus canopies of current model (and a selection of older model) dual-cab utes. Mounting systems are available for all gutter mount vehicles which ARB already has a solution for, while new blade rail mounting systems have been developed for the Toyota LandCruiser 200, Prado 90, 120 and 150 as well as the Jeep Wrangler JL.

The range will expand with more wagon applications, as well as a comprehensive range of dual cab ute cabin applications.


In the table below, you’ll find a list of canopies and vehicles which BASE Rack mounting systems are currently available for. While most rack lengths and mounting kits are readily available, others are available for pre-order. Please note: Mount kits are not available for all rack sizes for all vehicles and canopies.
