FORD RANGER PX MK2 ARB ACCESSORIES RANGE EXPLAINED
ARB has updated us with a current rundown on it’s accessory range for the Ford Ranger PX MK2.
Let’s start out the front.
Alloy Bull Bar
Not everyone wants to hang a lump of steel off the front of their Ranger, and for those that want a lighter, easier on the suspension option, ARB has a Alloy bar that might just do the job.
Constructed from three grades of aluminium alloy to maximise corrosion resistance and fatigue strength, the ARB Alloy bar uses 4mm aluminium alloy for the outer wings and centre pan. The alloy outer tubing is 60mm in diameter and the whole box and dice is fitted up using a steel mounting system.
It’s strong enough to be fitted with winches of up to 10,000lbs capacity and can be dressed up with optional ARB Fog Lights.
Summit Bull Bar
The Summit steel bull bar features a 60.3mm outer frame and cross bar tubing, as well as an extensive use of press forming in the construction to maximise strength. The bar uses a split pan design for maximum strength and airflow as well as under wing protection panels to protect the vulnerable lower parts of the Ranger.
The Summit bar is able to accommodate a range of low mount electric winches, up to 10,000lb, and includes twin Hi-Lift jack points. Provision for ARB Intensity LED and IPF driving lights are integrated into the top pan of the bar, while a redesigned fog light surround and ARB LED indicator/clearance light assembly is included as standard.
Summit Side Rails and Steps
Designed to integrate with the Summit steel bar, the Summit side rails and protection steps protect the vehicles vulnerable quarter and door panels. The side rail attaches to the bull bar using a unique ARB patented system, while clear anodised tread plates provides easy entry and exit to the vehicle.
A stand alone protection step is also available for the Ranger.
Summit Rear Step Tow Bar
The all new Summit rear step tow bar for the PX Ranger is designed to appear as original vehicle equipment in finish and integration. The through-tub mounting system attaches to the chassis to provide high levels of strength.
The 50mm tow hitch is rated at 3500kgs, matching the Rangers tow rating. A lift up cover panel conceals trailer electrics, with the option to fit an ARB air compressor outlet, rear camera connection and a 50amp Anderson plug.
Features unique to the Ascent canopy range include the addition of remote central locking via the vehicle key, electronic unlatching of side lift up and rear windows, a standard roof vent for reducing the entry of dust and an over rail attachment system.
The electronic unlatching, combined with frameless windows, allows easy one-handed operation and removes the need for locking hardware on the exterior of the side window glass.
A choice of frameless lift-up or pop-out windows are available. A number of roof rack options and other accessories are available to meet individual load requirements.
ARB Frontier Long Range Fuel Tank
The ARB Frontier fuel tank is roto-moulded to follow the underbody contours of the new Ranger, allowing for increased capacity and extended fuel range.
The tank is made from cross-linked polymer which is impact resistant, flexible and UV stable.
The one piece construction eliminates seems or welds in the body of the tank, and has a 7-9mm wall thickness.
ARB Sportguard Ute Liner
The new ARB Sportguard for the Ranger is a five piece design that snaps together and requires no drilling to fit.
The ARB Sportguard has an anti-slip floor and incorporates a gutter channel in the floor design to direct liquid spills from the tray to the tailgate area. The tailgate piece with Sportguard is a “cap off” design, engineered to complement the under rail design of the ute liner.
Designed and manufactured in Australia, ARB Air Lockers are available for the PXII Ranger and feature a two piece design, forged gears and come with a five year warranty.
