2012 On Toyota Tacoma ARB Deluxe Winch Bar

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

ARB Tacoma 220x154 2012 On Toyota Tacoma ARB Deluxe Winch BarDESIGN & DEVELOPMENT:

To allow fitment to the 2012 & On Toyota Tacoma, the previous Tacoma ARB Deluxe Winch Bar had to be redesigned with a number of small changes. The main changes were in the protection tubing to prevent the obstruction of the headlight beam from the updated Tacoma headlight system. Another change had to be made to the top of the bumper. The 2012 On Toyota Tacoma grill hangs further forward which interfered with our previous bumper. This was fixed by adding additional clearance between the ARB bumper and grill and utilizing a trimmed portion of the factory Tacoma bumper. This new bar incorporates all the same features as the previous model. Read More→

ARB Intensity 194x220 ARB INTENSITY LED LIGHTSIn 2009 ARB engineers started a development program to produce an ARB driving light with a completely new design incorporating the latest LED technologies.

Unlike light bars that were growing in popularity, ARB required a light that was compatible with current bull bar designs and traditional driving light mounting points. They also needed to be a legal fitment which, in many states, light bars are not.

Many ARB customers prefer a combination of a spot and spread driving light due to the various driving conditions encountered in general off-roading. Most LED light bars on the market are considered great lights for slower off road driving where the ability to see great distances is not so critical. For ARB’s new light to compete with the best the market can offer in Halogen and HID lighting, it needed to give not only the broad flood beam associated with light bars but also a spot beam with the ability to penetrate longer distances.

208 220x145 2010+ TOYOTA FJ CRUISER ROOF CONSOLEToyota’s FJ Cruiser is a retro vehicle, inspired by its iconic predecessor the FJ40. The FJ40 was a capable off road vehicle, but offered little in the way of interior features. While clearly more sophisticated than its ancestor, the current day FJ Cruiser has remained true to early 40 series interior styling. It has a sparse vertical dash that offers limited storage and accessory mounting locations.

The Outback Roof Console provides a practical location for your CB or long range radio. Positioning the radio just above the rear view mirror ensures it is clearly visible from the driving position. The microphone and cable are hooked out of the way, yet are easily reached when needed. Roof consoles arrive ready for a standard DIN size radio installation with optional sized adapters available (see chart below) . Read More→

The 2012 face lift 200 Series Toyota Land Cruiser features updated head lamps, grille and bumper designs which led to the requirement for a new ARB Deluxe bar design.

For models fitted with forward facing camera, a relocation kit is available. Read More→
