New ARB Jeep TJ Rear Bumper with Swing Away Tire Carrier
Seattle, WA - ARB 4x4 Accessories, Australian based four-wheel parts manufacturer, has designed a new rear bumper with integrated swing away tire carrier for the Jeep TJ. Capable of carrying a single 37” tire, the new ARB rear bumper is a tire carrier for the true off-roader.
This long-awaited rear bumper and tire carrier assembly was designed with the ability to safely carry an oversized tire without any vibration to the vehicle and address the common customer complaint that existing carriers are heavy or difficult to open. The final product has resulted in a system where a lever combined with a gas-assisting strut opens the carrier with luxurious ease. This gas-assisting strut features a spring-loaded locking pin to hold the carrier open even when on an extreme side hill or uneven terrain. A simple “slam shut” will close the carrier and the locking pin will automatically disengage as soon as the weight is released.
This new ARB rear bumper system provides the strength required for carrying oversized tires while keeping the vibration down and the aesthetics stylishly matched to the ARB front winch bumper.
ARB’s design includes an integrated towing system with 1,984lb rated optional towing hitch and features two additional recovery points built in to the bumper. A 35” tire can be fitted without modifications to the factory brake light. Optional Hi-Lift jack holder and lock nut sets are also available.
“Providing our customers with a rugged and functional rear bumper that will match the styling of their ARB front winch bumper and ARB rock sliders,” says Jim Jackson, President ARB 4x4 Accessories, “will allow our customers to have end to end vehicle protection making for safer days on both the street and the trail.”
Anticipated to be in stock August 1st 2006, this new rear bumper can be ordered from any of the 1000 ARB distributors nationwide. To find an ARB dealer near you, please visit www.arbusa.com.
