ARB's New Ford Super Duty Modular Deluxe Winch Bumper

ARB’s New Ford Super Duty Modular Deluxe Winch Bumper

DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT:

Very modern in styling yet distinctively ARB in heritage, this new Modular Bull Bar is truly innovative and utilizes a new modular design.

Three distinct configurations are available, allowing for customization to meet individual needs or preferences. Many considerations were included in the research and development process, but first and foremost the bar needed to retain the ARB core principles of quality, reliability and practicality. This new style of Modular Bull Bar is a direct response to the research and collaboration performed by ARB’s expert engineers.The result is a Modular Bull Bar that provides features for any Super Duty, no matter if it is a dedicated hunting rig that takes off for the back country, a fleet truck, or a daily driver that must be ready for any adventure.

The tough and rugged appearance of the Ford Super Duty, with its large front fascia, made the styling of these Modular Bull Bar kits a unique challenge.This new design features a large split center pan, formed wings, and a center upright assembly specifically designed to match and carry the truck’s styling.

Each of the integrated features were also designed from the ground up as exemplified by the all new IntegritTM textured black powder coat, the unique press formed fog light housings, and the ability to mount a variety of winches (up to a Warn 16.5ti) within the bumper.

PROTECTION & STYLING CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Durable steel construction for maximum protection.
  • Superbly engineered, airbag compatible mounting system.
  • Unique, configurable design allows for customized level of protection and appearance.
  • Vehicle specific design to complement the design of 2011+ Super Duty trucks.
  • Super Duty specific split pan to accommodate airflow requirements and provide access to winch handle, if a winch is

    fitted.

  • Open center pan design highlights winch fitment.
  • Will accommodate Warn Heavy Weight electric winches up to the 16.5ti model.
  • Provided kit for mounting a hawse or roller fairlead.
  • Twin Hi-Lift Jack lifting points located under the pan of the bar.
  • Provision to accommodate a range of IPF & ARB Driving Lights.
  • Fog lights provided as standard with each kit.
  • Two antenna brackets located on the outer wing frames.
  • Press formed and styled upright cover straps.

New Product Announcement: 7″ Round ARB Intensity LED Off-Road Light

 

AR21 Intensity

DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT:

Following on from the success of the innovative AR32 Intensity LED driving lights, a new compact model has been developed.

The new AR21 Intensity LED driving light is available in either spot or flood beam configuration and with 21 LEDs the performance packs a punch considering their size, while utilizing cutting edge technology and designs pioneered by the AR32 Intensity LED models.

Physically similar in size to an IPF 900 series light, the AR21 has an outer diameter of 7.25in and standing 8.25in high including mounting bracket. Utilizing the same mounting template as the larger AR32, it also includes the use of pinning bolts where bumper designs allows.

Like the larger model, the AR21 features a unique molded rubber seal between the polycarbonate lens and pressure cast aluminium body that in conjunction with a Gore® breather and sealed Deutsch electrical connectors ensures a waterproof rating of IP68 with submersion of up to 3m (10ft).

Built from corrosion resistant materials, the aluminium body is finished in a textured polyester powder coat that passes the ISO7253, 3000 hour salt spray test.The distinctive red lens retaining bezel is UV resistant.This combined with the 304 stainless steel mount makes the ARB Intensity light extremely weather and corrosion resistant.

COOLING:

AR21_Back

The pressure cast aluminium housing acts as a heat sink to draw heat generated from the electronics away from the LED array, thus increasing efficiency and life of the LEDs. Cooling fins cast into the rear of the housing increase the cooling surface area of the light body by more than 200%.

 

SECURITY: 

 

AR21_mount

Each light has a cap screw pivot bolt with tamper proof TORX® security fasteners used on the adjuster nut for improved security.

The main mounting bolt has a M12 x 1.75 thread which accepts the traditional style security nut and Key as used with IPF lights (P/No. DLL12 available separately).

ELECTRONICS: _DSC5239 copy

The heart of the light is its electronics. Using SMD type Osram LEDs for increased efficiency and brightness, the circuit board sits deep within the light body,offering protection to the advanced circuitry while mounting directly to the cast housing for optimum heat transfer and cooling efficiency.

OPTICS: 

The advanced Patent design optics incorporate both a reflector and lens to control the light emitted from the LED with 93% efficiency.

Designed to offer different light projection patterns, they are the only components that differ between the flood and spot model lights with the flood offering 20° spread and spot a 10° beam.

ADVANCED SEALING: AR21_seal_blog

A unique molded rubber seal sits between the polycarbonate lens and cast aluminium body, creating a watertight and dust proof seal to allow the light to achieve an IP68 rating- meaning complete protection against dust ingress and submersion beyond 10ft.

To allow expansion of the heated air within the light and suction caused by rapid cooling if immersed, the light is fitted with a Gore® membrane breather which allows the light to breathe without moisture ingress.

The red bezel is integral to the compression of the rubber seal and should not be removed or modified otherwise water ingress may occur.

CLEAR COVER: 

Manufactured from 3.5mm injection moulded polycarbonate and hard coated for scratch resistance, the clear cover is standard fitment providing the ultimate protection from impacts. Being 100% optically clear, it does not effect light output performance.

A warning appears on the outer rim of the cover stating- ‘Warning: High output light source. Do not look directly into optics when light is operating’.

A range of colored covers are under development and will be available as an added option.

COVER ATTACHMENT:

The unique body design features a slotted recess for the clear covers to positively attach to the body and prevent cover rotation.To remove the cover, simply place fingers behind the cover retaining tags and lever outwards whilst pulling the tangs forward.
