THERE’S no shortage of aftermarket kit on the market, so we’ve compiled a shortlist of the hottest products currently in catalogues.
Here’s a sample of some of the best kit you can add to your fourbie.
ARB DIGITAL TYRE INFLATOR & AIR PRESSURE GAUGE
ON AN average 4x4 adventure, punters are likely to cross all sorts of terrain – mud, water, rocks, dust – so it pays to carry the right gear to keep an eye on tyre pressures. ARB’s digital tyre inflator and air pressure gauge makes it simple to check pressures and alter it via simple operation. The unit features an easy-to-read, large LCD screen, an ergonomic thumb-operated inflator lever, a bleed button, a clip-on chuck, and a battery capacity indicator. The pressure range is: 0-200 psi, 0-414 bar, 0-1400 kPa, or 0-14 kgF/cm2.
OPPOSITE LOCK 70 SERIES BULLBARS
TO KEEP the front end of Cruiser safe, Opposite Lock has released a MY17 Land Cruiser 70 Series range of bullbars. The Premium Steel Post Type Bullbar, made from premium grade steel, provides superior protection and maintains the Cruiser’s already pleasing aesthetics. OL’s Steel Fleet Bullbar is a simplified design for those who are thriftier. Both have been uniquely designed by Opposite Lock engineers to complement the single-cab LC’s original looks.

MSA 4X4 EXPLORER STORAGE DRAWER SYSTEM
THE storage experts at MSA 4x4 have put their minds together to create the Explorer Aluminium Storage Drawer System, what it claims to be Australia’s most advanced 4WD storage system ever. The system maximises storage space, yet remains similar in size on the outside to most other systems. Features include Pro-Glide technology, which handles up to 250kg per pair of drawers; Open-stay block, which holds a drawer open on steep inclines; the MSA 4X4-designed handle lock system for maximum security; and an LED strip light flush mounted to the inside of the drawer. The system is compatible with MSA 4X4 drop slides, fridge slides and fridge barriers. The ADR-compliant system comes with a lifetime guarantee.
WE’VE done countless off-road recoveries here at 4X4 Australia, and the consensus always seems to be that a set of MaxTrax will get you out of trouble better than other recovery board. The lightweight boards measure up at 150mm long X 330mm wide x 85mm tall, so they can easily be stored in your fourbie’s tray, or on a roof rack for easy access. The clever design will clear you from mud, snow or sand!
