New ARB BASE Rack Fitments, Mounting Accessories Extend Possibilities for the Innovative Roof Rack System

LAS VEGAS, Nevada., November 1, 2021 - ARB 4x4 Accessories took the roof rack to an entirely new level with the release of its BASE Rack platform in 2020. With tailorable ease-of-use at its core, the BASE - Build Attach Set Explore - Rack is low profile with horizontal bars for strength and features convenient dove-tail attachments.

Gone are the days of compromise. Mount a basket for the weekend camping trip, run side rails only for the construction project, then strip down to a flat rack for the canoe. Change, configure, build, and modify at will. The BASE Rack stands apart as the most modular design in the market.

In the past year, fit kits have been released to suit the following:

  • Wrangler JLU
  • Toyota

  • 4Runner, 5th Gen
  • Landcruiser, 100 & 200 Series
  • FJ Cruiser
  • Tacoma [December 2021]
  • Ford

  • Ranger, MY19-21
  • Bronco [Expected Early 2022]
  • The first set of BASE Rack attachments included provision for tie-downs and ratchet straps, traction boards, farm jacks, lightbars, awnings, spare tires, jerry cans, gas tanks, roller kit, and a t-slot adaptor. Joining the initial set this year are: heavy duty awning brackets, bridge plate options to suit rooftop tents, lightbar mounts, and assorted vertical and horizontal attachments in various widths.

    Fully-customizable side-rail configuration and a suite of accessories leveraging a dovetail-style attachment system provide adventurers the speed and flexibility they need to transform the weekday workhorse into the weekend explorer.

    The dovetail system provides flexibility to attach a wide range of accessories where needed, without disturbing other cargo. The side-mounting profile also provides full use of the beams’ top surface and allows the beams to support cargo without protruding tie-down points.

    The BASE Rack is a full-welded, aluminum design providing weight savings without sacrificing strength and durability. The fully-welded beams that run the width of the vehicle, give the BASE rack the strength of the steel racks, at a fraction of the weight.

    The sleek, low-profile design integrates into the vehicle’s overall appearance. Because of the strength in the cross beams, there is no need for a sub-frame thus lowering the rack height of the vehicle.

    An Australian forefather of overlanding, ARB 4×4 Accessories continues to push the limits of what explorers and adventurers can do with their 4WD vehicles. In 1975, the roof rack was in fact the first product manufactured and sold by ARB. Over the course of 45 years, ARB engineers have continuously improved stronger, lighter, and more versatile racks leading up to the BASE Rack.


    ARB is Australia’s largest manufacturer and distributor of 4×4 accessories. Its international presence includes offices in the US and an export network that extends through more than 120 countries around the globe. The ARB philosophy, however, has never wavered from its original course – quality, reliability, and practicality above all else.
