Due to the long rear overhang on many modern 4×4 wagons and dual cab utes, rear quarter panels and factory bumper bars are very susceptible to damage, particularly when traversing steep, rocky terrain.

There is no better way to protect the back of your vehicle than with ARB’s range of rear protection equipment. Manufactured to extremely high standards for maximum strength and designed specifically to suit each vehicle for the optimum fit, our protection equipment selection includes a variety of different models. Rear step tow bars are available for pick-ups, along with rear bars (some of which incorporate wheel carriers), to cater for the diverse needs of 4WDers. All types integrate a heavy duty towing system for maximum functionality, but also incorporate individual features that differ for specific models.



  • Wheel/jerry can carriers can be optioned on either side of the rear bumper on most vehicles
  • A single carrier can be fitted, or the rear bumper can be installed without any carriers at all (neat insert panels are used in this instance)
  • Twin 33” or a single 35” tire can be accommodated on most vehicles
  • Carriers are mounted via dual shear pivots for maximum strength
  • Spare tire is secured to the stud plate with a lock nut with the provision to fit a padlock to secure the stud plate to the carrier
  • Multi-fit spare wheel stud system provides flexibility for alternate rim selection
  • Wing sections can be removed and replaced if they sustain damage
  • Incorporates heavy-duty towing system, or integration with original equipment tow point on some models
  • Dual, laminated towing points and jacking points
  • Extruded alloy step section
  • Supplied in a durable powder coat finish with optional color coding available
  • Provision to mount an optional HF anntena bracket and camp light

* Certain ARB Rear Bumper models may not incorporate all of the above features


Not all vehicles require tire carriers and jerry can holders. A rear bumper alone provides greatly improved protection, versatility and vehicle access. Vehicle-specific design ensures excellent ground clearance and departure angles along with a stylish and adventurous look for your 4×4.

Manufactured from steel for maximum strength, an ARB Rear Bumper features a center recess to accommodate various sized tires (mounted on factory tire carriers) along with dual jacking points and a low-slip tread to facilitate easy access to both the roof and inside of the vehicle.
