For this 4×4 project, a significant number of 4×4 accessories were installed on a 2009 Tacoma TRD. On the ARB side of things, we installed a front bull bar with skid plates and fog lights, a rear locker with 456 Nitro gears and single air compressor, and Old Man Emu Dakar rear leaf springs.
ARB bull bars are loaded with features aimed at making remote area travel safer, utilizing an all-steel construction for maximum strength and protection. Unlike most brush guards and bumpers, ARB bull bars incorporate a fully engineered mounting system which completely replaces the factory bumper.
Created to provide 100% traction on demand, without sacrificing any of your vehicle’s highway driving performance, ARB Air Lockers employ a 12 volt air compressor designed to activate (and deactivate) a solid and durable locking mechanism inside the differential. This gives you the traction you need, when you need it, all at the flick of a switch, and all within the safety and comfort of the driver’s seat.
Part of ARB’s integrated 4×4 suspension systems, Old Man Emu Dakar leaf springs are engineered to provide optimum ride performance, irrespective of the operating conditions the vehicle’s suspension is required to work under.
We also installed a BDS Suspension 6″ suspension system featuring Fox 2.5″ coil-over remote reservoir shocks, Total Chaos upper control arms, custom rock sliders, helix wheels with 35″ Nitto Trail Grapplers M/T, a Viper remote start, a K&N cold air intake, JBA shorty headers, and a Body Armor rear bumper with tire carrier.
