Trail Gear – Keep it Cool!


ARB Fridge Freezers are the ideal way to keep your food and beverages chilled or frozen on your 4×4 adventures, regardless of ambient conditions.

Not to be confused with less effective 12 volt ‘coolers’, the ARB unit is a true refrigerator/freezer. Own one and you’ll never again find your lunch water- logged by shifting ice, and there’ll always be a cold drink on hand during the sweltering summer months. Two separate power cords are included, one for AC operation (120 volt) at home, and one for DC operation (12/24 volt) in your vehicle. The all-new 50 qt model is able to maintain sub-freezing temperatures in 90° f heat, while only drawing an intermittent 1.35 amps per hour from a 12 volt power source. That’s less than a single headlamp draws!  Check out the complete specs here!

Price: MSRP $924.00

Need more than good lights to see!

PIAA Wiper Blades

PIAA windshield wiper blades are made with  silicone rubber, which ensures greater visibility by coating the windshield with silicone to promote continuous water beading in inclement weather. The effect is similar to popular windshield coatings but without the hazy side effects. Water beads up into droplets at low speeds that are easily removed by ordinary wiping. At higher speeds, wind pressure pushes the water off the windshield, often without even requiring wiper use.

The silicone rubber is also twice as durable as traditional rubber, allowing them to perform better over a longer period of time. Plus, the Aero Vogue and Super Silicone blades are refillable with our wiper refills.

PIAA wiper blades maintain a sharp, clean edge and offer better wear resistance in all climates.

Trail Tools

ARB 12 Volt Air Compressor (CKMA12)

So what makes this compressor special? It’s small enough to fit into even the tightest space and quiet enough to mount in the cab. It has enough output to air up four 35″ – 37″ tires in a single duty cycle and typically airs up a 35″ tire in just over two minutes.  And, it works. We’ve tested this unit in ovens, freezers, underwater and in the silty dust of the Simpson Desert and it continues to perform.

Price: $290.00
