Fully-welded from extruded aluminum with a cross beam design, the BASE Rack has no need for a supporting subframe and exerts no flex under load.; Development - To ensure we meet your expectations, ARB invests heavily in research and development. Our design and engineering team utilizes the latest CAD, CAM parametric modeling systems and finite element analysis packages, and is supported by subcontract companies and universities for special projects like vibration, strength and crash testing. With an air bag equipped vehicle for example, it is essential that the vehicle?s crush rate and air bag triggering is not altered when a bull bar is installed. Our exhaustive testing programs ensure ARB bull bars meet these requirements. We also devote considerable time and resources toward to sourcing new products from around the world.

The BASE Rack takes accessories and cargo loading to a whole new level of simplicity, speed, and personalization. The BASE Rack is fully-welded aluminum for lightweight strength that doesn't flex under load. It can therefore be mounted close to the vehicle roof for a slimline aesthetic and reduced drag. Its dovetail extrusion attachment system runs the full perimeter of the rack and along each internal beam providing endless mounting and attachment options. Adding, removing, and repositioning accessories and roof loads is quick and easy and individual items may be installed or removed without disturbing the whole load. Unlike traditional roof rack channels, the BASE Rack dovetail system doesn't collect dust and debris. This kit includes a 49 in (L) x 45 in (W) BASE Rack, mount kit with wind deflector to suit the Toyota Tacoma along with full guard rails. The rails attach quickly and easily to the dovetail extrusion around the rack's perimeter with some additional fixing points at the rack corners. A full guard rail system can be taken on or off in just a few minutes. The rails running around the perimeter of the rack act as a load block, helping to prevent larger items from shifting when loading and unloading, as well as during transit.
