A.R.E. announces the expansion of its truck accessory product offering, satisfying market demand for a high-quality, affordable LED lighting program and giving truck owners increased functionality on and off the road.
Rival by A.R.E. LED Lighting goes beyond factory installed options for A.R.E.’s truck caps and tonneau covers to offer exterior lighting that can be used virtually anywhere on the vehicle. The LED lighting is available in a wide range of styles: LED light bars in 10”, 30”, 40” and 50”; cubes and flush mounts for spot or flood lighting; front facing or down facing auxiliary lighting; strobe and beacon safety lighting; and round and square work lights.
“We are hitting the gas pedal with our accessory lineup, offering several lights that can be factory installed with a cap or cover straight from your A.R.E. dealer, as well as options that can be ordered individually to be placed on any vehicle in any location the consumer wants,” explains Bryan Mutchler, marketing manager, A.R.E. Accessories. “From strobe lighting for your work truck fleet to light bars for off road applications, Rival by A.R.E. LED lighting works in both professional and recreational applications. For example, our factory-installed safety and auxiliary lighting is built within the cap and ready to wire, offering a convenience to upfitters by saving time and money.”
Rival by A.R.E. Light Bars deliver bright, crisp white light for heavy duty work and off-road play. The 30” and 40” light bar can be factory installed on A.R.E.’s MX Series truck cap to deliver more light to professionals and weekend warriors. A.R.E.’s flush-mounted cube lighting is designed to be non-intrusive while delivering powerful illumination, making them ideal for truck bumpers and utility beds.
Rival by A.R.E. lighting is currently available through your local A.R.E. dealer, and will be available later this year through select online retailers.
In addition to lighting, A.R.E. offers its Ascend Roof Basket to increase load capacity while maintaining a low profile and rugged look for today’s trucks. Available in two sizes – 55” L x 42” W and 55” L x 52” W – the roof basket is aluminum with black textured powder coat. Consumers can easily add lights with the 360-degree attachment points.
For added lockable storage, the new ShotLock system provides a safe and secure space for valuable items in your home, vehicle or under an A.R.E. cap or cover. The ShotLock QuickDrawer 200M measures 11” x 8” x 3.5” and features a spring-assisted drawer opening, offering universal lockable storage for transporting cash or expensive items from store and restaurants to local banks. Also available is the compact ShotLock Handgun 200M, designed to secure handguns with its military grade 14-gauge steel construction, dual internal locking points, a mechanical lock and top-opening hinge design.
