ARB Tailgate Assist

Trying to juggle whatever you're carrying is a feat in itself, let alone managing the weight of the tailgate. Wouldn't it be useful if you had a little helping hand? ARB's new Tailgate Assist is here to be that hand.


Using two different struts, the Tailgate Assist reduces the effort required to operate the tailgate. The passenger side strut helps to slowly lower the tailgate and the driver side facilitates raising it. The struts have been co-developed with Stabilus, the world-renowned strut manufacturer and ARB has designed a unique mounting system to ensure longevity.

"Tailgates vibrate a lot and tubs move when you're driving in rough conditions, so we've put these struts through rigorous tests. We're confident in the product and know all the components are going to last," says ARB Product Manager, Rhys Brown.

The ARB Tailgate Assist is now available for:
- Ford Ranger (PXI, PXII, PXIII and Raptor)
- Mazda BT-50 (2011+)
- Holden/Chevrolet Colorado (2012+)
- Isuzu D-MAX (2012+)
- Nissan Navara (NP300 2015+)
- Mitsubishi Triton (MQ 2015+)
- Volskwagen Amarok (2010+)

Additional models are under development, including the Toyota Hilux which will be available soon.
