Whether the goal of your build is to turn a 4x4 into a workhorse or an all-out adventure rig, it can benefit from improvements to its load-carrying capabilities.
Rola has unveiled a nifty roof-rack solution, while Terrain Tamer has brought out a new set of parabolic springs.
Terrain Tamer parabolic springs
The new parabolic springs from Terrain Tamer are the result of extensive research and development, combined with the use of the latest in steel technology.
Terrain Tamer parabolic springs offer a number of advantages over standard multi-leaf spring setups, with fewer leaves (two or three) that feature a parabolic taper (thicker in the centre and becoming thinner toward each end). This allows each leaf to act independently for enhanced flexibility in operation, without sacrificing load-carrying capacity.
Another benefit of the parabolic system is less inter-leaf friction than standard multi-leaf jobbies and, thanks to no contact between each leaf, the chance of rust, noise and unwanted stiffness is reduced.
Add in a 500kg load rating combined with a softer, quieter ride and you’ve got a very attractive offering from the gurus at Terrain Tamer.
Titan Tray by Rola
The all-new Titan Tray from Rola is lightweight and includes unique design features that provide excellent strength and durability. The Titan Tray features a mitred corner design and reinforced panels that are 1.5 times stronger than previously for a claimed carrying capacity up to 300kg (dependent on vehicle roof-weight limit).
The accessory channels allow users to customise the tray to suit requirements by adding a wide range of Rola (and other popular branded) accessories, such as awnings, and shovel and jerrycan holders. The slide-in mounting brackets can be placed between any plank on the tray for attaching to most popular roof-racks with an accessory channel. The Titan Tray is available in four sizes.
