Opposite Lock Brushrails and Steps
If you are planning to deckout your vehicle, brushrails and steps are a great option. There are 3 main reasons why siderails and steps are added to a vehicle. First and foremost; for protection, Secondly; to stop mud and rocks flicking up and damaging the panels on the vehicle, and thirdly, to improve accessibility to the vehicle.
When considering buying a winch, we have a huge range of winches including Warn, VRS and Dobinsons. Our most popular winch is the Dobinsons winch with Synthetic Rope. The Dobinsons winch is an absolute essential to the weekend off-road warrior. Dobinsons’ winches are a neat winch, that come standard with a handy wireless remote. The Dobinsons winch is available in 9’500pd or 12’500pd, steel cable or synthetic rope. A tip to save money on fitting time is to get a winch fitted at time of fitting the bulbar.
Opposite Lock Spotlights
Did you know, the brighter light is on the front of your vehicle at night, the less fatigue you’ll have to fight. The three brands sold instore include; Opposite Lock, Lightforce and Ultra Vision. Our most popular LED spotlight is the Opposite Lock 9inch LED Spotlight.
Snorkels are designed to keep your engine free of water, free of dust, and to keep a greater flow of air running through. Did you know; one shot glass of water is enough to drown an engine! Setting up your vehicle for the big lap, or to do the weekend off-road outing, a snorkel is essential. Safari snorkels have a great reputation, and for a good reason!
Uniden UHF and Aerial
Where ever you are, on or off-road, communication is critical! Here at Autokit, we sell both Uniden and GME product. Both Uniden and GME are great looking units that are Australian made and come with a great warranty.
Rhino Pioneer Rack
Roofracks are a great option for carrying items including Kayaks, bikes etc that do not fit in the cab or rear of the vehicle but add extra storage and a place to mount an awning. This NP300/ D23 was fitted with a Rhino Platform Rack. Rhino Racks are a very popular product for both tourers setting up to do the big lap and for the weekend off-road warriors.
When it comes to accessorising the rear of a vehicle, it all comes down to personal preference and what is most practical for your application. The Tonneau cover adds no weight to the rear of a vehicle, whilst providing protection for your load. Although the tonneau cover is not lockable, it provides protection from the weather. Other options for the rear of a vehicle include canopies, hard lids and Roll-R Covers
This Nissan Navara was fitted with a Tough Dog suspension kit. When setting up your vehicle, one of the most important things when setting up a vehicle with suspension is doing it correctly with the right weights. Our staff at Autokit are fully trained to know what your vehicle needs to improve the ride of your 4x4. Fitting the incorrect weighted springs to your vehicle will result in a harsh ridged ride. We would recommend fitting all the other accessories to the vehicle first before doing suspension, therefore you will get the weights right. Here at Autokit, we have a range of Suspension Kit brands available for most vehicles including; Outback Armour Suspension, Tough Dog Suspension and Dobinson 4x4 Suspension.
Opposite Lock Rear Step Towbar
The Opposite Lock Rear Step Towbar integrates towing and protection into one bar. This sleek designed rear step protection towbar is one of the essential accessories for a weekend off-roader. The Rear step also gives greater access to the roof of a canopy and doubles as awesome protection for the rear of your 4x4.
Happy Easter Everyone!
