ARS Front Hoop

ARS is the only rack that features a "load bearing" front hoop without the need for additional support; this strength is the bedrock that allows our rack systems to withstand fore and aft thrust, side load forces, and prevents horizontal racking (the twisting/flexing out of a rigid or supportive state).

Integrated Weld-On Handles

The front hoop light bar pro has welded-on 1" x .120 wall steel tube handles that let you get up and into your Jeep and also provide easy access to the optional Kat Walk accessory or roof rack.

Steel Pier Plates

JL Wrangler Hoop Pier Plates

The Front Hoop Columns are attached with 3/16" Steel Pier-Plates that connect to 16 factory steel mounting points along with 2 additional fasteners at the front assembly of the Jeep body, then the pier plates are discretely covered with the factory cowl for a clean OE look.

Tube Diameter - Size Matters

ARS uses 2" diameter tube for maximum strength. Just a simple visual comparison shows the material used for ARS components far surpasses inferior brands.
