ARB Sportguard Ute liner revealed

The ARB Sportguard Ute liner has been revealed offering “model specific moulding” and snap together fitting with no drilling required.

FEW UTES come with tray liners, and so ARB devised the ARB Sportguard which can be retro-fitted to a number of current model utes with no drilling required. According to ARB, the Sportguard has been designed “to suit the needs and requirements of both trade and touring customers alike”.

Cleverly, the Sportguard incorporates a gutter channel in the floor which is designed to direct water from the tray out to the tailgate area where it can drain away. This is great if you don’t have a canopy on your tray, or a tonneau cover and it rains, or if you need to wash the tray down. The Sportguard has been designed to allow for airflow under the liner and keep the vehicle’s drainage ports open.

“Unlike a traditional two piece ute liner, the ARB Sportguard contains a clever new five piece design that simply snaps together with no drilling required, making the installation process straightforward and easy to remove if needed. The multi-piece tub liner is cleverly designed to minimise wasted load space by following the contour of the vehicle tray and by retaining the original factory load tie down points,” ARB said.

“ARB Sportguard is compatible with ARB ute lids, OE sportbars and, with minimal modifications, ARB canopies. Unique spacers have been included in the ARB Sportguard fitting kits to ensure hard-point mounting is maintained for both the tie down points and the canopy bracket fasteners.”
