Truck accessory: Light bars for most current model trucks
Utility work trucks: A.R.E. partners with Rigid Industries to offer light bars as option for MX Series truck cap.
Utility vehicles: A.R.E. Accessories now offers Rigid Industries' E-Series LED Light Bars as optional equipment on their fiberglass MX Series truck caps, which are available for most current model year pickup trucks in all cab and bed configurations. The MX Series cap sports an aerodynamic raised roof design, providing extra headroom and storage capacity, and has a full walk-in door option for easy rear access.
A.R.E. designed a black powder coated aluminum bracket to fit inside the recessed area located in front of the MX Series fiberglass cap for optimum light bar placement. The light bracket features the A.R.E. logo on both ends with the A.R.E. insignia across the face plate. The light bar will be factory installed with no exposed wiring, and the on/off light switch can be mounted by the truck's dash or on a roof console. Rigid E-Series LED Light Bars can be easily retrofitted to any existing A.R.E. MX Series truck cap.
This is the first offering in a new joint marketing partnership that has been developed between A.R.E. and Rigid Industries that came as a result of both companies working together on industry project truck builds. "Partnering with companies that take quality and details to new levels is what it's all about," said Dave Davis, vice president of sales, Rigid Industries. "All of us at Rigid Industries are excited to elevate the innovation with a company like A.R.E. Accessories." A leader in LED lighting technology, Rigid Lighting products provide very high light output and require very little power to run, reducing battery drain as opposed to traditional lighting.
A.R.E. began manufacturing aluminum frame truck caps in 1969 and has become a leading manufacturer of fiberglass truck caps and hard tonneau covers. At its ISO-9001:2008-certified manufacturing facilities, A.R.E.'s more than 700 employees create the products that are sold through a network of more than 650 independent authorized dealers.
