Rugged Rocks and ARB Introduce the New Nissan Frontier Front ARB Air Locker

Expanding the Off-Road Capabilities for the Nissan 4×4 Community

June 29, 2023

Since its inception in 2006, Rugged Rocks has been a strong force in the Nissan 4×4 market. Founder and Nissan 4×4 expert, who has collaborated with ARB on multiple product releases, is proud to announce the introduction of the 2020 and New Nissan Frontier Front ARB Locker. This announcement is another milestone in the ongoing partnership between Rugged Rocks and ARB, with the latter regularly seeking the former’s expertise for Nissan-related tech inquiries.

The new locker is compatible with the 2020+ Nissan Frontier, including the latest 2023 models. This product represents a significant development as it is specifically designed for the stronger front differential of the recent Frontier models. It aims to significantly improve the off-road capability of these vehicles, marking a new era for Nissan’s 4×4 community.

One of the founder’s most notable contributions to this community was the launch of the M205 locker. With the help of the Nissan 4×4 owner community, the project was fast-tracked, resulting in the availability of the locker within just six months. This accomplishment spurred growth in the Nissan 4×4 community and opened the door to regear and lock Nissan Xterras and Frontiers running in the stronger and longer travel Titan drivetrain & suspension.

The journey to this point hasn’t been without its challenges. Convincing ARB of the demand for specific Nissan 4×4 parts in the United States was a significant hurdle, given the relatively low public presence of Nissan 4×4 owners. Yet, through a collaborative effort with ARB and a passion for serving an underrepresented market, Rugged Rocks has played a vital role in expanding the available part offerings.

The founder of Rugged Rocks reflects on this journey, stating, “Rugged Rocks has been a monumental supporter of Nissan 4×4’s over the last 17 years and I’m always looking for new products to collaborate on. I’m hoping this new frontier breaths new life into the Nissan 4×4 community.”

With the release of the 2020 and New Nissan Frontier Front ARB Locker, Rugged Rocks continues its commitment to the Nissan 4×4 community. While the future collaborations depend on Nissan’s forthcoming trail-friendly offerings and the market response, one thing is certain – Rugged Rocks will continue to serve as an advocate and innovator for Nissan 4×4 owners.

  A few lucky customers got their Atlas Adpaters in early January. One even raced in King of the Hammers! However, my supplier ran into an unexpected shortage of a single part of the kit.

Atlas-t, we can start filling orders again. If you do not have your atlas adapter order placed, please place your order online here:
Keep in mind that due to the increase in cost of these parts, there will be a price increase on this kit for new orders placed starting 7/1/23.

Battery Terminal Blocks – Keeping the machinist busy since 2020

Keeping the machinist busy since 2020! These versatile yet compact battery terminal blocks have been flying off the shelf for a few years and I recently got the last batch in that we will be able to offer at current pricing. As you likely know, the pandemic caused the cost of material to skyrocket. Meanwhile, we were able to secure material to stabilize the cost of various products such as these popular items. Unfortunately that stable material pricing has run out and we’ll be reassessing pricing in the very near future.
These have been used in various applications from off road to restorations.
Pick up a set for yourself before the price hike!
