4 x 4 Australia - - 4 Cast -

AUS­TRALIAN off-road sus­pen­sion com­pany, EFS, has an­nounced the re­lease of a range of Ad­ven­ture barwork (bull­bars, rear bar, side rails, side­steps), snorkels, and an elec­tric winch for off-road ve­hi­cles.

This ex­pan­sion fol­lows on from nearly three years of de­vel­op­ment, re­search and no-holds-barred test­ing, thanks to the All 4 Ad­ven­ture team of Ja­son and Si­mon.

The Re­con winch, in par­tic­u­lar, is a stand­out, both in terms of in­dus­try-lead­ing 13,000lb ca­pac­ity (sin­gle-line pull), and how it sur­vived the rig­or­ous de­mands of the All 4 Ad­ven­ture team.

“Ja­son and Si­mon... they did the fi­nal test on the winch a few weeks back,” James Don, EFS Ac­ces­sory Mar­ket­ing Man­ager, said. “We knew if it comes back with fly­ing colours with them – and they are just bru­tal on gear – we’re on a win­ner.”

In fact, the gear’s per­for­mance (the duo also fit­ted their rigs with EFS Ad­ven­ture se­ries barwork, as well as the Re­con winch) went be­yond just ‘fly­ing colours’.

“We had no prob­lems,” James said of the winch test­ing. “With pre­vi­ous sup­pli­ers, they’ve had to re­place many winches – they didn’t have to re­place the Re­con at all, so that’s a re­ally good thing.”

Ini­tially, the barwork and winch will be avail­able for all pop­u­lar dual-cab utes and Toy­ota’s Land Cruiser 200 Se­ries. This first wave of prod­ucts will be fol­lowed by the re­lease of the EFS side rails, side steps and snorkel to­wards the end of this year. EFS plans to fur­ther ex­pand its ac­ces­sory range to cover other pop­u­lar 4x4s, such as the 150 Se­ries Prado, by the end of 2017.

Own­ers of older ve­hi­cles shouldn’t worry, ei­ther, with plans to cover su­per­seded mod­els al­ready in the works. “Once we get feed­back from our cus­tomers, we will start work­ing back­ward to­wards the ve­hi­cles that aren’t be­ing made any more,” James said.

With a decade of ex­pe­ri­ence in the Aus­tralian off-road scene, you can be con­fi­dent EFS will de­liver ex­cit­ing kit over the next few years. For more info, check
