Piranha Off Road have introduced two very clever new products that while not earth shattering are certainly exciting in the 4WD and Caravan electrical fields. Anderson plugs have been around for years and have captured the market for reliable plug-in products such as caravan and camper trailer connections, solar panel connections and more in a simple and easy way. The normal Anderson plug is rated at 50amps and utilises terminals to cater for10mm gauge wire for maximum power delivery. The down side to a standard Anderson plug is that it’s hard to crimp properly when smaller gauge wire is used. Piranha has new Anderson plug terminals that allow for the use of 5mm and 6mm wire securely and have the standard size lug to fit all 50amp Anderson plugs. It’s a small thing, how- ever it offers flexibility for tradies and the home handyman to safely use Anderson plugs in all manner of jobs where thinner gauge wire is used. The terminals are sold separately for $5.00 each or you can by an Anderson plug for $12.95 including a choice of terminals. Midi Fuse Kit The second electronic gadget is the Piranha Midi Fuse mounting kit specifically designed with bolts, nuts and fuse to suit the Original Equipment (OE) fuse box on the Toyota 79 Series, HiLux and Fortuner 2015 models onward. This clever kit allows the owner to add an additional fuse into the system to power a fused connection to run pretty much anything. It will work with a variety of fuses from 30amps to 100amps. This unit caters for higher capacity products up to 50amps, compressors from 20 or 40amp, battery to battery up to 100amp and even DC to DC products from 40 to 80amp. This mounting kit sits neatly in the original fuse box without any additional modifications and is ideal for the pedantic and fussy vehicle owner avoiding the need to have a messy separate fuse box in the engine bay. The Midi fuse mounting kit retails for just $25.00.

Seventy years ago Arthur Warn started Warn Industries with a set of locking hubs for surplus WWII Jeeps. Over the next seven decades, the company would pioneer the electric winch, supply automakers with OE parts, create the powersports winch market, and design a host of innovative state-of-the-art products that let 4WD and powersports enthusiasts “go prepared”. That’s cause for celebration. ARB 4×4 Accessories partnered with Warn Industries in the early 1980’s as an official Australian distributor of WARN winches. With WARN’s long history in 4×4 accessories and ARB’s vast network and experience in Australian distribution, the partnership was an obvious choice. To celebrate the milestone anniversary, WARN has created a special limited- edition winch based on the iconic “upright” WARN winch design. The unique product will feature upgraded performance, Spydura synthetic rope, distinctive styling and commemorative 70th Anniversary badging. Warn Industries will release more details about the M8274-70 and how you can win one in the coming months. Supporting their anniversary, ARB is giving away a variety of 70th anniver- sary apparel to customers throughout the coming months. Hoodies, caps and t-shirts are all up for grabs so follow @ARB4x4 on Instagram and Facebook for your chance to win.

Warn Industries celebrates 70th anniversary OBITUARY Andrew John Rodrick 7 January 1962 - 25 July 2018 It is with heavy hearts that we advise the passing of one of our most respected members of the Nissan 4x4 Club of Victoria. Andrew was an active member and was well known for organising and running some of our club events and trips. This included photo competitions and displays at 4WD shows. His passion for photogra- phy and the outdoors gave him many opportunities to meet like-minded people, his camp fire banter and dis- cussions will be sadly missed. Nissan 4x4 Club Victoria.
