ARB Hummer H3

The Aussie team at ARB 4×4 Accessories recently announced their plans to go global with their HUMMER product, and this week introduced the ARB Edition H3 at the 2008 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

The customized solar flare HUMMER H3 my look familiar to you, since it’s the same vehicle that was used for Chris Collard’s two-month off-road trek across Africa this year. Some of the less obvious highlights of the vehicle are ARB’s Air Locking Differential and hi-output compressor with tire inflation kit. The H3 also has an ARB FreezerFridge to keep your safari beverages cool.

“We were hugely excited to work with this highly customizable vehicle.” says ARB USA President, Jim Jackson, “We’ve accessorized the H3 to be expedition ready and have completed long range product testing in both Africa and Australia, in some of the harshest conditions on earth, and were thrilled with the results. We hope H3 enthusiasts will love our new line of products for this vehicle.”

Release after the jump.
