A.R.E.

Commercial work trucks are often in demand in inclement weather and at all hours of the night, making proper illumination a necessity. A.R.E Accessories offers an expanding palette of lighting options to light the interior and exterior of truck caps and tonneau covers.
     
To enhance A.R.E.’s Deluxe Commercial Unit, customers order in advance when specifying options on their truck cap so the LED lighting is installed at A.R.E.’s manufacturing facility. Then, when they pick up and have their DCU truck cap installed, the lighting is already set up and ready to plug and play, exactly as ordered.
     
A.R.E. can offer all options as a single purchase order, no matter how many different lighting options are needed. This streamlines transactions by greatly reducing paperwork while ensuring commercial users have the illumination necessary to conduct business effectively.
     
A.R.E.’s ultra-efficient LED options are rated for 100,000 hours, far outshining the 25,000-hour rating for incandescent lights. A.R.E. lighting options include:

Dome lights — LED brilliant dome lights are wired directly into the vehicle’s electrical system. Offered with an optional prop switch, LED dome lights conveniently turn on and off when the door is opened and closed, or can be controlled with a manual on/off switch.

Rope lighting — High-intensity LED rope lighting offers versatility in lighting the interior of a truck cap or toolbox. Opt for a single four-foot LED rope at the center of the cap or use two parallel ropes with one on either side of the inside roof. Or, place them inside above windows, inside toolboxes or to illuminate the entire chamber.

Rigid Industries LED Lighting — A.R.E. has teamed with Rigid Industries, to offer ultra-bright work lights. Known for durability and brightness, Rigid Industries’ products offer a lifetime warranty, unparalleled in the industry.  For nighttime work, choose 36-inch or 48-inch bar lighting, which can be positioned on the front of the cap to shine directly on the project at hand, or to light up an entire workspace.

Rear door lighting — This new fixture replaces the optional incandescent 12-volt light the industry has used for decades. Much brighter than its predecessor, the LED light is mounted inside the truck cap above the rear door, allowing closer detail work, such as paperwork, without the need to hold a flashlight.

Exterior lighting — A.R.E. offers LED lighting for up to 10 different locations on the rear quarters of the DCU, distributed based on the functionality required by the customer.
     
These various DCU lighting options are in addition to A.R.E.’s other leading edge innovations including the Slick Lock, roller rods, back-up camera, as well as keyless entry.
