Tan Chong Ekspres Auto Servis Sdn Bhd (TCEAS) has made available the Ironman 4×4 accessories, at selected service centers, to Nissan Navara NP300 and Navara D40 owners who want to enhance their pickup trucks with rugged 4×4 accessories.
The Ironman 4×4 accessories are Australian designed and engineered by Jacob Spring Works, a Melbourne-based suspension parts manufacturer. Ironman accessories are used in recreational, fleet and mining vehicles in more than 160 countries. It is made available here via Rustcare Sdn Bhd, the exclusive distributor of Ironman accessories and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tan Chong Motor Holdings.
The accessories include parts like steel bull bars, side steps and rails, rear protection tow bar, winches, recovery points, LED light bars and spotlights, halogen spotlights and suspension kits. The accessories packages start from RM 5,160 for the Suspension Pack and moves up to RM 17,690 for the Challenger Pack Pro (prices quoted are for Pen. Malaysia).
The suspension kit offers improved coil springs and foam cell absorbers for enhanced ride comfort and driving performance. The bull bars, rear protection tow bars and side steps are designed to maximize clearance and made from powder-coated steel for extra protection and durability.
We tested the Malaysia-spec Nissan Navara NP300 and Navara D40 outfitted with the Ironman kit in a brief drive and both vehicles showed improved driving stability. It felt a little firmer than the stock suspension but was never uncomfortable and took well all speed bumps and potholes thrown at it. The up-rated springs and foam cell absorbers are also necessary to carry the additional weight of the 4×4 kit.
“We believe that expanding these accessories to TCEAS provides more reach to existing Navara customers in a versatile and forward-thinking approach. Whether it is for recreational or commercial use, we at Ironman 4×4 can safely say this is a world-class product. Getting the ride quality is the primary design goal for Ironman and it has definitely made the Navara ride and perform beautifully.” said Mr Nicholas Ling, Director of Rustcare Sdn Bhd.
To commemorate its introduction to the market, TCEAS will be offering special discounts on all Ironman 4×4 packages, inclusive of labor. The Ironman 4×4 accessories packages also come with a 0% Easy Credit Payment Plan at any of the TCEAS service centers.
Customers who purchase the Ironman suspension kit are covered by a 3-year/60,000 km warranty; other accessories are covered by a 1 year warranty.
