Share Article

Aries Offroad new winch carrier system that works with the Ramsey, Mile Marker and Waren light to medium winches includes a bull guard light bar combo and is light and revolutionary in concept and the design was made for the Toyota FJ Crusier.

With the popularity of the Toyota FJ Crusier Aries Off-road will introduce, at the 2006 Sema Show, their new winch carrier system that has been designed specifically for the FJ Crusier.

Jeff Perez, President of Aries Offroad, stated it is such a revolutionary concept due to its simplicity and ease of install. Also, it is much lighter and less bulky than those full replacement steel winch bumpers; "it's even a better winch system than I envisioned".

Aries engineering and design team worked overtime with the FJ Crusier and the results are truly special. Not only does the system except the Ramsey, Mile Marker and warn light to medium winches, it also acts as a functional light bar. It includes a removable 2" stainless sport bar that can hold up to two 8" diameter lights. The winch system is a major departure from many winch manufacturers and front end replacement suppliers that are selling winch systems adapted from other platforms," further stated Jeff Perez.

Aries has created a huge buzz with companies worldwide, and has many appointments set for their new product lines at the Sema Show. Based on the information that was released to Toyota, and its dealer network, the majority of these are about the new Retriever Sport winch system and Cargo Management system which was designed with the FJ Crusier in mind. Both lines are now being engineered for the Hummer H3 and other vehicles including the 2007 Jeep Wrangler.

The Aries design team was brought together by Jeff Perez some 7 months ago and each member of the team was given a card that on the front had Toyota FJ Crusier winch system written down.

On the back of the card there were four goals.

1.Design the best winch system we can that fits the design and lines of the FJ

2.Make the winch carrier system functional that works with more than one winch

3.Design the winch system so no major structure is compromised or heavy modification is required to the FJ Cruiser

4.Design an affordable winch system without compromising quality

The design team came up with a surprise for Jeff when they not only hit all four items with this revolutionary design but gave him a built in combo bully and light bar which adds to the esthetics of the winch carrier.

Jeff further stated that the production team also has done an outstanding job not only with prototyping but the finial production units. They are truly spectacular because they look, function, beyond our expectations.

The Retriever Sport will be unveiled at the 2006 Sema Show in Las Vegas at booth #31357, for the auto industry to view. Further information will be provided at the Show.
