As more customers take delivery of the highly-anticipated Ford Ranger ute, off-road accessory companies have been racing to roll out tough add-ons to compete against the factory-backed ARB accessories.
Australian company TJM has revealed its “fully-loaded” range of off-road accessories to suit the 2023 Ford Ranger ute, including the recommended retail prices.
The off-road company is offering a range of bull bars, side steps, rear bars, underbody protection, and canopies, as well as Airtec snorkels and XGS suspension kits.
Although the full range of accessories are now on TJM’s website, not all the accessories will be able to ordered straight away.
TJM says its range of underbody protection, the Airtec snorkels, and the XGS suspension kits are “coming soon”, with no exact timeline given.
The company says to reach out to “your local TJM expert today” to get the most up-to-date information and to get your new Ranger booked in.
TJM says all its new-generation Ranger accessories have been put through “rigorous, class-leading testing to ensure they are incredibly capable in extreme Australian conditions”.
As previously reported, Ford’s partnership with ARB sees it offer a range of factory-backed accessories for the new Ranger under its Ford Licensed Accessories Program.
These ARB-branded accessories are covered by the same five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty as the ute itself, provided they’re purchased and fitted through Ford dealerships.
TJM accessories aren’t covered under this same agreement with Ford.

In terms of rival brands, Ironman 4×4 recently teased its upcoming range of off-road accessories for the new-generation Ranger.
According to teaser images on its social media, Ironman 4×4 is going to offer two different bull bars, as well as a steel rear bar too.
All of the major off-road accessory companies, including TJM, Ironman 4×4 and ARB, also have stalls at the National 4×4 Outdoors Show, which is happening this weekend at the Melbourne Showgrounds.
ARB in particular is showing off its range of accessories for the Everest SUV which is yet to reach Australian customers.
As noted above, first deliveries of the Ford Ranger have already started, with deliveries of the baja-ready Ranger Raptor set to commence this month, and the Everest SUV following in September.
The company had taken about 17,000 new Ranger orders as of two months ago and, while it hasn’t provided an updated figure today, it’s clear the order intake and wait list has grown even greater.
