Our Passion

Rugged Brake Systems is here!

The Idea for Rugged Brakes came around one afternoon where a friend asked us "how can I make this thing pull up?" He was driving a 2017 Navara towing a huge 3500kg caravan"

We realized at that point there was no real solution to making 4x4's stop properly

Plenty of people have spent loads of money modifying their fourby's but the Brakes were overlooked, and by the simple fact there was no real solution out there. We, at Rugged, want to bring the BEST solution to market and our aim is to provide outstanding service to the 4x4 community. We're passionate fourby enthusiasts and understand the real demands of the Aussie 4x4!
