Bull Bars: An Investment For Your Investment

Taking your vehicle off the road and into the vast Australian outback can be an exciting experience. However, it should come as no surprise that not every vehicle, even if 4x4 is equipped to handle the tough outback driving conditions. You'll come across more roos that you think you will, and some of them will attempt to run at you to say hi and bump into you. Now if you haven't been hit by a roo, you should know that it's like getting hit by a bike. Roos are tough animals, and they can do a lot of damage to your vehicle and leave you stranded. However, they're just one of the many things that are out to get you, which is why you need to protect your vehicle as best as you can. This is especially true for protecting your vehicle's front-end, as that's where most of the important parts are stored.

The best way to protect your vehicle's front end is by getting a bull bar. Bull bars are highly functional vehicle accessories which protect vital vehicle components and can act as a mounting platform for a wide range of accessories, such as antennas, light bars, winches, and driving lights. Most bull bars are made for a specific model and make of vehicle to ensure a proper fit. You'll come across Holden, Ford, Nissan, Mitsubishi and Toyota bull bars made of different types of materials and designs, so you have plenty of models to choose from to fit your specific needs.

The most durable bull bars are made of steel. However, not all steel bars are manufactured equally. Some feature a better design with more folds, which adds more strength to the overall construction, and some are made from higher-grade steel than others. Basically, you get what you pay for. Alloy bars aren't as strong as steel bars, but they are lighter, which allows for better handling. Additionally, alloy bars have better corrosion resistance properties and are typically more aesthetically appealing. 

In terms of design, you want a bull bar that's going to accommodate your driving habits. For instance, if you're riding in areas where the odds of a roo getting at you are high, you want a bar that offers as much protection as possible, including bonnet protection, cooling system, headlight and under vehicle protection. If you're going to be driving through rocky terrain, a bar that features outer tubes compatible with side steps and rails should be your priority. Bottom line is, whether you have a Ford, Holden, or Toyota bull bars make for one of the most valuable accessories you'll come across that's definitely worth investing in to protect your grand investment.
