Bull Bars Add Protection and Looks To Any Ride

Bull Bars Add Protection and Looks To Any Ride

I remember when I first fell in love with Bull Bars. I was watching my favorite movie at the time, Jurassic Park, when an SUV that looked even cooler than the Velociraptors appeared on the screen. With a custom red, green and yellow paint job, crème leather interior, heavy-duty winches and bright yellow alloy wheels, the Ford Explorers from Jurassic Park were the wildest SUVs I had ever seen. These were the trucks that first got my interested in off-road machines (after all, they could handle a T-Rex attack…sort of).

With a fully decked out machine, the stars from Jurassic Park had the sweetest Explorer ever, but the most menacing modification on the SUV had to be the Bull Bars. Similarly to some of the current Aries Bull Bars, the bars on the Explorer offered protection to the lower bumper as well as the upper grill of the vehicle. Additionally, it could handle the weight of two large fog lights and left room for a powerful winch system.

Offering Protection From More Than Dinosaurs

On modern trucks, Jeeps and SUVs there are layers of plastics on the undercarriage that can be easily damaged. Plus, there are important components like AC condensers, radiators and fans that can be easily damaged by obstacles on rougher terrain.

According to off-roading experts, the advantages of installing a set of Bull Bars can dramatically decrease the chances of smashing a vital part on your vehicle. Because of Bull Bars’ heavy-duty steel, there is really nothing that can stop your adventure when you’re bouncing across a trail.

Additionally, many truck owners have been installing Bull Bars in inner cities to protect their vehicles from dings and dents. How many times have you seen someone parallel parking their car only to give a few “love taps” to the vehicle behind them. A set of Bull Bars will literally pay for themselves if they save you from one dent.

Hundreds of Options for Bull Bars

Originally, Bull Bars were designed to be purely functional, but today they can be accessories that add to the style and attitude of your vehicle. Whether you’re looking for a modest, simple rack or a custom bar with wild shapes and bright chrome, there is no end to the possibilities of adding a tough new look to the front of your vehicle.

Today, there are literally hundreds of different Bull Bars available on the aftermarket for different makes and models of trucks. However, it’s important to invest in a quality set of Bull Bars from trusted companies to ensure safety and proper fitment. Below are a handful of our favorite models from this season’s catalogue:

Aries Big Horn: The Big Horn is no joke. These 4 inch Bull Bars go perfectly with trucks that have a larger wheel set and lifted suspension, because everything about these bars is massive. From wide tubing to mirror polished steel and a brushed skid plates, these Bull Bars are not for the faint of heart. Mix in their auxillary light mounts and this could be the perfect set of Bull Bars.

Back Bumper Guards:When most people think of Bull Bars, they only picture the front of an automobile, but now there is an easy way to protect your butt. Factory Outlets has just released an easy to install black bumper guard that can protect the rear bumper of your rig from scratches or impacts. These tough bumper guards are made from heavy-duty stainless steel and come with powdercoated mounting brackets to give a sexy look to the rear of your vehicle.

Black Venom Bars: A few years ago, Spyder Industries started introducing wild designs for all of their products. These bars are no exception. A wild protruding shape gives added protection for off-roaders looking for style and versatility from their Bull Bars. A solid-steel construction and diamond cut design gives these bars an edge over the competition. Enthusiasts should note: these are the heaviest bars we carry, so if you’re looking for a lightweight option, this is not it.

As you can probably tell, you don’t need to be in Jurassic Park to appreciate the versatility and style of a quality set of Bull Bars. The addition of modern Bull Bars brings a tough look to the modern bumpers on today’s automobiles. So, if you plan on doing any serious off-roading or if you just want to protect your bumpers from other drivers, consider installing a set of Bull Bars.
