5 Reasons Why You Need a Bull Bar

When they’re looking for bull bars Perth motorists often ask us about the main reasons why they actually need one. Of course, a Pajero bulbar or suchlike looks great and adds an extra dimension to your vehicle. However, there is so much more to a bullbar than its aesthetics. So, let’s take a look and find out 5 reasons why you need a bull bar installed on your 4X4.

Animal strikes

Let’s face it, living in Western Australia, your chances of an animal collision are pretty high. With our wildlife roaming the roads an impact can seriously disable your car. You could end up stranded with a huge repair bill to pay or even worse. Bars are available for so many vehicles, so it pays to get one for your car if you can. For example, a Ford Ranger bull bar can protect the front of your vehicle so you can keep on driving with minimal damage if any. Of course, you don’t want to crash into anything, but in case you do, you need a bullbar.

Protection

If you own a big vehicle such as a Toyota Hilux, you’ll need a Hilux bull bar for driving off-road. Even when you’re driving a robust car or 4X4, rough roads and terrain can wreck your ride. To prevent sticks, rocks and other debris from ruining your vehicle, it’s crucial for you to have a bull bar fitted.

Accessory mount point

If you’re into driving in the desert, then you can mount a sand flag on your accessory mount point on your bullbar. Without a bar, it can be very difficult to create a mount that is strong enough to withstand serious vehicle use. You also need to think about installing driving lights, UHF antennas and so on.

Winch mounting point

You don’t necessarily need a bullbar to mount a winch but it’s easier to do with one. Also, if you’re buying a bar and don’t necessarily want a winch, think about spending a little more for a winch-capable bar in case. It’ll help when the time comes to sell your car.

Improving your approach angle

Improving your approach angle is always a good idea so your vehicle remains in great condition. You can better deal with a bit of damage to your bar rather than to your vehicle.

Buying the right bullbar offers you added peace of mind when you’re out on the road. For more information, get in touch today!
