No, the bullbar has nothing to do with bulls, and it is not just a cool accessory. Of course, it makes your 4WD look tougher, but it can also protect you from all kinds of hazards on the road, make winch mounting easy and allow for recovery points. We give you six most important reasons for investing in bullbars, roo bars or nudge bars.

1 – Safety

Drivers love using bullbars Perth wide primarily because they help you stay safe on the road. They are protecting vehicles against accidents such as car crashes or animal collisions. It is hard to imagine driving through the outback or bush areas without any protection! Going off-road exposes you to many hazards such as hitting a fallen tree or a large rock. When made from sturdy materials, a bullbar can withstand the damaging effects of different materials and protect your vehicle from damage. Nudge bars are great for safe driving in urban areas because they can protect your from minor accidents, and they provide a great mounting place for additional driving lights.

2 – Animal Collisions

Roo bars Perth locals prefer using typically feature sturdy bumpers and extra headlights to ensure safe driving day and night on both city and country roads. If you are frequently driving through rural areas in WA, you already know how much damage can cause a collision with a kangaroo. A bar is handy because it will reduce the initial impact when you unexpectedly hit a roo or any other animal. Ideally, this accident won’t even happen, but if it does, this is the best protection you can have. To minimize the chances of an animal collision, avoid driving in rural areas around sunset and sunrise.

3 – Winch Mounting Point

There are other ways to mount a winch, but it is so much easier to mount onto a bulbar. Even if you don’t want to buy a winch, it is still a good idea to purchase a bar that is winch-capable. You might need it later, or you might want to resell the vehicle in the future.

4 – Accessory Mounting Point

Your bulbar is also useful for mounting other accessories. If you often drive through sand dunes or hilly terrain, you’ll need a safety flag and a flagpole. You can also mount fishing rod holders, additional driving lights, UHF antennas and other outback essentials.  

5 – Recovery Points

Another great way a bullbar can improve your safety is a possibility to mount recovery points. When you head off-road, there is always a chance to get stuck, which means that you need a solid attachment point to perform vehicle recoveries. Many bullbars already come with in-built recovery points, while others allow you to add them.

6 – Protecting Your Front Undercarriage

The undercarriage is very susceptible to damage when you are off-roading in Western Australia as the terrain can be extremely challenging and unforgiving. Volkswagen Amarok is a popular choice because it features strong protection panels under the vehicle. To make sure you have the best possible protection, consider purchasing an amarok bulbar uniquely designed for this stunning 4WD.
