The harsh conditions of the Australian Outback are extremely demanding, and standard brush guards and grille guards simply aren't strong enough to survive. For this reason, ARB pioneered the bull bar, designed specifically for maximum strength and reliability, to last in these tough conditions. And after years spent modifying and refining this design, the ARB bull bar is the most highly regarded 4x4 frontal protection system in the world.
Unlike most brush guards and grille guards, ARB bull bars incorporate a fully engineered mounting system which completely replaces the standard bumper. During the design process, careful consideration of numerous factors ensures it will properly serve its purpose.
ARB manufactures winch compatible bull bars and Sahara bars for most 4WDs - they provide the quality protection you expect, without compromising design and aesthetics.
With an air bag equipped 4x4 it is essential that the vehicle's crush rate and air bag triggering is not altered when a bull bar is installed. To ensure compatibility, ARB assesses each vehicle's frontal crush characteristics and replicates the crush rate into the design of each air bag compatible bull bar and its mounting system. This method enables engineers to achieve maximum possible vehicle and passenger protection without affecting the crash pulse. ARB has invested heavily in vehicle crash barrier tests to validate the performance and compliance of its air bag compatible bull bars, and as a consequence, our bars offer a far greater level of protection than most standard brush guards and grille guards.
Please note that a few of the bumpers for older model vehicles are not air-bag compatible, refer to the Vehicle Application Guide for confirmation.
The origins of ARB can be traced back to Australia’s remote Top End, circa 1975. A region of vast distances and rugged terrain, it was fast becoming a Mecca for the nation's burgeoning 4WD community. However, the very environment that attracted 4 wheelers also wreaked havoc on their equipment – when driving in extreme conditions, only the best 4x4 accessories will do. Today, ARB is Australia’s largest manufacturer and distributor of 4x4 accessories. They also have an international presence, with an office in the US and an export network that extends through more than 80 countries around the globe. ARB' philosophy, however, has never wavered from its original course – quality, reliability and practicality above all else.
