Bull bars are made of steel or aluminum tubing, and are welded together in such a way as to give them the greatest possible strength. More and more, modern bull bars are being manufactured with a strong type of plastic, which allows them to have the same strength without the need for welding. Some bull bars will also have a number of accessories, like the “brush bars” which will protect headlights and other areas from small trees and other things. A bull bar can even allow you to mount lights and other accessories, so they are a very useful accessory to have!

The importance of a bull bar depends on the type of trips you often take. Cattle and other large animals can appear from nowhere, and the amount of damage they can do to your vehicle is incredible. Even worse, an accident with the animal can hurt you and your passengers if it is able to flip up over your hood and into the windscreen. The number of these accidents is high, so there is a range of different bull bars for your vehicle.

When you put a bull bar on your vehicle, it is for safety and protection reasons, so you need to be aware of what can go wrong. Because a bull bar sits outside the vehicle, it is exposed to the weather every day and this means it is susceptible to rust. Not only does rust look bad, but it can seriously weaken the overall structure of the bull bar and becomes a serious problem if you are involved in an accident. Some bull bars are also designed to “snap” back in the event of an accident, and the hinges can become worn over time and cause a failure.

To determine whether your bull bar is in its best condition, you need to visually check it whenever you are maintaining your vehicle. Checking any hinges for movement will allow you to be confident that they will not cause you problems, and you should be able to see whether there is any rust on any part of the bull bar. The only other way to become aware of a problem with your bull bar is if you have an accident, and by then it is too late to do anything about it.
