There are two, no, three reasons why you need a set of bull bars on your four-wheel drive:
To protect your front-end and vital instruments from damage in the case of a head-on collision with another vehicle or wildlife.
To make your 4x4 look the business.
At Outdoria, you’ll find bull bars built to satisfy all three at once.
You might know this already, but in Australia, bull bars are often referred to as roo bars. And that’s because, as we mentioned, one of the main jobs for a set of bars is to protect your vehicle’s front end from collisions with wildlife and livestock that sometimes wander onto the road.
Collisions with kangaroos are incredibly common in Australia, especially in the outback. So if you’re touring, you need to make sure that your 4x4 is well equipped with vehicle protection at the front, sides, and rear as well.
Although a bull bar is great at protecting your vehicle from damage, there is evidence to suggest that – if installed incorrectly or poorly designed – they can drastically increase the chance of causing serious injury or even death if your vehicle happens to collide with an unprotected pedestrian or smaller vehicle.
That’s why it is so important that your new bars are fitted correctly and comply with the ADRs in your state or region.
Correct fitting means choosing the correct bull bar for your vehicle model. You’ll notice that manufacturers and dealers listing their products on Outdoria clearly state which vehicle model they are suitable for. This is to ensure that, once fitted, the bull bar conforms to the shape of the vehicle’s body. Whether your prized 4x4 is a Ford Ranger, a Holden Colorado, or a Nissan Patrol, you'll find a set of bars to match.
