Bull bars don’t only make your 4×4 look great but there are many other reasons for you to need a bull bar. Don’t be fooled of the name, it has nothing to do with bulls! Let’s see the reasons why you need a bull bar for your 4×4!
For collisions of animals
A collision from an animal can do a lot of harm to your vehicle, especially if it is a strong animal such as a kangaroo, the impact can disable or even destroy your vehicle, making you stranded or with some major damage. A bull bar will protect the front of your vehicle, hence when you collide with a large animal you will have a chance to keep driving. Many reports are there mentioning they have hit animals even at a speed of hundred kilo meters per hour , but vehicles with bars and definitely the vehicles with a broken light in the vehicle was alright! Anyway trust us, you don’t want to collide with anything, but unfortunately if you do you will need a bull bar! Also remember to travel not at dawn or dusk to minimise the opportunities you get to collide with any animal and call for a quote on bull bars repairs today!
For protection: generally
Even though there is a term as driving off road, no driving is done off road. What people refer to off roading is driving on rough roads. These roads have sticks, rocks and ruts. The problem is that they get entangled or caught up and be jammed into various places. There is a tendency for the vehicle to be turned over when this happens and the damage can even cost your life. It will be end of the vehicle and even the end of the journey. The steel and the alloy is very hard to be pierced than plastic, hence having bull bars can actually save your life.
For angle improvement
It is well to improve the approach angle because then you will not touch the terrain in hard going and even if you do, you won’t be damaging a bar as much as it does for the original plastic. Bars just scuff but plastic? They break!
For potential for recovery points
The age of vehicles that contain simple chassis are long gone, but still recovery loads are on the rise. But some bull bars contain recovery points that are built in, but there are others that help to expose the chassis so points can actually be added. All the same without having a bar it will be hard to fit recovery points.
Just ignore the prices and get yourself a bull bar because it protects you from animal collision, gives you general protection and gives approaches for angle Improvement and potential for recovery points.
