Bull bars are deemed to be one of the most popular exterior accessories for trucks and SUVs. You do not necessarily have to be a fan of off-road trips to benefit from front end protection, provided by bull bars and grille guards. Based on the research, conducted by one reputable American car magazine, over 40% of the truck and SUV owners installed their bull bars and grille guards because of the look they provide, and less, than 30% installed them for protection.
Indeed, bull bars make the trucks look more rugged and aggressive. As for protection, bull bars protect the front end of the vehicles against chips and dings caused in minor collisions.
Bull Bar: Easy Installation
It’s fair to say, that aftermarket bull bars can be easily considered an accessory, not an exterior part, as they are just bolt on to your truck. 99% of bull bars available on the American aftermarket feature easy installation that does not require trimming, cutting, drilling, etc.
However, there is still small amount of vehicles that do not allow installing a bull bar without installation holes drilling. Bull bar installation pretty much depends on the year, make and model of the vehicle, as well as on the bull bar specs. But in general, the installation process is pretty much the same for all vehicles.
- Locate the pre-drilled hole in the bottom part of the vehicle’s front fascia.
- Install mounting brackets and bolt them to the vehicle without tightening the nuts.
- Pre-fit the bull bar and attach it to the brackets.
- Align the bull bar and tighten the bolts.
