If you’ve ever played sports of any kind, the concept of a bull bar should be pretty familiar to you. Whether you’ve stared into the eyes of a 350-pound defensive tackle (before he laid you out flat) or just took a knee in the “soft” spot after trying to front the post, you can appreciate the necessity of some extra padding and protection when it comes to your personal safety.
Your rig is no different. The grille on your front end is deceptively fragile. All it takes is an oversize boulder, robust tree branch or a little fender bender to punch straight through, and you’re looking at some pretty serious repair costs.
Protecting Your Vehicle with Bull Bars
But, with Ford Explorer bull bars, the Toyota bull bar, bull bars by Romik and Westin grill guards, you can protect those vulnerable front end components from damage while adding a tough-looking, off-road appearance to your vehicle.
Also known as bumper guards and grille guards, the Toyota Tundra bull bar, Toyota Tacoma brush guard, Dodge Ram bull bar and similar bull bars for trucks are constructed from three-inch stainless-steel tubing and sealed against the elements with a durable powder coating or polished finish. Each is crafted by time-trusted manufacturers for your specific make, model and year, and typically feature a solid one-piece construction for extreme, long-lasting durability that stands up to just about anything the road (or off-road) can throw your way.
Off-Road Protection without Limiting Your Truck
Protecting your undercarriage as well as your grille, skid plates offer the same basic functionality as standard bull bars for trucks but include the added feature of a stainless steel grille that shields the underside of your bumper from the damage often sustained by climbing over a creek bed…or freeway median. Skid plates are polished to a mirror shine and are virtually impervious to rust, delivering reliable all-weather protection for years.
Plus, many bull bars for trucks and skid plates come with pre-drilled holes for mounting fog lights or other aftermarket add-ons like a towing winch—ideal for those looking for some added safety and functionality without having to extensively modify their rig just to get it.
What's the Best Bull Bar for You?
Best of all, bull bars and skid plates bolt directly onto the frame of your vehicle with almost no effort required and absolutely no drilling for most vehicles. Each kit comes complete with all the necessary installation hardware and step-by-step instructions, enabling you to mount them just about anywhere your truck is parked!
Bull bars and skid plates make the ideal upgrades for Dodge trucks. Also serving as must-have upgrades for Toyota off-road drivers, they safeguard your front end, protecting your engine while keeping your grille pristine.
