Alternatively known by a colourful selection of names, including road-kill inspired monikers like the Canadian deer bar, or the Australian roo bar; as well as action-verb-driven titles like push bar or ram bar, bull bars provide protection for your truck’s front end in the event of a collision. Like tonneau covers and mud flaps, bull bars are a practical truck accessory that also provides a great opportunity to stylize your ride.
Before shopping in this category, look into your local traffic laws to see if there’s any legislation related to installations like these. Some locations, including Australia, have implemented bans, noting that while these units can improve a driver’s safety, they can also present increased dangers for other vehicles or pedestrians in the event of a crash.
A few things to think about while perusing this category:
Is that model compatible with your ride? While all the options included in these rankings are designed to fit Chevrolet Silverado trucks, it’s strongly recommended that you consult with the company prior to purchase to verify that the product is a match with your year and model.
What’s it made of? Steel offerings seem to dominate this category, likely due to their low cost and high strength rating. Lightweight aluminum options aren’t as tough but they’re rustproof, and modern composite selections (although pricey) allow some give while still protecting your truck.
Is that LED bar street legal? Supplementary fog lighting is a great extra incorporated with many of these options, but make sure that the option’s rated lumen output doesn’t exceed the parameters of your local traffic bylaws.
