1997 Ford explorer Bull Bars by Tuff Bars
1997 Ford explorer Bull Bar by Tuff Bars plays a vital role in the front of your vehicle. If you live in a country where collisions with wild animals are common, you will understand what they are used for. These guards are mounted straight onto the chassis of the vehicle, making it quite strong. They are either made of aluminum, steel or plastic. The main reason for fitting a bull bar to your Ford explorer is to protect it from collisions. When you are miles away from the nearest town and you hit a cow or sheep, you want to be able to get to the next town without waiting for another car to pick you up!
Engines in cars are designed with most of the fragile and vital components right at the front (radiator, fans and various other parts). What this means is that without a Tuff Bars bull bar these are the first things that get smashed. If you lose a radiator then you aren't going to be driving very far at all, which is why the bull bar is so handy. Some are designed to crumple and absorb the impact, whilst others are designed simply to stay solid. More modern vehicles crumple as less risk is on the passengers of the vehicle. Bull Bars are required to mount winches on your vehicle as well, which are important recovery items. A bar is also handy to mount spotlights on, radio antennas, fishing rod holders and to fit rated recovery points from. All in all, if you do much travelling then a Bull Bar is a good investment.
