For the serious 4x4 user, a bull-bar is more than just a protective device. It must also serve as a stable mount for a variety of ancillary equipment such as lighting and radio communications aerials. It also has to be tough enough to carry an electric recovery winch. Modern alloy bull-bars often take the form of a toughened replacement of the vehicle’s standard front bumper, providing the protection of a bull-bar while preserving the lines of the vehicle. At Ultimate 4WD, we can supply and fit bull-bars for every make of 4WD, and advise you on the right solution to your needs.
Don't just settle for the same old Bull. AFN approach things differently, taking into consideration the natural lines of the vehicle and giving the vehicle a look and feel that it so rightly deserves. Anyone can make a Bullbar but not many apply the design philosophy that AFN do. A well designed bar is a fine balance between strength, overhung weight and aesthetics and AFN put a lot of effort into getting this balance correct. Every AFN bullbar is tested to meet all ADR and Australian Standards requirements.
Uneek bull bars are designed by engineers who actually drive off road regularly. Uneek do not design our bars to look the same across the vehicle range, following a design style that has been used for decades like most of our competition. Nor do we copy other manufacturers. We fully develop our own product to individually suit that vehicle. We take time in designing from scratch and then test all our bars to comply with all relevant ADRs and Australian Standards.
