Two of the most essential 4WD accessories that you can invest on are the bull bars and the grille guards. These do not merely add ruggedness to your vehicle but are also a sort of protection to your truck's front. Before investing in one, however, you should be familiar with the many different types that you can choose from. Here is a list and the detail for each type.
Full grille guards
Full grille guards are typically those guards that have a pair of centre uprights. These uprights easily mount to the truck's frame. It also features side brush guards that can cover your truck's headlights. Often favoured for their heavy-duty features, this type of grille guard is best if you want to provide your truck or SUV with the best when it comes to front-end protection and you are heading those nasty Australian trails. It adds a different touch to your truck too even when you simply find delight with taking trips around town. The brush guards curving around your headlights will also offer extra protection from any hazards on the front and side of your vehicle.
Centre grille guards
Centre grille guards are different from full grille guards since it has eliminated the wrap-around look that is associated with the full guard version. Despite missing on that aspect, centre grille guards are still very popular because they come with that tough centre design although missing on the side brush guards. You can also order this together with headlight guards depending on the style you want for your truck.
Bull bars with skid plates
Bull bars with skid plates are created out of the very tough steel metal material. Pieces of steel sheet metal are either welded or bolted together to form part of the bottom of the bull bar. These skid plates are usually removable too depending of course on how you want your truck to look. These plates, however, should be added to your bull bar so that your bumper will not be compromised in case there are debris and pebbles your truck will run into along the way. You can count on them to shield your truck from curbs, big rocks or even those tall parking barriers.
Rear guards for the bumper
Many times, you will end up protecting your truck on its front-end. However, if you want to give full protection to your vehicle, it will be best to consider adding a rear bumper guard on it instead. After all, you do not want replacing your bumpers all throughout in cases of those infamous accidents where some drivers will not care about hitting your truck's rear. Get that rugged protection from the most extreme impacts for your rear bumper.
