The big old landy or patrol with the bfo bull bar and side rails should always go 1st down an unknown track, that way he can push the fallen timber out of the way :brow:

Can't say my bullbar has ever helped the car.. I have come close to hitting roos, and it's snagged a few times entering creeks and swamps, not to mention how often it hit on the comp track at loveday. But really without it I don't think the front of my car would of touched anything.
So far it's just been showy and something to hold my lights.
It is a good "just in case" device, like lukes 80kph into the roo, imagine how easy it would of been to write it off without protection.
Like they say, always use protection.

If your planning on doing much camping in bush type situations a bull bar of some sort is worth while insurance.
I had only had mine on for like a week when i first broke it. (So glad it was there)

Mine hides my winch, and lets me drive at dangerous speeds at night :eek:

Also good for mounting big driving lights (I need some, to help me drive even faster at night) and CB aerials!

throw the aerials off your spare wheel mount at the back, then when you take the top of your 4runner to go shooting your mates wont hit them with the shotty :thumbup:

Well after lots of playing this arvo i finnaly scraped the bullbar on the way into a hole, not that it stopped me though. the idea of cutting the bottom off is in the pipe line but i would want to make it look neat. still not sure if its worth while
