The 4 Best Bull Bars For Your Triton

Can you imagine taking your Mitsubishi Triton 4x4 ute to the bush without having a bull bar to protect yourself and your vehicle from any collision with wild animals?

I guess we have the same answer at the back of our minds and that’s a big NO. I’d rather be sure and equip my truck with a bull bar to protect myself as a driver and also my loved ones onboard from any unexpected collisions. In this article, we will talk about how important it is to have a bull bar on our 4x4 truck.

Before we dig deeper on what are the advantages of having bull bars on our Mitsubishi Triton, let’s move backward a little bit and have a glimpse of history as to why bull bars had been discovered and existed until this present time. In that way, we’ll be able to understand why using bull bars on our 4x4 truck is not just beneficial to our vehicle but also to us, our protection as a whole.


History of Bullbars:

Did you know that ‘Bull Bars’ were first used in Australia? Yes, you read it just right. They were first used in Australia to protect the vehicle or truck from any damages caused by collision from wild animals such as kangaroos, cattle, etc. The ‘Bull’ in the name refers to cattle that may roam around onto rural roads and highways unexpectedly.


While others are using bull bars to protect themselves from any serious damages if there’s a collision on the road, a bullbar can also protect the vehicle's radiator, grille, and front bumper that can drain your bank if these parts of the vehicle get damaged.

A few years back, only wild rangers and other individuals who are researching the wild are the only few people who were using Bull Bars or what they so-called “extra protection” on their vehicle. Today, the situation has drastically changed and we can see bull bars on police or patrol cars who are doing pursuits and also with some enthusiasts who are doing adventures in the wild.

Many individuals are using Bull Bars in this fast-changing world we are living in because they met their needs and specifications. Now, let’s move forward and tackle some important matters that will benefit us a lot in a long run.


Did you know what is the simplest difference between a Winch Bar and a Bull Bar?

A winch bar is appropriate and compatible if your truck only roams around in rural areas where having a collision with wild animals or with another truck is very rare. Not only that, the winch bar offers you the option to mount accessories. Most of the time, Winch Bars will only offer protection to the radiator, grille, and surrounding areas of your vehicle but not entirely.

Take note: a Winch Bar only offers minimal protection from impact. On the other hand, a Bull Bar offers maximum protection from any impact you will encounter. It is a shock-absorbent that can help you stay away from any serious injuries and damages to your vehicle when there is a collision with wild animals and another truck.

Oftentimes, a Winch Bar is constructed from aluminum tubing and some of the areas are also made of polycarbonate. Engineers and manufacturers today are still working on an option for how to design the Winch Bar that can match the level of protection of what Bull Bar offers to the public. The Winch Bar can usually be seen fitted to small SUVs and sedans. As you noticed, these types of vehicles are being used in rural areas only.

But a Bull Bar is different as it offers a higher level of protection. It’s like hitting two birds in one stone. It protects the vehicle from any serious damages and absorbs the shock from the collision to protect the driver and the other occupants.


How would I know if a Winch Bar or Bull Bar is right for me?

Well, the choice of getting a Winch Bar or Bull Bar can be determined and examined where and when you tend to drive. It all boils down to your needs. If having the Winch Bar is beneficial to you, then go for it. If not, go the other way around. We must keep in mind that Winch Bars and Bullbars can increase fuel consumption at some point. Both of them are constructed with durable yet lightweight materials so you can expect an additional weight.

At this point, since we already know a little bit of the history of a bullbar, the difference between Winch and Bull Bar, let’s get down to the main point of this article which is to know the best 4 Bull Bars of your Mitsubishi Triton. Mitsubishi Triton is a compact pick-up truck produced by Mitsubishi motors and can be used as a patrol car, wild ranger’s car, or even for personal use whether it’s for leisure or business.
