What are your opinions on my bull bar?

What are your opinions on my bull bar?

Postby Rocco1005 [OP] » Apr 07 2021, 11:50pm

I have had this bull bar on for a while but started realizing how nice the z71 front grille area looks and can't decide wether or not to keep it. I don't off-road so it's really just for looks and maybe a deer. Keep it or not?

I'd ditch it personally. I've seen bull bars and other brush guard type bumpers end up doing more damaged upon impact than if nothing was there. Usually they push back and whack the hood or punch into the grill.

I have to say that is the only bull bar I have ever seen that actually looks good.

That's one of the better looking bars I've seen... but I'd also ditch it.

Looks kinda cool from that front view, would need a side view to really tell. Typically I think they look terrible though. They also really aren't useful for deflecting or stopping any damage, and could actually cause more damage from impacting something.

Lose it....And while you're at it, lose the Raptor lights.

You could try selling it to Terry, but rumor has it he's cheap unless there's food involved....LOL!!!
