Custom Truck Bullbars South Africa - Manufacturing & Accessory Guide

Bullbars protect the engine and front of your truck from excessive damage. You can fit the bars with additional accessories like floodlights or winches for added functionality. Truck bullbars can be custom made by bullbar manufacturers in South Africa to suit your needs.

It is important to note that bull bars can improve or hurt aerodynamics. Choose a truck bullbar manufacturer that understands that better aerodynamics means less fuel consumption. This is important to keep in mind if you are in the South African transport industry.


Bullbars bumpers are an essential safety feature for trucks in South Africa. They serve two main purposes:

  • Shield the vehicle from damage caused by collisions. When we consider the road conditions in certain parts of our country, this becomes critical. 
  • Protection in the event of a rollover or accident – the bullbar is designed to absorb some of the impact on your engine. This means that in the case of a very serious accident, there may be less damage to more expensive parts of the truck. Bear this in mind, it is important that your bull bar is fitted properly and securely by professionals.
  • Improved Aerodynamics has the added benefit of improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.

Features & Truck Accessories

Bull bars come in various shapes, sizes, and materials depending on the truck they will be mounted on. Additional features can improve the overall functionality of your trucks.

Flood Lights

Most bullbars in South Africa now include lights for extra safety on the road at night – floodlights, additional headlamps, and fog lamps are popular. This improves both your own visibility and visibility to other drivers on the road.


Truck winch bumpers serve as an additional safety feature, particularly in the event of a rollover or accident. The bullbar winch mount can be used to drag the vehicle out of harm’s way. 

This is particularly important if you are stuck or have no hard surfaces nearby where it would be possible to jack up your truck and carry out repairs. 

Best Materials

Materials used in the manufacture of bullbars will greatly affect its efficacy. That’s why we only use Stainless steel.

Stainless Steel Bullbars

Undoubtedly the most popular material for bullbars. Durable and strong, these bull bars resist corrosion and will last a lot longer than other materials such as aluminium or alloy.

Black Powder Coat Finish

One of the most durable finishes for bull bars. Easily applied to stainless steel, it produces a smooth, even finish which is easy to clean and maintain. There is also the added benefit of rust protection.


Any brand can be fitted with a bullbar for added protection. Aero Truck has experience in a variety of brands and can assist you as your truck bullbar manufacturer in South Africa.
