DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT:
Very modern in styling yet distinctively ARB in heritage, this new Modular Bull Bar is truly innovative and utilizes a new modular design.
Three distinct configurations are available, allowing for customization to meet individual needs or preferences. Many considerations were included in the research and development process, but first and foremost the bar needed to retain the ARB core principles of quality, reliability and practicality. This new style of Modular Bull Bar is a direct response to the research and collaboration performed by ARB’s expert engineers. The result is a Modular Bull Bar that provides features for any Super Duty, no matter if it is a dedicated hunting rig that takes off for the back country, a fleet truck, or a daily driver that must be ready for any adventure.
The tough and rugged apperance of the Ford Super Duty, with its large front fascia, made the styling of these Modular Bull Bar kits a unique challenge. This new design features a large split center pan, formed wings, and a center upright assembly specifically designed to match and carry the truck’s styling. Each of the integrated features were also designed from the ground up as exemplified by the all new Integrit™ textured black powder coat, the unique press formed fog light housings, and the ability to mount a variety of winches (up to a Warn 16.5ti) within the bumper.
PROTECTION & STYLING CHARACTERISTICS:
MODULAR DESIGN & KIT INFORMATION
By utilizing an innovative design, 3 distinct style options are available for the 2011+ Ford Super Duty F-250/350 platforms. Each kit represents a unique and distinctive style. With the wide range of demands put upon these trucks, no single Bull Bar style was going to work for every situation. Thus, ARB is proud to introduce an innovative solution through the use of modular customization. Each kit represents a traditional ARB Bull Bar style that has been created to specifically relate and tie into the Super Duty’s design.
KIT 2236010 - FULL DELUXE STYLE BULL BAR (TYPE A)
Includes the full width lower bumper replacement, center upright hoop, and outer frames. This kit provides the highest level of protection for the truck and occupants.
KIT 2236020 - SAHARA STYLE BULL BAR (TYPE B):
This kit adds a center upright hoop to the full width bumper. This hoop provides additional protection around the truck’s grille and critical components.
KIT 2236030 - BASE STYLE BULL BAR (TYPE C):
This kit is a full width bumper replacement, without any uprights or outer frames. This kit provides a center pan and two outer wing sections, giving the truck an extremely robust winch platform and important impact protection.
SAFETY & PROTECTION:
The flexibility of a modular design allows customers to choose among three configuration options to meet their individual needs, each of which is competitively priced. This system also allows vehicle owners to modify or upgrade the configuration, as their protection needs change.
While the bolt-on modular center upright hoop and wing system is a new direction for ARB, the engineering and development team conducted Finite Elemental Analysis (FEA) testing alongside extensive real world assessments to confirm that the system exceeds the demands that full-size truck owners’ demand of their vehicles. This system saves weight and allows for customizable protection levels while providing the strength and protection that ARB Bull Bars are known for.
With an air bag equipped vehicle it is essential that the vehicle’s crush rate and air bag triggering is not altered when a Bull Bar is installed. To ensure compatibility, ARB assesses each vehicle’s frontal crush characteristics and replicates the crush rate into the design of each air bag compatible Bull Bar and its mounting system. This method enables engineers to achieve maximum possible vehicle and passenger protection without affecting the crash pulse. ARB has heavily invested in vehicle crash barrier tests to validate the performance and compliance of its air bag compatible bull bars, and as a consequence, our bars offer a far greater level of protection than most standard brush guards and grille guards.
This center pan design features a unique reinforced and gusseted design to match the size of the vehilce and the large frame
winch fitment options.
