    I want a bull bar for parking in the city and running over/through trees, cars, pedestrians, hipster cyclists in skinny jeans, etc etc...

    I have searched for tube style bumpers and have given up... any bull bars that anyone has actually hit something with and said "wow, that thing worked"???:confused:

    oxymoron?... just seeing if anyone has had a collision or anything with the smaller westin or aires type bull bars... the $150-$350 range bull bars... not a bumper.
    I realize a bumper is stronger than a bull bar :)

    Most are hollow and very weak. Mainly for looks(unfortunately bad) and maybe mount some lights. I would think it will cause more front end damage in a wreck due to the added length. That was the first thing I got rid of when I bought my truck.

    Avid offroad bar is pretty strong. I havn't hit anything, but I think it would hold up just fine.

    Avid is the one i wanna get, but the westin was a gift from pops. Maybe just need to find a tree to run into.....
