Available in steel and alloy, the bull bars are designed with 'crush cans' that deform upon impact. A calculated and controlled response to the deformation then triggers airbag sensors to activate airbag deployment at exactly the right moment.
Safety and durability testing techniques - including graphic computer simulation, strain gauging and off-roading in Australian conditions - helped Toyota engineers achieve optimum strength-to-weight ratio for the bull bar. This resulted in a bull bar that is strong, yet light, and is fully integrated into the vehicle structure and design.
The bull bars integrate perfectly with LandCruiser 70 Series; for example, specially designed vents allow sufficient air-flow into the grille to accommodate engine cooling.
Airbag-compatible side rails are available for the steel bull bar, providing greater vehicle body protection, and further enhancing occupant safety.
Both steel and alloy bull bars are winch, antennae and driving light compatible.
