ARB Sahara Bar
Sharing many of the strength related features of a deluxe bull bar, including ARB’s five fold upswept and tapered wing profile, the Sahara bar offers a different look without sacrificing practicality.
Like the deluxe bull bar, the Sahara bar also provides a solid platform for adding other accessories such as winches, driving lights and CB antennas.
Available either with or without the polished centre tube (on most newer models), the Sahara bar offers owners greater flexibility in creating their desired look.
High Lift Jacking Points
Eliminating the need for a mounting bracket, High-Lift jacking points are integrated into the design of most ARB bull bars. These points also enable easier access to the clutch lever when unspooling wire or synthetic rope before winching.
Recessed Fog Lights
Most Sahara bars feature indicators and optional fog lights for foul weather conditions. The recessed panels give both indicators and fog lights improved protection from branches and road debris.
The mounting system is a vital part of any ARB bull bar design. ARB’s mounting systems are specifically engineered to spread impact and winching loads evenly over the vehicle’s chassis. This ensures the bull bar functions properly in extreme conditions.
Secure Mounting Points
Exceptionally durable and secure, all ARB bars serve as an ideal platform to mount driving lights, helping ensure maximum performance and longevity. Driving lights mounted to a high quality bull bar prevents problems such as excessive movement, a vibrating beam pattern, premature bulb failure and eventual fatiguing of the light bodies. Provisions for CB aerials are incorporated either into the wings or on the centre pan of the bar. Durable plugs are included for added aesthetics when aerials are not fitted.
Centre Tube (optional)
An optional polished or painted centre tube offers a different look to the more traditional bull bar design. An internal mandrel bender is used to shape the centre tube, ensuring even wall thickness throughout.
Split Pan Design
ARB’s engineers give careful consideration to maintaining sufficient airflow to the vehicle’s radiator. Utilising a split pan system, ARB’s bull bar design ensures the radiator receives a massive amount of airflow and actually further increases the strength of the bar.

Electric Winch Provision
Mounting a winch to a vehicle requires a properly supported structure that is designed to accommodate the stresses of winching. When using a snatch block to increase winching capacity, the forces are multiplied to several times the rated capacity of the winch. Most ARB bars feature the option of fitting a winch, and all are designed and tested to endure and exceed such loads.
The furthest most point from the chassis and often the point of impact in an animal strike, the wing area is by far the most vulnerable. ARB pioneered the multi fold upswept and tapered wing design, which provides an enormous amount of strength and maintains an optimum approach angle.
Air Bag Compatible
With an air bag equiped vehicle, it is essential that the vehicle’s crush rate and air bag triggering is not altered when a bull bar is installed. 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 achieves maximum possible vehicle and passenger protection without affecting the crash pulse.
