Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com and this is my review of the Barricade Three-Inch Bull Bar with Skid Plate fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. There is a version of this available for the 2007 to 2009 and the 2010 to 2016 Wrangler, so make sure you get the one that fits your Jeep. These are also available in the Gloss Black Powder Coat Finish that you see here and a Textured Black Powder Coat Finish, so you can pick the one that best matches your Wrangler. This Bull Bar is for those of you who don't have a need for or aren't ready for an aftermarket front bumper, but who want to change up the look of the front of their Jeep. This will add a little bit of function in the way of some light mount tabs but other than that it is more of a styling mod than anything else. The skid plate that is included will lose some light brush out of the way but it's not designed for hardcore trail use. And this will decrease your approach angle, so if you're somebody who goes off road a lot, I don't think this is the item for you. However, as far as the Bull Bar goes, this is well built and reasonably priced. This Bull Bar is build from three-inch Round Steel Tubing and the skid plate is right around an eighth of an inch thick, so again, it's not going to hold up against heavy duty trail abuse. The Bull Bar is covered in a black powder coat that is your choice of either a gloss finish that you see here or a textured finish. I really like the textured finish because I think it matches the black plastic on a factory JK really well. The light mount tabs that are on the Bull Bar are a really nice feature. They add a spot to mount some additional auxiliary lighting. While this Bull Bar is designed to be completely bolt-on if you have a factory front bumper on your Jeep, if you decide to install it with an aftermarket front bumper, there may be some cutting or modifications necessary. So installing this Bull Bar on your Jeep if you have a factory front bumper is completely bolt-on, however you will have to do a little bit of trimming of the splash shield if you want to reinstall that after the Bull Bar is in place. The first step in the installation is to attach the included brackets to the frame and then bolt the Bull Bar to those new brackets. Everything that you need is included in the kit and the whole installation shouldn't take you more than two hours using traditional hand tools and sockets. This Bull Bar is priced exactly where I think it should be for the quality of the product and for the look it provides. As we said before, it's not really functional so I personally wouldn't spend a ton of money on it. But if you're somebody who likes the look, I think this is priced really reasonably. So if you're not ready for or don't have the need for a full aftermarket front bumper but you want to change up the look of the front of your Jeep, this is a really nice option. It's well-built, the finish looks good and the installation couldn't be easier. So that's my review of the Barricade Three-Inch Bull Bar with Skid Plate fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Extra Off-Road Protection. The Barricade Off-Road 3" Bull Bar with Skid Plate provides dependable front- end and under-engine protection from brush and road hazards, even on the toughest trails.

Heavy Duty Construction. Manufactured from 3" diameter steel tubing with a heavy-duty skid plate this Barricade Off-Road Bull Bar is completed in a gloss black powder coat finish for aggressive good looks and long lasting corrosion resistance.

Easy, Bolt-on Installation. The Barricade Off-Road Front Tubular Bull Bar is engineered to be a direct bolt-on upgrade using just basic hand tools, so there is no drilling or cutting required for a clean straight forward installation.

Application. This Barricade Off-Road 3" Bull Bar with Skid Plate is specifically designed for use on 2007-2009 Jeep Wrangler JK models.

      will this not fit on a 2008? is there a way to modify it to fit because i saw there are two of these. one fit 07-09 and one 10-17. i’m about to buy a used one on Facebook for $40 but it came off a 2012.

      • Due to design changes from 2009 to 2010, these are not going to fit all JK models, and are year-specific.

          Review from Barricade 3 in. Bull Bar w/ Skid Plate - Textured Black (10-18 Jeep Wrangler JK)

          Sharp Looking Bull Bar

          Great Bull Bar for someone looking to dress up their Jeep but not necessarily looking to rock crawl. Well made. Directions in the box are not very thorough. Directions on the web site are much easier to follow, but still don’t explain which bolts to use where. Other than that, the final product looks great. Took me two hours to install on my own due to a lot of trial and error with the bolts, but it was recommended and would be easier with two people installing.

          Super easy install

          It took me longer to figure out the instructions than it did to install. Utilized a couple youtube videos as the instructions that come with the product are terrible. Once I had it figured out it took me less than 20 minutes to install.

          Review from Barricade 3 in. Bull Bar w/ Skid Plate - Textured Black (10-18 Jeep Wrangler JK)

          Affordable Option to Make Your Jeep Look Tough

          I wanted to find something to make the front of my Jeep look a little more rugged without having shell out for a full on front bumper/winch. While that'll eventually come, I came across this bull bar and couldn't be happier! It was actually very easy to install and I was about to hoist everything in place by myself (using some muscle). The only difficulty was in cutting and aligning the air dam to fit to the new hardware. A skillsaw some patience will do the trick, but eventually it fits in place. Everyone that sees my Jeep loves the look and says it gives off a secret service / military vibe.

          Front bumper

          Does NOT mount very easily on the 75th anniversary edition bumper. The small brackets hit the bottom of the bumper and won't line up. Had to modify them.

          Bull Bar w/ Skid Plate

          It seems to be of good quality. A couple of the bolts could be a little longer. Need to supply lock nuts. These can be purchased at your local hardware for a few bucks. I installed it by myself in under a few hours. Looks awesome! Looks great with factory bumper. Replace the splash shield after installation is a bit tricky.

          It took a little work to get it on, but it looked great during before I upgraded my entire bumper. Sturdy piece, but sucky instructions.

          Love it!

          I’m not overly handy with tools so I was a little worried about installation. It was actually pretty easy. I do recommend two people for the job though. Trimming the plastic shield was the hardest part but using a dremel and box cutter, we were able to do a pretty good job. Love the look of the finished product!

          Nice product great price

          Somewhat easy to install and a nice product. Looks great and satisfied with the quality and instructions for install. Cutting the plastic splash guard was the most time consuming part of the install. I would suggest including a pre cut splash guard with the Bull Bar and add it to the cost. It can't be a very expensive as it is just plastic and would save the time of cutting the existing guard.

          Barricade 3” Bull Bar

          Easy to install. Definitely need an extra set of hands to help hold everything. Only complaint was the shorter bolts for the mounting brackets weren’t long enough to use the lock washers, and the pictured instructions could be clearer with multiple angles.

          3in Bull Bar for JK Wrangler

          Purchased this textured Bull Bar for a 15 JK Wrangler. Didnt want full front bar just something to protect and mount 2 lights. Product arrived as promised. Quality was a great surprise. Powder coat finish has full coverage and even texture. Support brackets and hardware all rugged also. Unfortunately need warmer weather to install

          Nice Addition!

          Got it on sale for $100 and free shipping. Arrived quickly. Installed easily; however, instructions suck. I mounted two cheapie fog lights ($20 from Harbor Freight) and painted them to match bull bar. For less than $130, I toughened up look and have mounting spot for lights, fishing poles and who knows what. (I live near beach, so clearance or “approach” IS NOT a concern.
