Local-based Company helps save lives!

Local-based company, TUFF Bullbars Australia is proud to be able to offer products to the market that help save lives.

Recently, TUFF has been contacted by a Father, who wanted to share his son’s story.

“My son was travelling down the Stuart Hwy (near Coober Pedy), around 30kms south of Maria SA, when a strong gust if wind made the vehicle go onto the gravel shoulder,” the Father said.

“Its seems like he has over corrected the vehicle when trying to come back on the road, which has caused the vehicle to roll onto the drivers side, then went end over end before coming to a stop.”

“The bar is hardly touched and the rest of the vehicle was destroyed.”

“We thought we would share with you these photos to show how the TUFF Bullbar and side rails saved my sons life.”

“Thanks guys from the bottom of my heart. Your products saved my sons life!” the Father concluded.

This is one of many testimonials TUFF Bullbars Australia has received on their products saving lives.

TUFF Bullbars Australia knows how vitally important bullbars are to Australia vehicles and understands that their clients are looking for a bullbar that offers them the maximum amount of protection whilst traveling.

Managing Director Anton Griffiths said, “He is honoured that TUFF products save lives.”

“With Christmas just around the corner it’s even more important to be protected!” Anton concluded.

TUFF Bullbars is the leading all-Australia manufacturer of frontal vehicle protection systems and enjoys being a nationally recognised and well respected brand in the aftermarket accessories industry. 


The fourth generation RAV4 has fallen into the arms of an eager market and TUFF Bullbars Australia has been enthusiastically designing a new TUFFBar range to protect this smart new SUV.

Fun to drive and packed full of extra features, Toyota has delivered a punchy yet practical SUV…….just look at the diesel model!!

TUFF Bullbars Australia has responded to the market, preparing a range of modernised TUFFbars to care for your vehicle and those inside it.

Anton Griffiths, Managing Director of TUFF Bullbars Australia is excited about the possibilities that may come from having a specifically designed bar for the new RAV4.

 “I am very proud that we are the first in the market to offer this top quality range of protection for the new RAV4,” he said.

TUFF’s specially designed bullbar mounts are independently tested, and are fitted to the rugged bumper section, providing a solid foundation for this air bag compliant frontal protection.

Meeting all Australian Design Rules, TUFF Bullbars will not affect your new car warranty. Insurers even know that there are fewer claims involving protected vehicles.

TUFF alloy bull bars utilise only high grade materials of heavier gauge than competition products. The extruded bumper section alone, boasts an impressive 8mm wall thickness!

The alloy advantage is in a high strength-to-weight ratio greater than that of other metals resulting in a very strong product that doesn’t add too much weight to your vehicle.

Called the “TUFF Aerostyle,” these photos show our highly polished option. For your comfort and safety, the inner bar surface is strategically coated with non-reflective matt paint. Our powder coated colours are also a popular option for those who like a long lasting durable finish that is practically maintenance free.

The ‘TUFF Aerostyle’ bar is ideal for those who want style and safety for those trips outside the city into areas requiring good protection from animal strikes.

BUT it doesn’t stop there, TUFF Bullbars Australia has also designed the 2 and 3 Post options for Toyota’s new RAV4, taming the rugged outback with the post style that TUFF is most famous for!

Anton Griffiths and the TUFF Team were delighted to deliver the first RAV4 TUFFbar to a local dealership, last week, and with the positive feedback received we are sure that we are onto another winner!!

Bullbars will NOT be banned!

The TUFF Team are very pleased to advise that the Federal Government has withdrawn its plan to ban bullbars (see media release below). We would like to thank all of our customers and supporters for the feedback and support that they have given- essentially the backlash from the concerned public (individuals & stakeholders) has resulted in common sense prevailing.
