Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

What's going on, guys? I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com and this is my quick review and install of the Barricade 3.5" Bull Bar, available in polished and black fitting the 2004 through 2016 F-150. So in this video I'm gonna talk about the construction and materials of this bar, as well as hitting on the installation later, which right off the bat, I'm gonna be giving a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and you should have this one your truck in about one to two hours tops. Now, if you're the owner of a '04 through 2016 F-150 and you're looking to protect your front end, make your truck not look like your neighbor's, as well as adding a little bit of aggression, this is definitely gonna be the bar that I would suggest checking out. Now, another great aspect about this piece is that you're gonna have a couple areas right up here that either fits some 3" auxiliary lighting or a 22.5" light bar right up front. So in terms of the construction, these bull bars, both the polished and black powder coated versions are gonna be comprised of very heavy duty 3.5" diameter stainless steel, so you can rest easy knowing that you're gonna be protecting your truck from anything you may come across, be it on your daily commute, job site, or doing some light off-roading. I will add that if you're gonna be doing some heavy-duty trail running, I might suggest taking a look at a full-face brush guard just to insure that you're gonna be protecting the front end of your truck. Now, in regards to the finish on both of these bull bars available in polished and black, I can personally attest to them holding up over time. In regards to the elements, any type of corrosion, you need not worry, as I've had this on my truck for about a year now. Now, last but not least, another great aspect about this bull bar is, again, you can add 3" pods right up front or a 22.5" light bar like I've done on my own personal vehicle. Now, taking a look at the price here, guys, we're gonna see this bull bar fall in line right around the $200 price range, which in my opinion, you're getting a huge bang for the buck based on the materials used here, knowing that you're gonna be protecting your investment, as well as having the ability to add any type of auxiliary lighting like I had said previously up front. So in my opinion, guys, you're definitely getting away with a huge bang for the buck here not only based on the fact that you're gonna have heavy duty 3.5" diameter stainless steel tubing, but also for the fact that weighing this in comparison to alternatives out there, we're gonna see them tip the scales at easily north of $500 and even getting up to as high as about $2,000 based on the brand as well as the materials used. So just like I had said at the beginning of the video, guys, this is going to be a very easy installation and you're gonna be looking at about one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and about one to two hours to get this on your truck. Now, another great aspect about this bar, in my opinion, is that no cutting, modification, or welding is gonna be required, so you can rest easy knowing that down the road, if you're gonna be looking to upgrade to a full-face brush guard, this can pull off and you can install the other one with no issues. So like I had said, because there's no cutting or modification required, this can be installed with simple hand tools like a basic socket set. Now, while it's not required to have two people there, it'll definitely make the installation process a little bit easier on yourself so it might be a good idea just to have a second set of hands around. All right, guys, just to wrap things up here, I really like this option from Barricade not only based on the fact that I have one of these on my own personal truck, but for the fact that you're gonna be protecting your investment with some heavy duty 3.5" diameter stainless steel tubing, not looking like every other F-150 around town, as well as having the ability to add 3" auxiliary lighting pods or a 22.5" light bar up front. So that's my review and install for the Barricade 3.5" Bull Bar fitting your '04 through 2016 F-150 right here at americanmuscle.com.

Extra Protection. A Barricade Off-Road 3.5 in. Bull Bar provides dependable front-end and under-carriage protection from all types of trail and road hazards - prefect for F-150's that pull double duty both on and off the road.

Quality Construction. Manufactured from heavy duty 3.5 in. stainless steel tubing for superior strength, this Barricade Off-Road F-150 bull bar is completed in a durable black painted finish for impressive good looks and long lasting corrosion resistance.

Easy, Bolt-on Installation. Barricades F-150 Bull Bars are engineered to be a direct bolt-on upgrade using just basic hand tools, so there is no drilling required for a clean straight forward installation. All hardware for installation is included making this an easy job for anyone to complete. F-150s that are not equipped with tow hooks will require some cutting to the factory plastic lower bumper cover.

Application. This Black Barricade Off-Road 3.5 in. Bull Bar is specifically designed for use on the 2004 to 2018 F-150s, including the FX2, FX4, Harley Davidson, King Ranch, Lariat, Limited, Platinum, STX, XL and XLT models. Does not fit SVT Raptor models.

Technical Note. The Bull Bar may interfere with the function of the front parking sensor and forward facing camera, if equipped. Also the Bull Bar will partially block airflow to the intercooler on EcoBoost models.

Will the 20inch light bar you guys install in the lower bumper work on this bull bar?

  • Hey Ksp, The 20" light bar should work with this bull bar, also if you take a look at some of the customer submitted photos there is a photo with that 20" light bar install on the lower bumper with this bull bar. So you should be all set!

I Want to install kc lights can you tell me what size i need?

mannyr

  • We would recommend a 4" or 5" Round lamp, however custom brackets may be required to mount these. The mounting locations on the Barricade 3.5 in. Bull Bar work best with Cube lights, or a light bar.

    Barricade Bull Bar

    The fit, look and appearance is exactly as shown so I'm fully pleased with that. Price is even great compared to others of similar appearance. The only downfall is that there is only two small bolts on each side that actually holds the bar to the frame mounting bracket. If the bar itself was welded to the intermediate mounting bracket it would be sufficiently strong enough to take an impact but with only the two little bolts on each side holding it to the mounting bracket I could easily see it breaking at first impact.

    Quality Budget Bull Bar

    The price tag made me a little nervous that the quality of this bull bar would be sub par. I was wrong. This is a sturdy piece that installed very easily and looks good. Time will tell how the finish holds up, but as of now, its a good looking addition to the truck, provides a mounting place for a future light bar, and helps separate this truck from every other on the road.

    Was on back order when I ordered it, was 6-8 weeks out and received it in about 2 weeks! Install was very simple in driveway by myself. Looks great on the truck, overall very happy with it! The bad - I did notice a small dent/ding on the top of the bull bar, which is the only reason for 4 stars and not 5.

    Review from Barricade 3.5 in. Bull Bar - Polished Stainless (04-18 All, Excluding Raptor)

    Not A Bolt-On

    This is a beautiful piece of equipment that was delivered quickly. All pieces were included. Unfortunately this is not a bolt on Bull Bar. I started installation at home and quickly realized that even with tools I was in over me head. Ended up taking the bar and my truck to a shop where they had to remove the whole front bumper to install the bar without having to cut anything. It is a good value, but is not a bolt in.

    Nice addition to the factory bumper

    If you live in a state where a front license place is required, you'll need to pick up a relocation bracket to lift the plate above the bottom of the bull bar. I'd recommend doing this at the time you buy the bull bar and installing the license plate bracket onto the bull bar first

    Mean Looking

    I took 3 hours to put it on myself. Just put a blanket down with tools and instruction on top. Take parts out box and match up with instruction sheet. With a six pack in fridge, music on just take your time don't tighten bolts until you get everything lined up. I used my knees to prop it up while I tightened it underneath. Truck is red with black step sides and mud flaps. Now with this Bull Bar it makes Mean Looking!!! Thanks Big Time!
