BULL BAR HAS A STAINLESS SKID PLATE. SAFARI DOESN'T. sorry bout caps.

safari is sold in 2 individual pieces- the bar and the mount kit. don't get fooled by the safari price. the mount will add another $50 to it.

bull is sold as aa complete unit.

The bullbar looks better/more agressive imo.

not that it really matters, but the Safari bar was available for our model year Rangers before the Bull bar was.... if i had waited a couple of months, i could have gotten the Bull bar, but didn't know it, and bought a Safari bar.

i'd get the bull bar for your truck, i think they look better.

Safari bar has 2" piping, while the bull bar has 2.5". I found a safari bar on eBay for about $120 shipped, brackets and all when I got mine.

If you go offroad a lot either will effect your approach angle..more so with the bullbar.

As far as looks go, they both come in black or chrome and the bull bar has a nice skid plate looking piece to it, as fas as practicality goes, both of them are good for holding auxiliary lights and that's it. They don't protect anything in a front end accident. I've killed 2 safari bars.
