A frontal protection range to suit the all-new D-Max X-terrain has been released by ECB

Included in the range from East Coast Bullbars (ECB) is an alloy bullbar which can accommodate a winch, or without, and a full range of Nudge Bars including ECB’s 76mm Nudge Bar, Series 2 Nudge Bar, and Type 8 Nudge Bar.
The unique front profile of the X-Terrain required a separate designed range of the Nudge bars and Bullbar to allow for the addition of the front parking sensor.
ECB says that thanks to its positioning as a leading Australian Bullbar manufacturer, its in-house R&D allows it to react quickly to updated design changes and upgrades in technology.
ECB alloy products for the X-Terrain come as an addition to a full range of frontal protection products to suit the D-Max SX, LS-M, and LS-U released by ECB in 2020.
All products are available in a variety of finishes, including ECB’s low maintenance powder coat finishes and signature mirror polished alloy finish.
Weight is the enemy of any vehicle. ECB explains that a heavy steel bulbar can weigh over double of that of an ECB alloy bullbar, even though an ECB Bulbar offers the same level of protection to the vehicle and its occupants.
In fact, ECB advises that adding an ECB alloy Big Tube Bar for the X-Terrain adds only 39kg to the vehicle.
ECB cautions that adding a steel bullbar usually means an upgrade of the suspension, with the subsequent increase in the mass of the vehicle having a detrimental effect on available load capacity, handling, braking, and fuel consumption.
Furthermore, it warns unnecessary weight over the front axle increases wear and tear on steering components and can also contribute to excess trye wear.
Frontal Protection Products to suit the entire range of D-max are available now for order.
ECB has been a manufacturer of alloy nudge bars and bullbars since 1971 and all of its products are manufactured in Australia to suit Australia’s harshest conditions.
It says its products provide premium strength compared to steel bullbars while being up to 50 percent lighter in weight.
Every East Coast Bullbar product is ADR compliant, airbag compatible, and covered by ECB’s exclusive lifetime warranty.
