    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    What's going on, guys? I'm Alex from 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

    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. This Bull Bar is perfect for F-150's that pull double duty both on and off the road. The Barricade's thick steel tubing handles trail debris, bangs and bumps confidently, and will look good doing it. Two center light mounts allow for round auxiliary lighting to provide extra protection and confident at night.

    Quality Construction. Manufactured from heavy duty 3.5 in. stainless steel tubing for superior strength, this Barricade Off-Road F-150 bull bar is ready for any tough trail or worksite. Its polished to a bright mirror finish for impressive looks and long-lasting corrosion resistance, making this a perfect bull bar for all-weather conditions or off-road adventures.

    Easy, Bolt-on Installation. Barricade's 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 Barricade Off-Road 3.5 in. Bull Bar is specifically designed for use on the 2004 to 2020 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.

        My 2015 F-150 Lariat has the front camera. Will this bull bar get in the field of view?

        • Unfortunately, the Barricade 3.5 in. Bull Bar - Polished Stainless (04-16 All, Excluding Raptor) will block the front camera. The Bull Bar ends right under the Ford emblem, thus block the view.

        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!

            Looks good, decent protection.

            Purchased this back in the beginning of August. Install was quick and easy. Hit 2 deer at the end of august and it slightly dented the main upright tube. Got the truck stuck 3 weeks ago and had to hook a strap to the bar (I know it's not recommended, but I needed out asap) the mounting brackets snapped off, BUT I was able to get the truck out in the process. Will likely purchase another one to replace the one that broke.

            Open box deal

            Product was purchased as an open box deal at a hugely discounted price. It definitely was a deal because I had to Fab up one of the main mounting brackets and supply my own hardware. But for the price I am very happy with the deal I got and will be looking dor more "open box" deals. Thanks AT!

            5 2011 Harley-Davidson Edition - KennethK Installation Time: Afternoon

            Best Bar for the Buck$$$$

            LOVE the extra 1/2 inch thickness this bar boasts looking more beefier than the others and how sturdy it feels after bolting it up to your bumper. My Harley Davidson Edition offered a more challenging install than other F150’s in that it didn’t come with tow hooks or the cut out for them in the bumper cover. Thank goodness the bumper itself did and after studying the whole set up all I needed to do was break out the Dremel, measure, and cut out the area on the bumper cover to access the frame to bolt up the bull bar. It’s fairly simple and it came out looking factory, after cleaning up the cuts it truly looks AMAZING with the Barricade 20” led light bar on it too! Sooo if you have a F150 model that has the premium front bumper on it without the tow hooks don’t be afraid to make the move and install one because it wasn’t that hard and it looks AWESOME! Well worth it I PROMISE

            Looks GRRRReat

            Not as easy if on an F150 4x4 Removal of tow hooks a bit tricky Unless you want to take whole front off. Theres 2 clips on inside of a rubber 'flange' around tow hook that can be removed then bend back to access front bolt Low air dam must be removed. However, if you roto-zip a slot for the bar, it can be replaced

            Worth Every Penny

            I was on the fence about getting one of these for a while - glad I finally pulled the trigger on it. Shipped very quickly and packaged/protected well. Installed by myself and took about an hour and a half. I'm impressed with the build quality for the price. Came with all the required hardware, plenty of spare nuts/washers/etc., and a set of instructions. I recommend watching AmericanTrucks' install video while putting it on. All in all I'm very happy - it adds that "missing touch" that I needed on the front of the truck.

            Check a few good Youtube videos before you tackle your tow hook boots. lol You can actually get 'em off without cutting if you get the back flaps out and pull...hard. On the upside, installing the bull bar was a piece of cake. "Less than an hour" is really more like slightly over an hour. Turns a pretty F150 face into a genuine beauty.

            Awesome Bull Bar

            The bull bar absolutely added some muscle to my 2014 F150. It's aesthetically pleasing and it's as strong as a Bull. The black finish compliments my tuxedo black exterior, and I feel a lot more secure about protecting my Proven Ground Raptor style grille as well as the weak OEM bumper. I also added a 22" light bar that truly makes the Bull Bar an outstanding mod. It was a good purchase for it's price and quality. It's well built, and not that difficult to install. Overall it was a great investment for all of its intended purposes. I would by it again, and if you're thinking about buying one, I strongly advise you to go ahead because you will not be disappointed.

            Great Price

            Great product. I used Barricade products on my Jeep and loved them. So I decided to purchase this Bull Bar for my F-150 (2019 STX 4X4 w/tow hooks). The most time consuming part of the whole installation was removing the covers around the tow hook and the hook itself. It’s best to cut the cover around the tow hooks off, and then the bolts where easy to get to. Take the front hook out and loosen the back one, then you can push the hook out the back. After that it bolts up pretty easily.

            Perfect touch!

            The bar was absolutely the perfect touch for a more aggressive looking truck! The bar and brackets are stupid simple to assemble, but my truck doesnt have factory tow hooks. So you have to remove the plastic valence (which is a pain). I used a dremel with a pvc blade to cut holes for the brackets. So if your truck is like mine, have some tools and an extra set of hands ready. All that aside though, it hasnt even left the driveway yet and is racking in the questions amd comments! Awesome way to make your truck make a statement!

            Nice Bar

            Installed this on my 2015 F150, pretty easy install, just cut the ruybber away from the tow hooks that were already there. I wanted a bar that wasn't perfectly tubular and this was exactly what i wanted. It did come with a missing rubber plug but American Trucks sent me the missing part right away. I will do business with them again! I also installed the licence plate re-locator with this and it worked perfectly even though there is no confirmation. I pulled a center screw from the skid plate and put the rel-locator bracket there, then put the screw back in to attach skid plate and re-locator bracket.
