Factory front and rear bumpers don’t usually offer the best protection your truck or Jeep needs for off-roading, heavy-duty use or the unpleasant run-in with a deer. Not to mention, it can be hard to install a winch or any LED lights on a factory bumper. The solution? Upgrade that factory bumper with an aftermarket bumper.
AFTERMARKET BUMPER PROS
Aftermarket bumpers can take heavy impacts much better than factory bumpers can. Bumping into a fence post, pushing another vehicle, or even striking an animal on the highway will have much less measurable impact on your bumper.
Aftermarket bumpers come with pre-cut holes to allow for additional accessories like winches and lights. This is a big improvement compared to factory bumpers, which usually don't offer easy mounting options for other aftermarket accessories.
In addition to being tougher and easier to mount accessories to, aftermarket bumpers are an upgrade from the stock bumper in appearance and style. Bumpers give trucks, Jeeps and SUVs a rugged look, and most bumpers are available in powder-coated or chrome finish.
