    Choosing the right Off-Road Aftermarket Bumper

    When you're installing an aftermarket bumper on your off-roader, look isn’t the only thing that matters. Every bumper is built for a different requirement. Going just by the looks of it is a regrettable decision.

    Different types of aftermarket bumpers are designed to vary in looks as well as functionality. Before making a purchase, determine the functions you're looking for and if the one you're buying really serves its purpose.

    In a nutshell, off-road bumpers can be classified into following categories:

      Stinger bumpers are specially designed for steep terrains. It comprises of a protruding tubular stinger mounted on the main bumper body. Stinger bumper provides a leverage point when your truck is about to nosedive, preventing it from rolling-over on a steep slope. Stinger bumpers are mainly used on the front end of trucks or SUVs.

      Heavy-duty bumpers are mostly built for protection of front and rear end of full-sized pickups and SUVs. Made from heavy gauge steel, it further increases overall vehicular weight. A typical heavy-duty bumper wraps around to meet fenders and has ample room for heavy-duty winches to be mounted on the front.

      Tubular bumper is the lightweight version of heavy-duty bumpers. Thick steel tubes are arranged to create a barrier, spanning the width of front/rear end of the vehicle. Front ones are designed to accommodate a winch, giving your truck a more aggressive look.

      Pre-Runner bumpers are built for high performance. They’re made of lightweight tubular steel bars, arranged in a minimalistic design that extends around the front and rear end of your truck. The low-key design of Pre-Runner bumpers provides front and rear end protection with high ground clearance.

      Modular bumper is a heady mix of looks and performance. It can be customized by adding brush guards, push bars, skid plates, etc. while most of them can accommodate winches and off-road lights.
      They’re available in different lengths and can be accessorized as permitted by the individual manufacturer.

    Depending on preferred tire package and ground clearance, bumpers are of following types:

    1. • Full-Width Bumpers: They’re designed to accommodate stock sized or slightly larger tire packages and offer low ground clearance.
    2. • Mid-Width Bumpers: They’re suitable for slightly oversized tires and mid-range ground clearance. With Mid-Width Bumpers, you can get started with suspension modifications.
    3. • Stubby Bumpers: They’re the shortest set of bumpers. Stubby bumpers can accommodate insanely large tire packages, offering a greater ground clearance in the process. You can also add significant suspension upgrades with stubby bumpers in place.

    Benefits of an aftermarket bumper installation:

    1. • They can accommodate large off-road tire packages.
    2. • Direct bolt-on bumpers are easy to install.
    3. • Offers additional protection to front and rear end of vehicles, including grill and lights.
    4. • Complements the aggressive look of your truck.
    5. • Lightweight steel body is tough and durable, lasting for years on end.
