THE IMPORTANCE OF AN AFTERMARKET BUMPER

THE IMPORTANCE OF AN AFTERMARKET BUMPER

Steel off-road bumpers increase your vehicle’s approach and departure angles and help protect your vehicle’s vital engine components from damage in the event of an animal strike or other unforeseen obstacles. They also provide secure mounting points for accessories like LED lights. 

 

Your sprinter van is most likely one of the larger investments you will make. In order to help protect that investment it is important to take steps to help increase the longevity and value of your Van. A rigid steel bumper is a relatively cheap investment that has the potential to help you save from larger repair costs if you happen to get into some type of front end collision. Bumpers range anywhere from $200 - $2,500. The price usually lends to the overall size of frame, amount of steel used & different type of accessory attachments.

Another key benefit to an aftermarket bumper is the ability to add additional lights to you vehicle. Most aftermarket bumpers have multiple mounting points allowing you to add more exterior lighting for your van. Some bumpers allow you to configure over 200+ different combinations of lights.

 

The van life may take you to some very remote areas, it's important to be equipped and ready to tackle the unknown elements. Being able to see your surrounding elements is at the top of the list, and is why we recommend looking into upgrading your vehicles bumper.
