Truck Bumpers, Not Only For Safety

Bumpers mounted on the front of trucks were originally used to help prevent damage to the truck if a collision occurs. It is designed to protect not only the driver but the hood, engine, grille, as well as safety equipment such as headlights.

Truck bumpers originally were made of steel that could be painted to match the vehicle. As time went on and the design of the trucks evolved so did the bumper. As chrome plated parts became more popular on vehicles Semi truck companies such as Mack, Peterbilt, Freightliner and Kenworth added chrome plated steel bumpers to their trucks. The truck drivers loved it. Truck drivers all across the American roads were now adding and designing their own chrome bumpers for their rigs. Adding a personal touch to their truck.

Semi-truck chrome bumpers are available in many sizes and configurations. From stock 16” size up to 24” Texas square styles. Drivers can add cutouts to add chicken lights into the bumper and light up the American Highway.

Semi-truck bumpers have changes again. now also available in polished stainless steel, fiberglass and plastic. But the uniqueness of the American truck driver never changed. They still replace or customize their truck bumper whenever possible.
