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.
