You have a couple of bumpers on your car, truck, or SUV, but you probably don't give them much thought. Most people don't consider bumpers a big deal until they're involved in a collision, and at that point you might realize that your bumpers have saved you from serious damage to your vehicle and to yourself. Bumpers are designed to absorb some of the impact during a crash. They also provide protection for the more delicate components of your car, truck, or SUV, like your radiator. When you accidentally back into a guardrail or a telephone pole, your rear bumper is going to keep your tail lights from being smashed. Some front bumpers go the extra mile in collision protection by using crumple zones and chambers filled with hydraulic fluid. Of course, your bumpers are also designed to look great and give your vehicle an overall smooth and aerodynamic appearance. During the course of normal driving, dents, scratches and dings are going to inevitably appear on your bumpers. Rust and corrosion can also cause problems, making these important safety features weaker than they should be. If you should happen to be involved in a collision, you don't want to rely on a rusty bumper to absorb the impact. Take a good look at your bumpers the next time you head out on the road. Have they seen better days? If this is the case, replacing your bumpers will restore your peace of mind and transform the appearance of your vehicle. No matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive, we can provide you with new bumpers at a price you'll be able to appreciate.

Things to consider when choosing a replacement bumper
Once the integrity of your car bumper has been compromised, you will need to replace instead of repair. Bumpers come in a wide range of materials and styles. Before you go shopping, make sure you know the basics so that you'll know exactly what to buy.
- Material ?Replacement bumpers are usually made of poly resin (plastic), fiberglass, carbon fiber or metal. Each offers specific advantages and disadvantages.
- Polypropylene or ABS Plastic bumpers ? Pros: Poly resin bumpers are used by most automakers. They are the sturdiest and most impact resistant; simply bends or rips on impact but can crack as well; and are ready to be primed and painted. Cons: It's not easily repairable and is non-sandable.
- Fiberglass bumpers ? Pros: These are used by most aftermarket parts maker; lightweight and strong; easily repairable; sandable and paintable. Cons: It is less flexible than plastic and more prone to cracking.
- Carbon fiber bumpers ? Pros: These are lightweight and durable; heat-resistant; ready for painting but can also be used unpainted. Cons: The quality of carbon fiber varies according to the manufacturer. Also, it can be repaired but must be painted afterwards. It is also more expensive than the other types.
- Metal ? Pros: These bumpers are strong and durable. Cons: Very heavy. Metal bumpers and winches should only be used on off-road vehicles.
- Vehicle use ? The right bumper may depend on how you use your vehicle and the conditions that your car and its bumpers will face.
- City driving ? If you use your vehicle mainly to get around town, you may choose any kind of bumper material and any style that you prefer. But, it is wiser to choose a lightweight bumper.
- Off-road ? If you often go on off-roading adventures, you will need a heavy and durable front and rear bumper. Metal bumpers and winches are the best choice for off-roading because these will allow you to navigate boulder-strewn terrain, mud pits and swampland.
- Racing ? For moderate racing, you will need something that can withstand the abuse of the race circuit. Plastic and carbon fiber bumpers can handle the scrapes and scratches but you may also use fiberglass if you race infrequently.

Restore and Repair Your Busted Bumper
As a kid, you must have thought that driving an actual car is like riding the bumper cars in your local carnival. But of course, that isn't the case. Basically, the purpose of bumpers is similar to those of the actual rides in carnivals; they are designed to sustain an impact without damaging the automobile's safety systems. However, even a small dent in the front or rear bumper can be an eyesore and can definitely degrade the value of your vehicle. Having it repaired at auto shops will probably leave you bankrupt due to the expenses. But, why pay them when you do it yourself for free? Here's a guide on how you can restore, remedy, and repair your busted bumper.
Difficulty level: Easy
Tools you'll need:
- A rag
- A couple of towels
- A bucket of ice water
- A heat gun or a blow dryer
Step 1: Settle the towels on a flat surface for the bumper to rest.
Step 2: To avoid scratch marks or more dents, remove the bumper off your car and place it on top of the towel.
Step 3: For about 2-5 minutes, hold the heat gun or blow dryer on top of the dent to heat up the surface. This will allow you to easily push back out the dented area.
Step 4: After doing Step 3, soak the rag in a bucket of ice water and wipe the surface to cool it down. Check the area until it is back in place.
Step 5: Mount the bumper back.
Here are some safety tips to keep in mind:
- For a faster process, use the heat gun instead of the blow dryer.
- Wear gloves so that you won't burn your hands.
- Four hands are better than two, so ask a buddy to help you push the dented surface out.
- If you're having difficulty with pushing the surface out, you can use a rubber mallet to help you push.
