Should you bother to get a Rear Bumper?

Should you bother to get a Rear Bumper?

You’ve seen us chat about the importance of a Front Bumper TONS of times, but what about rear bumpers? Some folks might think that you only need a bumper at the front to protect the engine and the beautiful badass exterior… but the back matters just as much!


Think of all those times you either backed into something or got really close to hitting something with the back of your truck. What a pain in the backside that is! It’s still another thing to repair, another expense, and even if it might not be as visible as the front, it’s still there. 


If you enjoy an off-road drive, then you might be familiar with trying to get out of a tight space without hitting any trees. That can be quite the challenge if you’re in the middle of a forest. Even when driving on the road, you never know when someone might be suddenly reversing towards the back of your truck.


The importance of a Rear Bumper


The solution? Mounting a heavy-duty rear bumper capable of protecting your truck in the event of anything hitting it. Our US-made badass bumpers are designed to be so tough, that they could back into a tree a few times and still come out untouched. 


But here’s the thing, when you get a Rear Bumper, you don’t just get extra protection. You add a touch of personal style to the overall appearance of your truck and you also get more freedom by adding superior quality lights to make backing up at night easier. Plus, if you ever need it, you can add some handy tow hooks as well.
