An off-road trail is a Jeep’s natural habitat, but Jeep didn’t build its stock bumpers for off-road use. If you take your Jeep off-roading often, you may want to invest in a steel bumper.
Finding the best steel bumper brand for your Jeep can be challenging, as there are a lot of options. Let’s talk about what to look for while shopping for a steel bumper.
What To Look For In A Steel Bumper
A steel bumper is an investment. The main factors you’ll want to consider when choosing a steel bumper for your Jeep are:
- Materials: You want to avoid plastic or aluminum bumpers. 100% steel bumpers are the strongest bumpers money can buy.
- Welding quality: A high-quality weld on a steel bumper will provide the most protection in the event of a crash.
- Fitment: Fitment is essential in bumpers. You want a steel bumper that’s CNC (computer numerical control) cut. It ensures that all the angles, joints, and bracket locations are accurate.
- Manufacturing country: Steel quality standards vary between countries. If you want a bumper made with high-quality steel, go with one that’s made in the USA from US steel, as the US has stringent steel quality standards.
- Customization: To get the most value out of a steel bumper, get a custom-built one. You’ll get to customize it just the way you want. For example, you can opt to add light holes or a winch mount to your steel bumper.
- Warranty: A steel bumper is a big investment, so it’s wise to find one that’s warrantied. The best kind of warranty you can find on a steel bumper is a lifetime warranty.
When considering an aftermarket steel bumper, you might be curious about weight. We talk more about that in this blog post.
