General

Do you have dealers or do you sell direct?

Both. Give us a call at 877-294-2726. We will quote you right off of the website, and let you know if any discounts are available. Unfortunately we cannot control the pricing other shops sell our bumpers for, or what options they provide. We would like to know if you feel one of our dealers are pricing in an inappropriate manner so that we can investigate it.

What about installation? Will I have to modify my truck in any way?

Our rear bumpers fit right above your factory hitch, therefore no modifications are necessary to your vehicle.

Do you powdercoat or paint?

Our standard process is powder in a satin black finish, which is included in normal retail pricing of each unit. We have worked with DuPont to formulate our own custom highly scratch resistant powder coating. If you desire to have a custom color we may ship your product RAW (bare metal) and you may finish it locally.

What are the bumpers made out of?

The highest grade A36 descaled premium steel means no mill scale for years of reistance against corrosion and the ultimate bond between the parent metal and finish coating.

Do you offer bumpers in chrome?

No, we do not chrome plate bumpers. We also recommend against it. Once a chrome-plated surface is scratched or chipped, the chrome will begin to flake off leaving you with an ugly eyesore of a bumper.

Will I lose my spare tire spot with a rear winch bumper?

That depends on the make and model of your vehicle. Please call before ordering.

How much do the bumpers weigh?

A base front bumper weighs 145lbs. If you add a guard or install a winch, this will add to the overall weight.

How much weight will my Road Armor® bumper tow?

Our standard rear bumpers are rated at Class IV towing capacity. Additional capacity can be ordered as an option.

Can I keep my OEM tow hooks?

Our full replacement bumpers come with standard shackle mounts in the front and rear models and take the place of the factory tow hooks. Our brushguards are designed to work in conjunction with the OEM tow hooks.

Shipping

What about shipping?

We use LTL trucks, most commonly USF Bestway. Shipping and crating usually run between $250-$550. It is in your best interests to inspect the crate/skid when it arrives and ensure that it is in good shape before you sign the bill of lading. If the crate/skid is damaged, note this on the bill of lading and ask the driver how to file a freight claim damage report. You will probably be given a phone number to call in order to request the appropriate forms. Have the driver circle the "pro number" (their company tracking number) for you on your copy of the bill of lading. You will need to refer/provide this number to the trucking company so they know who you are. Take photos of all damage before you open the crate/skid.
