In the old days, bumpers were chrome plated pieces of steel supported by steel brackets. Along with being damaged in a collision, those old bumpers also often transferred a lot of collision damage into the frame and body of the vehicle. Today’s bumpers are much more sophisticated, and designed to absorb the impact energy in a collision to protect valuable body and mechanical components. The bumper reinforcement bar is located behind the decorative plastic cover and made of aluminum, plastic, or composite. Some bumper systems include foam absorbers and these along with the bar and brackets may be designed to crush and absorb the impact energy in a collision, while other reinforcement bars are attached to the vehicle with shock absorbers that take up the energy.
In the past your options for replacing a damaged bumper reinforcement bar were finding a good used one, buying a cheap replacement, or paying big bucks for an OE bumper reinforcement bar. Because damage to these parts is so prevalent, searching for a useable piece from a scrap yard is a waste of time. And many cheap replacement bumper reinforcement bars don’t fit properly and aren’t even made of the proper gauge material.
Today you can fix your car or truck properly and have money left in your pocket with a new quality replacement bumper reinforcement bar from Replace. Replace offers OE quality body parts at less than original equipment prices. You get the same quality part that you’d get at the dealer without the high dealer price. A Replace bumper reinforcement bar will look and fit just like a bumper reinforcement bar from the dealer, so your car or truck will look new again. Replace bumper reinforcement bars are designed using the latest software so they exactly replicate the OE units, then they’re manufactured using the most modern tooling, so the end product looks and fits exactly as designed. A Replace bumper reinforcement bar is made to the same dimensions as OE with the same gauge material.
Body repair is expensive enough without paying more than necessary for quality parts. A Replace bumper reinforcement bar is the sensible alternative to the high dealer price markup. A Replace bumper reinforcement bar will get you back on the road in a car or truck that looks brand new, without breaking the bank. Replace is so confident in the quality of its bumper reinforcement bars that they’re backed by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship for as long as the original purchaser owns the vehicle on which the part is installed. This includes perforation (metal rust-through) due to corrosion in normal use.
When selecting the Replace® component that is right for your model from the Product Options list, you may be offered a choice of Good, Better or Best. Good may be a part manufactured by a different company than the one that made the original part, but because it's based on the same design, it will look and function identically to the OE part. Better may be a part made by a brand name manufacturer and Best may be a part made by the same manufacturer that made the original part. Some parts labeled Best bear the seal of the Certified Automotive Parts Association (CAPA), an independent, non-profit organization that oversees a testing program to guarantee the quality of automotive parts. CAPA certified replacement parts meet the industry's toughest standards. But regardless of how the part is labeled, have confidence that whichever one you choose, it will appear and function to your satisfaction.
