Your vehicle's bumpers must be supported and aligned in a manner that not only makes the car or truck look right, but enables it to react properly in a collision. Bumpers on modern vehicles are part of carefully engineered impact absorbing crush zones, designed to protect the vehicle occupants. Reusing damaged or distorted bumper brackets when reassembling a vehicle after a collision is risky, because the vehicle may not be able to be restored to like new appearance, and because the bumper brackets may not perform predictably in another collision.
In the past your options for replacing damaged bumper brackets were finding good used ones, buying cheap replacements, or paying big bucks for OE bumper brackets. Because damage to these parts is hard to detect, searching for useable pieces from a scrap yard is a waste of time. And many cheap replacement bumper brackets 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 new quality replacement bumper brackets 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. Replace bumper brackets will look and fit just like bumper brackets from the dealer, so your car or truck will look new again. Replace bumper brackets 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 bracket 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. Replace bumper brackets are the sensible alternative to the high dealer price markup. Replace bumper brackets 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 brackets 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.
