In the old days, bumpers were chrome plated pieces of steel supported by steel brackets. If anything was damaged, repair was simple and straightforward. Today's bumpers are much more complicated, with many more parts. The main bumper is covered by a plastic cover, which may be painted the same color as the body, and the cover will have trim strips or guards attached to it. Instead of just brackets, a modern bumper will have impact absorbers or shocks, which allow the bumper to flex inward upon impact, and these will be hidden by bumper-to-body filler panels. Needless to say, any of these components can be damaged in even a minor fender bender and require replacement.
In the past your options for replacing a damaged bumper component were finding a good used one, buying a cheap replacement, or paying big bucks for an OE bumper component. 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 components 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 component from Replace.
