What does it take to replace the front bumper? Why is replacing this part so important? We’ll lay it all out for you here so you’ll be prepared to book your visit to our auto body shop.
What is the Purpose of the Front Bumper?
It’s unlikely that most car owners think about the purpose of their vehicle’s front bumper very often. If you stop for a moment to ponder it, what’s the front bumper actually for? Why is it so important that the bumper remain in good shape, beyond aesthetic appeal?
The front bumper serves as a shield that protects various parts of the car. The hood, grille, and cooling system are just a few parts protected by the front bumper. So, if the unexpected happens and your vehicle is involved in a collision or fender bender, its bumper is designed to help diminish the impact of the accident.
A worn or damaged bumper won’t provide the same type of support or protection that a healthy bumper will.
What is the Front Bumper Made Of?
Most modern cars use a front bumper made out of plastic. In certain instances, the bumper can be composed of steel, aluminum, or rubber.
While plastic may be quicker to crack or dent than other materials, it’s also much easier to replace when needed. So, if you’ve been in a fender bender where the plastic front bumper took a hit, getting your car back into top shape is a cinch. If the bumper doesn’t require a replacement but instead just needs to have a few dings or dents smoothed out, we can handle that as well.
Examining the Integrity of Your Bumper
After an accident, your bumper is likely to be damaged as it is the point of your car designed to protect the rest of the vehicle in the event a collision occurs. In order to determine how damaged the bumper is, though, it will need to be examined.
Fortunately, here at our body shop, we’ll be able to take a look at your bumper and determine whether or not it is beyond repair. If it can be buffed out, you won’t have to worry about replacing it. If it has fallen off the car or has been significantly damaged, though, a front bumper replacement will be needed.
We Can Match the Bumper to Your Car
Throwing on any bumper isn’t a savvy solution to bumper replacements. It’s essential to match the bumper to the make, model, model year, and even the trim level in certain instances.
We can do this at our body shop thanks to our extensive parts center. We’ll find out which type of bumper you need, check our inventory, find the right match, and then install it.
If we don’t have the right fit on hand, we can order it for you. Our extensive dealership network allows us to secure parts for any type of vehicle.
Upgrading Your Bumper
If you’ve been looking to upgrade the appearance of your vehicle, having to replace the bumper is the perfect opportunity.
While bumpers’ primary purpose is to protect the inner workings of your car, truck, or SUV, they do also factor into the appearance. For a vehicle like the Jeep Wrangler, for example, you may want to upgrade the appearance with a new off-road bumper with a winch.
Ultimately, whether you want to upgrade your Jeep’s appearance or have another type of vehicle, we’ll be happy to help you obtain a stylish new bumper if that’s the route you desire!
