A bumper is just a bumper. Or is it? This Fab Fours rear bumper, which fits the 2003-'08 Dodge Ram 1500 and 2003-'09 Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups, not only protects, but also offers integrated steps on each side of the tailgate and 3/4-inch D-ring recovery points. It's engineered for strength while keeping the weight down. The bumper is CNC laser-cut and made from 3/16-inch-thick formed steel, and its design allows you to retain the OEM trailer hitch and trailer wiring locations. The unit weighs approximately 120 pounds, so you'll need a couple of people and/or a hydraulic jack to complete the install.
The team at Attitude Performance in Arlington Heights, Illinois, modified this particular bumper to house a pair of rear-facing aftermarket lights. They also coordinated sending the unit out to be powdercoated to match the truck's factory paint.
