Aberle Off Road Cast Aluminum Bumpers
We did a double-take when we read that these bumpers are made from aluminum, since most off-road bumpers are crafted from heavy steel. Aberle Off Road uses heat-treated aerospace grade A356 aluminum. This nets a bumper that's stronger than stock and weighs less than 100 pounds.
*Naturally rust free
*Designed to accommodate bolt-on accessories
