Isuzu Trooper Bumper End

Common Troubles for Your Isuzu Trooper Bumper End

It might be silly to even consider bumper ends-which are essentially bumpers for your bumpers-but considering that the Isuzu Trooper is designed to be used on tough terrain, it's not hard to see why they would make a great investment. After all, bumpers these days are no longer just safety parts, they also contribute to the overall style and look of any vehicle. So clearly, protecting them is still a high priority. As one might expect then, your bumper ends take quite a lot of punishment. If you're not one to want them to simply fall off as you drive along-possibly taking your bumper with it-read on!

Extra loud thumps

Bumper ends are designed to be rather thick and heavy, so when they are a little bit loose-if not bolted on properly-they tend to thump noisily in the wind as you drive along. In some cases, they even take the bumper itself along for a noisy ride, making it slam onto your ride's frame with a jarring noise. As irritating as this symptom is, it's really easy to remedy. Simply tighten up the attachment points of the bumper and to make sure it stays flush with the body. Reinforce the bumper attachment as well using some epoxy putty to make sure it stays put in spite of the added weight that the bumper ends place on it.

Cracks and surface discolorations

It's bound to happen, really-the world around us simply wears down a lot of the exposed surfaces on any of our rides rendering it vulnerable to cracking and discolorations. That's why it's important to always inspect your ride-and the surface of your exposed bumper ends-regularly. If you catch a crack while it is still small, application of epoxy putty in the area is really enough to prevent the crack from lengthening or widening. Discolorations are a bit tougher and might represent a deeper damage to your bumper ends. If you notice any discolorations, remove the bumper end and check underneath the area of discoloration for any internal damage.

  • Top Tips for Keeping Your Isuzu Trooper Bumper End in Tip-Top Shape 27 February 2013

    It's funny how people today get worked up about the condition of their bumper-especially when you're talking about bumpers on an adventuring vehicle like the Isuzu Trooper. After all, the whole idea behind bumpers is that they get-well-bumped a lot. Enter bumper ends. These bumpers for your bumpers do more than simply protect, they also reinforce your existing bumpers to make them far more resistant to impact damage. Additionally, they restore your bumper height to more or less what it once was when you first bought your Trooper. Naturally, you wouldn't just leave your bumper ends to the elements without paying it much attention-they haven't invented bumper ends for bumper ends, after all. These are a few things you can do to keep your bumper ends well-maintained.


    Keep them clean-always


    The most basic and most fundamental thing that you can do to ensure the longevity of your bumper stop is one that many people actually ignore-keep it clean. The first reason to constantly clean your bumper end is aesthetic: wiping off the dirt, mud, and grime prevents scratches and discoloration from forming. The second reason is very practical: it allows you to keep the bumper end visible, making it easy for you to spot any damage easily. Cleaning your bumpers stop is simple enough. Some water, a clean rag, maybe even a spot of cleaner. But depending on the amount of dirt that is congealed on the end, you should do this carefully. You might end up scratching your own bumper end with too-aggressive scrubbing.


    Check for damage-constantly


    The other way to increase the lifespan of your bumper end is to head off damage before it worsens. The simplest way to go about this is to inspect it as often as you can-once a week at the very least should do. Cracks are the most common type of damage you will encounter in your weekly inspections. For these cracks-no matter how small-it's advisable that you apply some epoxy putty on the cracks to make sure it doesn't grow even wider. Of course, if it is much too wide-greater than a few inches-it might be a better option to simply replace the whole bumper end.
