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.
