Dodge Bumper Articles

With any vehicle from any decade, safety has always been an issue, especially now. More and more regulations are passed to protect the motorists as the freeways keeps getting packed. When before it is mainly the performance, capabilities and designs of the vehicle that gets the attraction of buyers, safety ratings have now been widely acknowledged. So in response for this great demand, both from the government and the buying public, more and more features and accessories are provided to further bolster the safeness levels of these vehicles. Some of these parts, features and accessories for safety are air bags, seat belts, crumple zones in the body, child safety locks, child safety equipments and bumpers for example.

 
Sadly though, while new innovations are being spewed out at a rapid state for the development of motor vehicle safety, bumpers have been at the losing end with less durable materials being used but lowered weight gained. Bumpers now are more of use for low speed collisions. As to their purpose, Dodge front bumpers and rear bumpers are designed to absorb as much shock and impact during low-speed collisions. They also add to the Dodge vehicles design and style. Before, bumpers were made out of heavy steel, such that can be found on most old cars, they can take more impact or force.
 
Most bumpers today are produced from aluminum, rubber, fiberglass composite, or plastic. These bumpers would also usually come with a plastic cover matching the body color of the vehicle. Also, most bumpers use polypropylene foam or plastic honeycomb as well as energy absorbers and brackets, for better performance and shock absorption.
 
Dodge bumpers are designed to exceed the standards in normal bumper functions; they are guaranteed to absorb the impacts produced from collisions to avoid great damage to the Dodge vehicle and to the driver and passengers. Not only are Dodge front bumpers tough and durable, they are stylish and has great designs to add to the overall impact of the Dodge vehicle.

Tips to Maintain the Top Condition of Your Dodge Bumper

One of the most well-known exterior parts of the vehicle is the bumper. Its durable construction allows it to provide protection to the nearby components, such as the radiator, in cases of minor collisions. But since your Dodge bumper is an exterior part, it is not exempted from potential damage brought by different road elements. If it is not well-maintained, it can easily become worn out. It can even ruin the overall look of your ride. So to extend the service life of your Dodge bumper, here are four tips that you can follow:

  • Use gentle cleaning tools and substances to keep the bumper dirt-free.

Compared to other auto parts, the bumper is more exposed to different road elements that may leave dirt, moisture, and other particles on its surface. To keep the bumper clean and free from scratches, you must wash it using gentle cleansers. A mild car soap or car wash solution can get the job done instead of other cleaning products that have strong chemicals, which can damage the paint and finish of the bumper. A soft cloth or microfiber towel can help in wiping the bumper while washing it. Just avoid wiping in circles so as not to leave unsightly swirl marks that could ruin the look of the bumper.

  • Apply cleaning gel to enhance the bumper's protection.

Washing the bumper may keep it clean, but this method is not enough to provide it with extra protection. So it pays to apply a bumper cleaning gel on its surface. This type of cleaner is intended for the material used in most bumpers nowadays. The cleaning gel can enhance the protection of the bumper against fading due to too much heat exposure. It can also help to restore the shine of the bumper without damaging the paint.

  • Buff the bumper with a sandpaper to remove oxidation.

Your bumper can also be prone to oxidation due to its constant exposure to air and water. The process can speed up especially if the bumper does not have any protective coating on it. So if you notice that the surface of the bumper is starting to oxidize, it is time to buff it with the help of sandpaper. This can get rid of the oxidation from your bumper while preparing its surface for the application of a protectant. The latter must then be applied so that further oxidation can be prevented from occurring.

  • Apply lacquer thinner if the bumper has paint stains.

Paint stains, no matter how small they are, can affect the quality and looks of your bumper. So if your bumper has such stains, deal with them using paint thinner. This can help remove the paint stains from the bumper's surface to prepare it for repainting. However, make sure to apply only a thin layer of the lacquer thinner with the help of a paintbrush. Too much spreading of lacquer thinner will simply form a lump on the surface without removing the stain effectively.
