What is the weight of your bumpers?
It depends on the model of truck you have. Most of the 1500 Series trucks have bumpers that weigh between 150 lbs and 175 lbs, depending on the style of brush guard you choose. The 2500 and up Series trucks have bumpers that weigh from 165 lbs to 207 lbs, again depending on the style of brush guard you choose.
Will a winch fit in the bumper?
Absolutely. Most of our bumpers will accommodate up to a 16,500 lb. winch for ¾ ton and up models, and most half-ton models will accommodate up to a 9500 lb. winch. The winch can be front-mounted or bottom-mounted, depending on the model. When purchasing the winch that you want, please either call to verify or refer to your specific bumper to see the winch options that we have available to fit that particular bumper. All winch options will vary depending on the bumper design.
Can your bumpers be changed from one make or model truck to another?
No, our bumpers have been produced to follow the contour of the truck for which it was designed. However, some bumpers fit multiple years of a particular truck make and model.
Will your bumpers work with a body lift?
Our standard designs will not fit without modifications. Please contact your installer to determine if they have the ability to develop mounts specific to your lift modifications.
On your rear bumpers, will I retain my factory receiver?
Yes, you will retain your factory receiver.
Do your rear bumpers accommodate reverse sensors?
Rear sensors will fit in most of our bumper designs. Let your dealer or installer know and they can put them in the bumper at the time of installation.
**NOTE: On Dodge trucks, we cannot guarantee that your sensors will function properly with our after-market bumper.**
Where are your bumpers produced?
All bumpers have been designed and built in our manufacturing facility in Bay Springs, Mississippi. We are proud that all of our bumpers are made right here in the US by American craftsmen.
Are lights included with the bumpers?
Lights are not included in the base price, but can be added as an option when purchasing a bumper. Incandescent reverse lights (approximately 400 lumens) are included with the standard rear bumpers and license plate lights are included when the OEM version does not work with our bumpers. You can also upgrade the reverse lights to LED (approximately 1200 lumens) for the standard rear bumper or add flush mount LED cube lights for the flush mount style rear bumpers at the time of your order.
Do your bumpers affect how the airbags deploy?
No, the airbag is not deployed from contact with the bumper. There is a sensor within the car, not located on the bumper, which tells the bag to inflate. Inflation happens when there is a collision force equal to running into a brick wall at 10 to 15 miles per hour (16 to 24 km per hour). A mechanical switch is flipped when there is a mass shift that closes an electrical contact, telling the sensors that a crash has occurred. The sensors receive information from an accelerometer built into a microchip.
Is Hammerhead™ Armor in affiliation with any other bumper companies?
No, Hammerhead™ Armor is owned by Hol-Mac Corporation, which has a long history in welding products for some of the largest mining trucks in the world. Some off-road enthusiasts that work for Hol-Mac got together and decided they would like to produce a product they were passionate about. All Hammerhead Armor products go through the same quality standards that we have throughout our company. Hol-Mac Corporation is an ISO 9001:2008 certified company. Hammerhead Armor products are only welded by personnel with AWS D1.1 welding certification. You are getting “A1” products at Hammerhead Armor.
Can I buy directly from your factory?
Yes, through this website you are able to purchase directly from Hammerhead™ Armor. You can also purchase the bumpers from dealers by going to our Dealers page on this website.
What is the paint on your bumpers?
We currently offer a textured powdercoat which provides full coverage and a semi-slip-resistant finish when stepping onto the bumper. If you would prefer to have the bumper unpainted, we can also offer that. At checkout, just select the paint option that you desire. If uncoated, the bumper will be shipped with an oil coating to prevent rusting. Remember to wash it thoroughly before painting.
Are any modifications required to mount it on the truck?
No, if your truck’s original bumper mounts have not been damaged, then your Hammerhead™ Armor bumper should be a “bolt-on” installation. If you do have any questions just give us a call and we will help you with the answers.
Does the bumper increase my towing capabilities?
No, the bumper does not add to your towing capabilities.
What are the bumpers made of?
Hammerhead™ Armor bumpers are produced from the same high-quality steel that produces the largest mining trucks in the world. The thickness of the steel varies by bumper and part. The half-ton models consist of 5/16” mounts, 3/4" shackle mounts, 3/16” center and winch mount, and 1/8” sides. The ¾-ton and up models consist of 3/8” mounts, 1” shackle mounts, 3/16” center and outers. It is an A36 carbon steel that is brought into our building in plate form and we shot blast the plate to remove scale, cut the plate, form the plate, machine the plate, and weld the plate to produce your bumpers within the walls of our factory.
