Upgrading to an aftermarket bumper has several benefits. The heavy-duty steel absorbs more damage than an OEM unit, they often include mounting provisions for additional accessories, and they elevate your stock vehicle into a beastly, custom ride. To help you choose from the hundreds of aftermarket bumpers out there, we look at the best truck bumpers available in 2024.

1. Steelcraft Elevation Front Bumper

Aftermarket bumpers have to check a lot of boxes to pass muster with modern truck owners, and the Steelcraft Elevation Front Bumper meets the majority of those demands. The bumper is made of six-gauge steel with a textured, matte-black powder coat. It's also designed to let you retain your OE fog lights, tow hooks, license plate mount, parking sensors, and front cameras. If you need extra lighting off road, the Elevation can accommodate most double-row LED light bars. Get all the extra protection you need without sacrificing any modern truck features with this great bumper from Steelcraft.

No drilling or cutting is required for most installations.

The bumper is protected by a two-year limited warranty.

2. Steelcraft HD Front Bumper

For a more rugged-looking bumper that still lets you keep factory parking sensors and tow hooks, take a look at the Steelcraft HD Front Bumper. The bumper combines schedule 40 pipe and diamond plate steel to create a durable upgrade from your OEM unit. The integrated 2-inch receiver hitch is perfect for mounting accessories such as cargo racks, bike racks, and even certain snow plows.

Black powder coating prevents corrosion.

Removable panel for front cameras.

3. Iron Cross HD Push Bar

Proudly built in the USA, the Iron Cross HD Push Bar Bumper offers superior damage resistance and much more. The bumper includes mounts for 4-inch round fog lights and can also be equipped with a winch, giving you the ability to overcome difficult off-road obstacles. Dual-welded shackle mounts allow even further accessorizing of the bumper. Ten-gauge steel ensures the bumper can withstand punishment on and off the highway.

The bumper uses fully welded, CNC-cut components.

Base and grille guard versions are also available.

4. Ranch Hand Summit Series Grille Guard

For top to bottom front-end protection, a combination bumper and grille guard is the ultimate truck upgrade. The Ranch Hand Summit Series Grille Guard Bumper incorporates a grille guard and a 12-gauge steel bumper into one unit, creating a barrier between your truck and any potentially damaging oncoming hazards. Ranch Hand goes the extra mile by using custom-punched inserts to complement different grille designs.

A two-inch receiver is built into the front of the bumper, where it waits to be equipped with any number of accessories to further upgrade your truck.

The one-piece welded design prevents rattling while driving.

No drilling or cutting is required on most trucks.
