In the old days, bumpers were chrome plated pieces of steel supported by steel brackets. If anything was damaged, repair was simple and straightforward. Today's bumpers are much more complicated, with many more parts. The main bumper is covered by a plastic cover, which may be painted the same color as the body, and the cover will have trim strips or guards attached to it. Instead of just brackets, a modern bumper will have impact absorbers or shocks, which allow the bumper to flex inward upon impact, and these will be hidden by bumper-to-body filler panels. Needless to say, any of these components can be damaged in even a minor fender bender and require replacement. In the past your options for replacing a damaged bumper component were finding a good used one, buying a cheap replacement, or paying big bucks for an OE bumper component. Because damage to these parts is so prevalent, searching for a useable piece from a scrap yard is a waste of time. And many cheap replacement bumper components don't fit properly and aren't even made of the proper gauge material. Today you can fix your car or truck properly and have money left in your pocket with a new quality replacement bumper component from LKQ. LKQ offers OE quality body parts at less than original equipment prices. You get the same quality part that you'd get at the dealer without the high dealer price. A LKQ bumper component will look and fit just like a bumper component from the dealer, so your car or truck will look new again. LKQ bumper components are designed using the latest software so they exactly replicate the OE units, then they're manufactured using the most modern tooling, so the end product looks and fits exactly as designed. A LKQ bumper component is made to the same dimensions as OE with the same gauge material. Body repair is expensive enough without paying more than necessary for quality parts. A LKQ bumper component is the sensible alternative to the high dealer price markup. A LKQ bumper component will get you back on the road in a car or truck that looks brand new, without breaking the bank. LKQ is so confident in the quality of its bumper components that they're backed by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship for as long as the original purchaser owns the vehicle on which the part is installed. This includes perforation (metal rust-through) due to corrosion in normal use.
