What is the Cost of Road Armor Bumpers?
If you had $4,000 to spend on a Road Armor Bumper, you would be a very happy customer. But so would you if you only wanted to spend $1,000. Like many aftermarket replacement bumper brands, Road Armor has a wide selection that varies widely in price and design.
In particular, Road Armor is renowned for its modular designs that give you the freedom to customize your front and rear bumpers to suit your needs and tastes.

The cost of Road Armor bumpers can seem high when compared to replacement bumpers from other manufacturers, especially imported ones. But once you have had the chance to see and feel the quality that goes into Road Armor bumpers, you will find them a steal for the price.
You can’t argue with this kind of Texas steel, rightly called the Intimidator.
The material used and quality of craftsmanship that goes into Road Armor bumpers is exceptional. These bumpers are built for strength, resilience, durability, and enjoyment. Thanks to their beauty and easy bolt-on installation, they are a favorite among America’s hardcore 4x4 enthusiasts.
There are a few features that set Road Armor bumpers apart from other replacement bumper brands:
- High-grade steel components: Road Armor uses smooth steel components, varying between 0.25 (¼”) inch and 0.1875 (3/16”) inch sheet metal. For comparison, that’s almost 2.5 times thicker than 12-gauge sheet metal.
- Precision laser cutting: Road Armor bumpers are cut using modern laser cutters, which are highly accurate and energy-efficient. It also produces minimal metal distortion.
- Hand-welded to perfection: the weld quality on Road Armor bumpers is some of the best we have seen anywhere. The coverage, consistency, strength, and beauty of them are exceptional.
- Five-stage powder-coating process: Road Armor probably has the thickest, glossiest matte finish on truck bumpers. Here’s the powder coating process in action.
- Obsession with craftsmanship: Road Armor engineers take a lot of pride in tight tolerances, seam quality, and internal structural integrity. What we see as a result are ultra-strong, beautiful bumpers that fit perfectly every time.

Are Road Armor Bumpers Better Than Others?
Yes. When compared to other cheap brands, Road Armor has stronger, heavier, more beautiful bumpers. The quality of steel used, level of craftsmanship, and beautiful finish on the company’s bumpers are impeccable.
How Much Do Road Armor Bumpers Weigh?
Made of solid smooth steel sheets, Road Armor bumpers are heavy. Depending on the Series you choose, the bumper can weigh 200-350 pounds. If you are also going to have a huge winch installed (Road Armor supports up to 16,500 winches), your front end is going to be loaded. We recommend upgrading to 5,000-pound front springs or better.
Are Road Armor Bumpers Different?
Yes, Road Armor bumpers are designed and built differently from many other brands. For one, the company uses super-heavy-duty smooth steel and boxed-in internal structures. Even better, Road Armor uses a modular design that lets you tweak the bumper to your taste and needs by changing components such as the end pods.
Are Expensive Replacement Bumpers Worth It?
When it comes to bumpers that protect your truck from impact, no price should be too high. You could encounter a deer while going 70 mph, in which case you would want the strongest front bumper on your truck to protect you so that you can keep going.
Cheap bumpers may save you a few hundred dollars now, but you will pay much more in repair costs after an accident. Road Armor bumpers have a lifetime warranty against breakage, meaning that you can trust them with your life.
