With benefits that come with the installation of a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 rear bumper, it is well complemented if you install a bumper guard. The ease that comes with attaching and detaching it is what makes it a good asset to have and drive with at all times. If you are hearing it for the first time, it is made of rubber or foam-filled pad that you attach and detach at the back of your vehicle depending on the function you intend to use it for. It fits well for both OEM and Dodge Ram aftermarket bumpers. Below are some of the benefits associated with the guard installation.
Protection while parking:
Most damages on the dodge ram rear bumper occur during reverse parking. It is easier to bump into a pole or another vehicle if there is no one to watch out for you. You home garage is not an exception too because of the walls and limited space to fit your truck in. But with a guard installed at the rear end, such instances will be avoided. The pad absorbs an enormous amount of the pressure likely to scratch, dent, damage the bumper or the car parked behind you or the wall. You will no longer experience the color of your bumper coming off.
Reduced whiplash in the event of a fender bender:
The guard on the 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 Rear bumper, absorbs impact in case of the fender bender that will minimize injuries to those onboard at the time of the incident and reduce any chance of whiplash. The vertical bars on guard will reduce the impact felt by the occupants in the vehicle. The shock absorption is necessary because of the foam-filled in the guard and not the rubber pad in some of the guards. That is why you need to choose the right material between the two if you want that whiplash protection.
Protecting the color of your truck:
The protection it offers is in two ways; damaging the bumper yourself or preventing the harm from others. This occurs especially in parking areas in the public places. Depending on the color of your bumper, repainting it can be costly. Although it may cause slight dents, the soft pad will not remove any paint on minor impact. The vertical bars create a safe distance that will prevent you from any contact with others in any situation.
In addition to the above, whether installing it on the 2003 or 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Rear Bumper, your vehicle becomes appealing because of the many styles and available colors to choose from. Your truck appears sporty and streamlined. You will stand out in the parking lot wherever you decide to park.
