This is a full plate winch bumper weld-together kit for the 1997-2004 Dodge Dakota and 1998-2003 Dodge Durango. It features a bolt-on design, protected winch mount, and the best approach angle of any bumper on the market. This bumper allows you to forget about approach angle and substantially improves the offroad capability of your Dodge. It offers excellent protection from rocks, trees and animal strikes and has been kept to a weight of 95lbs through careful design work.
Some other notable features include the recessed recovery points. These 3/8″ thick recovery points are recessed into pockets in the bumper, resulting in a cleaner look and eliminating the catching points that traditional recovery lugs can become. These are placed directly in line with the trucks frame, resulting in the strongest possible attachments for the most rigorous offroad recoveries. This bumper is also available in 1/4″ thicker 5052 Aluminum. The result is a very strong bumper that comes in at a feather weight 47lbs! You get all the benefits of a tough offroad winch bumper without the weight penalty.
Forget the outrageous lead times of many bumper options that are measured in months. All of our bumper kits ship within 3-10 business days.
As for welding, with everything designed using CAD software and then CNC laser-cut to size, the pieces fit together perfectly and this makes for a very simple assembly process. All kits come with detailed instructions with plenty of clearly labelled diagrams that are made using cutting-edge CAD software. This bumper kit is well within the ability of a novice welder and many customers have purchased it as their very first welding project with great results! This is made possible by the clean parts fit-ups and thick material. These are two factors that make welding significantly easier. Welding is one of those skills that is easier to learn than you may think and once you can do it, you’ll wonder how you ever got by without it. Alternatively, many individuals buy the kits and then have a local welder assemble it for them. Even in this case, it typically ends up being less expensive than buying a pre-fabricated bumper – especially after considering the lower shipping costs of our kits vs. fully assembled bumpers.
