4th Gen Dodge Ram 1500 High Clearance Rear Bumper Kit

From: USD$712.22

This is a high clearance DIY weld-together plate bumper kit for the 4th gen (2009-2018) Dodge Ram 1500 and (2019-2023) Dodge Ram 1500 Classic. This bumper is very unique in that it incorporates the factory hitch receiver, full wrap-around protection and the best departure angle on the market. It does all of this while still maintaining the factory trailer plug and spare tire location! By cutting the factory bedsides up to the bottom of the tail lights, this bumper replaces the most vulnerable part of the truck's bed with low profile plate side wings that can take a beating.


When we set out to design this bumper, we wanted to create something that packed as much functionality as possible while still looking great and complementing the lines of the 4th gen (2009-2018) Dodge Ram 1500 and (2019-2023) Dodge Ram 1500 Classic. The low profile wrap-around design and optional side hoops mean that this bumper will take your Ram’s offroad performance to new levels. The sloping rear profile and optional recessed hitch receiver further increase clearance and provide a smooth surface to slide over obstacles. These features make a very noticeable difference during deep ditch crossing and steep obstacle climbs where other aftermarket bumpers with bulky rear profiles will hang up and impede progress on the trail. Simply put, this bumper allows you to forget about departure angle and substantially improves the offroad capability of your Ram!

To maintain the full towing capacity of the vehicle, we designed this bumper to be fully compatible with the factory hitch receiver. Alternatively, if you prefer to ditch the factory hitch receiver, this bumper is also available with an integrated hitch receiver that provides even more ground clearance gains.

To finish things off nicely, this bumper comes pre-cut with holes for the factory trailer wiring plug, license plate, and spare tire lowering mechanism. Simply pop them out of your factory bumper and add them to your new Coastal Offroad bumper without any wiring extensions or modifications required.

And of course, this feature-packed bumper is built from heavy duty 3/16″ steel or 1/4″ aluminum that provides excellent protection from rocks, trees and inattentive motorists while careful design work and the low profile design have resulted in weights of 93lbs and 46lbs for the steel and aluminum versions respectively. The bumper mounts to the vehicle with up to 9 factory mounting points. While this is certainly overkill, it ensures that impact and pulling forces are evenly distributed into your Ram’s frame.

The optional swing out carriers come in either a single or dual sided configuration and are built to accept a tire up to 37″ in diameter. Both carriers include mounting brackets for a hilift jack and other recovery items. The dual swing out includes the hilift mount as well as a lockable jerry can holder designed to fit two 20L NATO style jerry cans. These carriers feature heavy duty chromoly heim joint hinges, locking 2000lb toggle latches, T-handle spring pins, and a replaceable UHMW catch pad that provides secure, rattle free operation. The heim joints in conjunction with the toggle latch provide tons of adjustability, allowing for easy assembly and guaranteed alignment of the carrier latch. The single swing out add-on weighs 34lbs and the dual swing out add-on with gas can holder weighs 77lbs.

Bumper assembly

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.
