Aftermarket bumpers are a great way to upgrade the appearance and use of the vehicle. The ICI Magnum bumpers are an example of a steel plate, heavy-duty design that can provide a sturdy platform from which to mount a front winch and driving lights. In additon to making the vehicle more usefull in off-road and work environments, the Magnum bumper also enhances the appearance of new or older trucks. Installing an aftermarket bumper lilke this one is simple, and only requires basic hand tools, a floor jack and some help to hold the bumper up inplace while attaching it to the vehicle.
