There are many reasons you may want to upgrade your bumper. Whether you want increased protection on the road, a higher towing capacity, or just a stylish upgrade to your GMC Sierra, aftermarket steel bumpers from Bumper Superstore may be right for you.

We know all the options can be confusing and if you are not sure what the aftermarket pros and cons are with steel bumpers for GMC Sierra trucks then let's discuss the benefits and drawbacks of upgrading your GMC Sierra bumper to a steel bumper.

The Pros Of Aftermarket Steel Bumpers For GMC Sierra Trucks

Steel bumpers for both the GMC Sierra 1500 and GMC Sierra 2500/3500 are extremely durable, as they are made out of high-quality steel. They hold up well to wear & tear, and are corrosion-resistant. Steel is able to bend instead of breaking when it hits an object, making steel bumpers ideal for off-roading.

They’re also very versatile, since they can help boost your towing capacity when towing with your front bumper, and provide protection from road debris, animals, and other road hazards. Most steel bumpers can also accommodate additional upgrades like winches and LED lights.

Not only that, but they’re stylish, too. A solid steel bumper will make your GMC Sierra look even more aggressive, and helps complement other aftermarket modifications like a truck lift and larger wheels.

 

The Cons Of Aftermarket Steel Bumpers For GMC Sierra Trucks

Aftermarket steel bumpers are not perfect for everyone. The main drawback of GMC Sierra steel bumpers is that they are very heavy.

This can negatively affect your gas mileage, and also makes them more expensive to ship and to install on your car. You may even need to upgrade your springs and/or shocks to accommodate them.

In addition, the heavy weight of aftermarket steel bumpers means that they are difficult to install on your own. If you plan on a DIY installation, you may need the help of a few people to maneuver the bumper into place and install it.
