DMI bumper

Have been informed by a few friends that I should get one for my truck since my bumper is the oh so awesome XL painted and its chipping and rusting away. I dont know anything about the DMI bumpers though. Just that they are big and bulkey as hell. Mostly only seen them on farm trucks though. Any input about them? Like what is so different compared to a regular bumper from factory. Thanks!

Re: DMI bumper

They have shock absorbtion built into the hitch. They are nice for pulling anhydrus tanks, grain trailers, or other misc. farm trailers that jerk back and forth a bunch. As far as using them for a regular old car trailer or something you probably won't see much difference.

My dad used to have a truck with one but now we just use a reciever with a polyurethane cushion in it when pulling the jerky farm trailers. It doesn't work quite as well but it does a good enough job that we won't ever put a DMI bumper on again. Here's a link http://www.cabelas.com/prod-1/0010057520121a.shtml

Re: DMI bumper

My dads farm truck has a DMI on it which is an OBS F350. Looks good but personally, i like my Schuck better.

Re: DMI bumper

Are you planning to start pulling farm equipment Ryan?

If not, check out JCWhitney or something for a cheap chrome bumper. If i were you, i'd get me some sand paper and a rattle can. sand that bumper up really good and paint it with some good ol rustoleum, color of your choice.

Re: DMI bumper

No I'm not planning on pulling grain wagons and such. I just want something that looks different than what everybody else has. The bumper I have now is the only eye sore on my truck and I hate looking at it every morning lol

Re: DMI bumper

we have run the DMI bumpers on several trucks and they are very nice but also kind of expensive especially if you get a chrome one. I have afriend that is running a DMI knock off called a "Brute II" ( I Think ) it is almost as good as the DMI's at half the price.

I know they are pricey since I have been informed of by my old man lol
