When shopping for a new bumper for your UTV, there’s an absolute plethora of choices in a very crowded and rapidly growing market. However, looking at the offerings from Pro Armor makes it quickly clear why they make a strong case to be your next aftermarket bumper for your UTV.
For starters, Pro Armor was one of the first manufacturers of aftermarket bumpers to hit the market, and with the extensive R&D and testing they put into the products they produce, have stood the test of time to remain one of the premiere choices in aftermarket bumpers.
With all this extensive R&D and the level of working knowledge Pro Armor has on various platforms, these bumpers have a fantastic fit and finish once installed. As a bonus, Pro Armor bumpers perfectly match the factory colors of the vehicles they are designed for.
Being essentially a bolt-on modification, the installation of a Pro Armor bumper is streamlined and straightforward, no need to do anything other than tighten bolts and check the fit. The overall look is nice and aggressive, appropriate for builds intended to tear up the dunes or gnaw some dirt.
You can find a wide range of options available for Polaris UTVs on the Pro Armor website. Their bumpers also come in factory colors, like Polaris blue, as well as an array of grays and whites. Along with the fitment and color options, Pro Armor keeps a healthy stock of various offerings. Unlike so many other things in the last two years, getting what you want isn’t much of a hassle.
Looking at construction, rock solid 1.75” aluminum tubing ensures Pro Armor bumpers can take a beating without adding extra weight. No matter what you are looking to accomplish with your UTV, an addition of a Pro Armor bumper is surely a smart move.
As for the rear bumper, it has plenty of room to admire the mechanical aspects of your UTV, while still providing ample protection. Aftermarket exhausts can be a work of art on their own and Pro Armor ensures it stays on display while providing some nice aggressive lines to the rear of your vehicle.
For those who want to take an extra step beyond just the bumpers, both the front and rear pair very nicely with the skid plates and grills also from Pro Armor. Combining a few of these off the shelf parts can really make a custom look for your UTV with the additional protection they provide.
Besides looking good and keeping your ride safe, the Pro Armor bumpers come with some handy mounting points for lighting options. Whether you opt for Pro Armor lighting cubes or fitting a 10” light bar up front, added lighting can certainly be a game changer for rides at night or challenging visual conditions. Having baked in lighting mounts on a bumper is extremely helpful compared to brackets or clamps you might otherwise need.
With all the necessary hardware for installation also included, it’s absolutely one of the best available choices for an aftermarket bumper for your Polaris. Combining ease of installation with style, function, and protection makes Pro Armor bumpers an easy upgrade.
