Hendrickson Bumper and Trim has added AERO CLAD bumpers for the Peterbilt Model 367 and 587 trucks to its all-makes aftermarket program. Offering weight savings with a bright mirror-like finish, they’re said to be more durable than traditional chrome metal bumpers.
The new Model 587 bumper has an additional 2.8 in. of ground clearance, compared to the factory unit, making it less susceptible to damage caused by curbs, ramps and snow drifts. Its Model 367 mate is said to be 26 lb lighter than the steel OEM bumper option.
AERO CLAD bumpers are also corrosion-resistant. Their bright mirrored finish will not pit, fade or crack like chrome-plated bumpers, Hendrickson says, and they don’t require touch-ups like painted types. They come with a five-year limited warranty.
AERO CLAD is a bi-metal material that bonds stainless steel and aluminum at a molecular level. The result is a finish that will not rust, peel or fade over time. It’s much lighter than traditional steel while maintaining higher yield strength.
The new bumpers are available now through Peterbilt dealers.
