Texas Bumper

A “Texas bumper” is a large, chrome, flat-faced bumper that can be found on some trucks.

2004 Peterbilt 379-119"BBC with 63” bunk.  I modified an Italeri Pete 378 kit, added a resin bunk from Spaulding Trading and Shipping (removing the right door, and adding a rear window), a Texas Bumper from Griffen Designs, and muffler shields from an Italeri Western Star.  Plenty of Bare Metal Foil on this!

Here is the truck with the moose bumper taken off and a Texas bumper added on to it. It looks a lot nicer with the Texas bumper for sure.

Texas bumper?

Actually I was thinking of those chromed, flat-face bumpers that hang lower in the middle and are usually found on F-250s (around my area, anyway). My apologies - I forgot to say this is strictly a rear bumper! A pic of it: http://www.ford-trucks.com/pictorial/big/1994_f150_4.html
Thanks for the reply!

Texas bumper?


I’ve got one on my ‘90 F250. The company is Hercules bumpers, and I think they’re out of somewhere in Texas. The address is still on the bumper. Later on today (if and when it quits raining!!) I’ll go get it and post it for you. It’s quite a bumper, and looks good too.

Texas bumper?

The bumper you’re looking for is manufactured by Hercules bumpers, and I believe they ARE in Texas, though I don’t remember where. I have one on my F250. Looks good, and strong! I think it has like a 15,000lb pull weight and 3,000lb tongue weight. The address is still on it, so I’ll look it up for you in a while (if it stops raining!!).
