AEV's Premium Front Bumper is designed with maximum front end protection in mind. As the aftermarket's first and only heavy duty stamped steel front bumper for the Ram 1500, the AEV Premium Front Bumper offers an unparalleled level of front end protection while also enhancing the truck's appearance with its sleek, sophisticated styling.
The Ram 1500 is a lighter, more economical truck platform than its larger counterparts (2500, 3500), making it the ideal choice for a dual purpose, daily driven vehicle. For that reason, AEV paid very close attention to the amount of additional weight was being added to the front end of this half-ton truck. By utilizing a variety of weight saving materials in addition to their stamped steel manufacturing process, AEV was able to minimize the amount of additional weight being added without compromising the Front Bumper's strength or functionality. The Ram 1500 Premium Front Bumper weighs approximately 25kg less than the Ram 2500 Premium Front Bumper.
Every component of AEV's Premium Front Bumper is robust and designed to work hard. A 4mm thick stamped steel face provides a superior level of protection while also safely accommodating an AEV's optional Winch Mount.
Massive A356-T6 cast aluminum tow loops are rated to pass all OE load specifications and double as wear plates to slide over steep obstacles. Lighting is another very important component to safe travel in remote locations. The Ram 1500 Premium Front Bumper includes two knock-out fog light bezels that are designed to work with the optional 6.5” X-Ray Vision light kit.

• Installation of this Front Bumper requires the 2010+ Ram 2500 lower headlight filler panels. This is due to the difference between the 2500's stock front bumer and the 1500's.
