WARN’s STUNNING Ascent Bumpers

So you’re aiming to add a winch to your truck, and you know you want it branded with that big red “W”.  Whether you’ll be putting that geartrain to the test or never even put it into ‘free spool’, we won’t ask.  Whatever your winch needs may be, chances are your stock bumper doesn’t come equipped to accommodate one straight from the lot.  There are some solutions with a smaller footprint, but let’s face it, this is a perfect excuse to get that flimsy plastic bumper outta there and swap it with some metal.  But now comes the tricky part.  Selecting a bumper that ticks all the boxes can be confusing.  Tight fit?  Easy bolt-on installation?  Light mounting?  Sensor compatibility?  And most importantly, will it fit my winch?  Few things are worse in the truck aftermarket than getting a new bumper installed only to realize your expensive winch won’t clear the cutout area.  Well, there’s a simple solution!  Why not get a bumper from the company that makes your winch?  Warn’s Ascent Bumpers look great, fit snugly, and easily house your Warn winch!

While you first and foremost think of Warn as a winch company, their Ascent line of bumpers should shift your thinking.  They combine low-profile styling with high-performance off-road features you demand in a bumper.
