If you are tired of flimsy factory bumpers that dent in a heavy rain—or plastic end caps that shatter with the slightest bump—your day just got a whole lot better. We are very proud to introduce our own GoWesty designed, hand-built plate steel bumper set. These could very well be the last bumpers you will ever buy for your van. With their 12-gauge plate steel and ultra-rigid boxed design, these bumpers are extremely tough while remaining lightweight. We developed this bumper set to have minimal overhang in any direction to optimize ground clearance and reduce approach and departure angles. These features are especially important for off-highway environments. So if you have been looking for extra impact protection, or a new tough look for your Vanagon, our bullet proof bumpers are just the ticket.

• Light, yet strong, 12 gauge steel
• Fully boxed construction for ultimate strength
• Durable satin black wrinkle finish powder coat
2" receiver hitch compatible* hitch receiver sold separately below!
• Simple bolt on installation
• Hardware, mounting brackets, and detailed instructions included
• Fits all Vanagon models (2WD & 4WD) from 1980-1991 

Three awesome choices:
• Standard front bumper—The tried and true original GoWesty front bumper!
• High-clearance front bumper—Our latest iteration features a high-clearance design for serious off-roading! See photos below!
• Doka rear bumper—For single- and double-cab Vanagons! This version does NOT have a license plate door cut-out and is not for regular passenger or Westy Vanagons.

*Need a front or rear hitch, too? We offer a bolt-on front hitch, and our rear bumper comes pre-drilled to accept our bolt in 2" receiver hitch, which is sold separately below. Both are strong enough to be used for gear trays, bike racks, to tow anything your Vanagon can handle (rear only), and can even be used as a solid anchor point for getting yourself pulled out of the mud! 

Installation note for 1988-1991 Vanagon with fiberglass "big" bumpers:
Installation of the front bumper requires the removal of several thin sheet metal riser tabs with a hacksaw or Sawzall. The rear bumper includes its own built in "arms" that take the place of the factory bumper mounts.
