American Expedition Vehicles has proven that you don't need to have a monstrosity of a bumper to deliver superior front end protection, securely house a capable winch, and offer provisions for auxiliary lighting with their Premium Front Bumper for your Heavy Duty Ram. At first glance, many would think this is a factory bumper, and for good reason, as it precisely follows and matches the factory body lines, fully complementing the distinguishable Ram styling. Whether you use your truck for overlanding adventures, or just want a clean way to mount a winch, or none of the above, the AEV Premium Front Bumper is truly a cut above the rest.

Every component of the Ram Premium Front Bumper is robust and designed to work hard and the 4mm thick stamped steel face provides a superior level of protection while also safely accommodating up to a 16,500 lb. winch to assist with vehicle recovery. The massive ductile iron 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 AEV Premium Front Bumper is available with a number of different lighting configurations. For the ultimate lighting experience, a 6.7” AEV/Vision X light kit is available in two versions - a tungsten halogen version (Euro beam), producing 1,800 lumens or an LED version, producing an incredible 3,200 lumens (up to 2,500 feet of usable light). Other options include an OE fog light bezel that allows for the factory fog lights to be installed in the AEV Premium Front Bumper and a blank fog light bezel that is designed for customers who don’t want to run auxiliary lights right now, but may choose to do so later on.

Heavy duty Ram trucks are designed to work hard and are very capable tow vehicles. Proper cooling is essential for any hard working engine, especially in hot environments and higher elevations. Due to the lower intercooler position on the 2013+ Cummins powered Ram, a new intercooler shroud is supplied (if applicable) to ensure that there is no loss in cooling efficiency after the AEV Front Bumper is installed.

As the industry’s first and only heavy duty stamped steel Front Bumper for the Ram, AEV’s Premium Front Bumper offers an unparalleled level of front end protection and styling.

OPTIONAL FRONT SKID PLATE - 2010-2013 Diesel Engine ONLY

Absolutely the only thing that can make your AEV Premium Front Bumper any tougher would be the addition of an AEV Front Bumper Skid Plate.  That's right, if you want unparalleled protection under your bumper to protect your engine and other vitals, this fabricated piece of 3/16" steel will get the job done.
