FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

General Product Info

Hammerhead bumpers are produced from a high-quality, A36 carbon steel, brought to the Hammerhead manufacturing facility in plate form. We shot blast the plate to remove scale and then cut, form and weld the plate in-house to best fit your vehicle. The thickness of the steel varies by bumper and part.
We currently offer a textured wrinkle powder coat, which provides full coverage and a semi-slip-resistant finish that provides grip for stepping onto the bumper. We do NOT offer products in a prime only option.
Absolutely. Most of our bumpers will accommodate up to a 16,500 lb. winch for ¾ ton and up models, and most half-ton models will accommodate up to a 9500 lb. winch. The winch can be front-mounted or bottom-mounted, depending on the model. When purchasing the winch that you want, please refer to your specific bumper to see the winch options we verified to fit for dimensional comparison. All winch options will vary depending on bumper design.
No. The airbag is not deployed from contact with the bumper, so it will not affect airbags. There is a sensor within the car, not located on the bumper, which tells the bag to inflate.
No. Hammerhead is owned exclusively by Hol-Mac Corporation. All Hammerhead products go through the same quality standards that we have throughout Hol-Mac, which is ISO 9001:2008 certified. Hammerhead products are only welded by personnel with AWS D1.1 welding certification.
Lights are NOT included in the base price but can be added as an option when purchasing a bumper. LED upgraded reverse lights (approximately 1200 lumens) are included with the standard rear bumpers. License plate lights are included when the OEM version does not work with our rear bumpers. You can also add flush mount LED cube lights for the flush mount style rear bumpers.
No. Each Hammerhead bumper is built to follow the contours of the specific vehicle for which it was designed. However, some bumpers will fit multiple years of a particular make and model.
Our standard designs will not fit without modifications. Please contact your installer to determine if they have the ability to develop mounts specific to your lift modifications.
Yes. You will retain your factory receiver. After-market receivers are not verified to work with our bumpers.
Rear sensors will fit in most of our bumper designs. Let your dealer or installer know about the sensors, and they can put them in the bumper at the time of installation. **NOTE: On Dodge trucks, we cannot guarantee that your sensors will function properly with our aftermarket bumper.**
Hammerhead Armor only offers products in our black wrinkle powder coat. However, customers can SPECIAL ORDER their products RAW/UNPAINTED by notating in the "Comments" box at checkout. We HIGHLY discourage this option. If ordered unpainted, the product will arrive as raw, unfinished steel with possible flaws to the metal. The product will require EXTENSIVE polishing and prep work for paint. Please contact your painter before ordering the product this way to ensure they are prepared to do the work for special paint. NOTE: Custom or special order products are NOT eligible for cancellation after 24 hours of original order placement and NOT eligible for return.

Yes. You can purchase Hammerhead Armor products through this website directly. Or, you can also purchase the bumpers from dealers, featured under the Dealers tab at the top of this page.
No. If your truck’s original bumper mounts and frame have not been damaged, then your Hammerhead bumper should only require a simple “bolt-on” installation.
No. The bumper does not add to your towing capabilities.
Both rear bumper designs are the same EXCEPT for the style lights they accommodate. The standard rear bumper will accommodate a 4" round reverse light. The standard rear bumper now includes a FREE LED UPGRADE. The standard rear bumper will also have our HH logo cut out in front of the light. The flush mount rear bumper will accommodate a flush (or flange) mounted LED cube light. The flush mount rear bumper has a square cut out to mount a flush mounted LED cube light from the outside of the bumper seating into the bumper. The flush mount rear bumper does NOT include the lights, but they can be purchased in addition to the bumper.
General Product Compatibility Statement Hammerhead prides itself on the fit and finish of every product we offer. However, due to the vast variety and offerings of the aftermarket community, we cannot guarantee our products will work in conjunction with other brands’ products. Always be sure to test fit our products to verify fitment with another manufacturer’s product before the final installation. Full Brush Guard and Fender Flare Compatibility Statement Hammerhead Armor prides itself on the fit and finish of every fender flare we offer. However, due to the vast variety of offerings and sizes of aftermarket fender flares, we cannot guarantee that the outer tubes of our Full Brush Guard bumpers will allow for oversized fender flares to be installed on a vehicle. Always be sure to test fit our products to verify fitment with another manufacturer’s product before the final installation.

Hammerhead Armor does not offer color match or custom paint on their products. Hammerhead Armor only offers products in our black wrinkle powder coat. Customers can special order their products RAW/UNPAINTED. However, we discourage this option due to the product arriving as a raw, unfinished steel surface that is not prepared to offer a smooth finish. We highly recommend if you plan to have your product custom painted that you consult with your paint service provider prior to purchasing our products. The product will require extensive polishing and prep work prior to paint, especially with a smooth, glossy finish paint, in order to obtain a satisfactory appearance. *Note: Custom or special order products are NOT eligible for cancellation after 24 hours of original order placement and NOT eligible for return. Products that are custom painted after leaving Hammerhead Armor's facility are NOT eligible for return.
Hammerhead Armor's front winch bumpers can have a front license plate mounted to the front face plate of the bumper, where the winch fair lead would be located (if no winch is installed). You may have to drill out holes in your license plate for them to line up with holes in the bumper. If you install a winch, you can purchase an after-market fair lead flip up license plate bracket to mount to the winch fair lead. We do not sell this bracket. Hammerhead Armor's front low profile bumpers do not come ready to mount a front license plate.
