EAU CLAIRE, Wis. – Luverne Truck Equipment has released a heavy-duty replacement truck bumper: the Journeyman HD. This American-made bumper features a one-piece construction, a dual-layer finish and a tested 30K straight-line pull rating.
The Journeyman is a bumper and brush guard combination. It is built from 10-gauge steel and schedule-40 pipe, welded together into a one-piece design. This not only adds maximum strength to the front end of the truck but also provides a solid foundation for the welded 2-inch by 2-inch receiver tube.
The standard 2-inch receiver tube has been tested at Luverne’s Detroit engineering facility to ensure safety and a dependable straight-line pull rating of 30,000 pounds. With the right tow hook, ball mount or other hitch-mounted accessory installed, the Journeyman makes any big truck ready to tackle big jobs.
Another critical feature of the Journeyman is its dual-layer finish. The bottom layer is a rust-resistant zinc primer to protect the steel frame. The top layer is a highly durable textured black powder coat that maximizes rust protection and easily resists scratching and chipping. The Journeyman is also equipped with protective rubber facings on the vertical uprights – a feature that competitor models do not offer.
The replacement bumper also features a punched steel screen and the Luverne signature logo reveal. The steel screen keeps sticks, stones and other road debris out of the truck’s grille, and it can be removed on certain models, if necessary, to avoid interference with forward-facing cameras or sensors. The signature vehicle logo reveal adds even more protection for the grille and shows off the vehicle’s emblem with pride.
All Journeyman HD replacement bumpers are made in a vehicle-specific design for no drilling necessary. They are currently available for the Ford Super Duty F250, F350, F450 and F550 with more vehicle applications coming soon. A two-pack version is available to reduce shipping costs and keep prices lower for dealers and their customers.
