Pro-gard HD Push Bumpers

The addition of a Pro-gard Push Bumper allows for safe and easy removal of just such stranded vehicles. Our Push Bumpers are designed with wear and tear in mind. The rugged steel design allows officers to softly push stranded vehicles to safety without fear of compromising the bumper structure or vehicle fascia.

Highly visible, front scene lighting is high on the mind of officers when they are working an accident scene or traffic stop. Our Push Bumpers offer the perfect platform for agencies to  secure this much desired, driver eye-level lighting to their vehicles quickly and easily.

  • Improved rugged steel construction ensures a longer, more durable life for the bumper
  • Solid weld frame construction cuts down on installation time
  • Pre-cut holes and slots in the bumper allow for mounting popular auxiliary lighting and speakers
