This is an optional RPM Wide Front Bumper, and is intended for use with the Traxxas Stampede 4x4. The Traxxas Stampede 4x4 is a cool truck with lots of nice features built in, but it’s missing one critical piece – some serious front-end protection. Not anymore! The RPM Wide Front Bumper for the Traxxas Stampede 4x4 is designed to fill that void. RPM's bumper uses the same design principles and styling as those found on the 2wd Stampede Front Bumper, the most popular front bumper RPM has ever produced. Why is it so popular? Because it works!
The RPM Wide Front Bumper is designed to protrude out in front of the truck far enough to be the first contact point during a frontal collision, yet is back far enough not to impede normal driving. When the inevitable front-end impact occurs, the RPM bumper will take the brunt of the force, absorbing that impact energy by deforming under the pressure, and then when the crash concludes, the bumper will return to its original shape, ready for action once again. With an RPM Wide Front Bumper installed, more fragile chassis and front differential components have a much better survival rate under even the roughest bash sessions.
RPM Wide Front Bumpers for the Traxxas Stampede 4x4 are direct replacements for the stock parts. Simply remove the stock front skid plate, replace it with the RPM version and you're ready to go. It even incorporates the mounting points for the stock upper bumper, if you wish to keep it in place.
