Iron Cross HD Front Bumper Push Bar
A Heavy Duty American Made Bumper with Integrated Push Bar
When you’re on a quest for the perfect front bumper but it has to be 100% made in America, there are few options out there for you to choose from. And one of the best American made ones, a company that’s made a name for itself concerning quality and durability, is Iron Cross Automotive. Founded in the mid ‘80’s, Iron Cross Automotive prides themselves on being one of the few 100% American made manufacturers of both aftermarket and Original Equipment products for trucks and Jeeps. And their products show just how much hard work and sweat goes into making each and every bumper and running board. They support charitable organizations like Folds of Honor Foundation, which provides scholarships to the children of disabled vets and those who were killed in the line of duty. So basically we are talking about the most American company ever, and they make kickass bumpers too. Speaking of, this HD Front Bumper with an Integrated Push Bar is one of those great American made products. It is constructed of 10 gauge steel that as been laser cut by a state of the art CNC laser machine. The Push Bar is 2 inch mandrel bent steel tube that protrudes ahead of your grille and over the top of the bumper, providing extra protection and an aggressive look. This bumper is winch compatible, accepting up to a 12,000 lb capacity winch. We recommend a Warn VR Series 12-S, but you can pick out your own from our Winch page above under Exterior / Winch and Tow Ropes. This Iron Cross Heavy Duty Bumper also features 2 cutouts for 4” Round Fog Lights, which are also sold separately. Most any 4” round should do the job, but Rigid has some nice options, as does Diode Dynamics, with their Luxeon LED Fog Lamps. And you can also get some from Iron Cross that are designed to work with their bumpers exactly. Once you’ve got your accessories picked out, or if you just want to start with the bumper, you’ll be ready to order this bad boy. Note that not only is this made from heavy duty steel, but the Iron Cross HD Front Bumper with Push Bar is also finished with a textured matte black powder coat for added durability and rust resistance. And the whole package again is made right here in the States, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Let’s get into all the details on this heavy duty bumper.

Iron Cross HD Front Bumper with Integrated Push Bar
When it comes to original equipment quality, unfortunately, stock accessories have been getting a bit worse over the years. You can’t even blame the Original Equipment Manufacturers either. They are cutting weight to try to met stringent EPA regulations on fuel economy. So a lot of stock parts have had to lose weight again and again. Whether you’re looking at the frame or your truck bed, the cab or the bumpers, these formerly heavy duty steel parts have gradually been replaced with lighter weight components. In some cases, this might not be that big of a deal. Please don’t get me started on the whole aluminum truck bed argument.
But the replacement of old school steel bumpers with light weight aluminum and plastic or even carbon fiber ones is certainly an odd choice.
While modern bumpers have been engineered to absorb damage well and distribute it to your frame, the truth is there are some parts on your truck that should never have been swapped out for plastic parts. And your bumpers are likely two of them.
So along came Iron Cross--an honestly all American company that makes all their products right here in the States still. And they asked a valuable question: why don’t we have heavy duty steel bumpers again?
And why don’t we make them right here in the US of A?
And Iron Cross Automotive was born.
Today, 30 plus years later, they are still making exceptional products from heavy duty steel, just like we used to have stock only better. They’ve iterated and innovated until they ended up with a superior product: a heavy duty steel bumper with an integrated push bar--a bumper sure to protect your truck and anyone riding in it way better than any stock piece of plastic ever could.
And how did they do it? They used precision laser CNC machines and American welders to created an HD bumper designed to fit your truck.
And just like your stock bumper absorbs impact damage, this strong bumper does too.
Only here’s a Pro Tip: steel can absorb much more of a hit than plastic or aluminum. Who knew?!
For seriously though, should the unfortunate happen, the first thing to impact is likely to be that heavy duty steel push bar. As that bar starts to give, it absorbs loads of damage. Then the main bumper gets impacted, but by now whatever is hitting you is hitting slower than before and with less force behind it because the push bar got there first.
Next the all steel bumper takes the brunt of the impact, and it still redirects the damage down and away from your cab and into your frame.
At the end of the day, I’d definitely rather have a piece of American steel between me and anyone else on the road than plastic or aluminum.
And even if you aren’t all about safety, here’s the second greatest thing about this bumper: it looks super bad ass! Yup.
If you like the rugged look of a push bar and an all metal bumper that’s coated in matte black powder coat, there’s nothing not to like here. Add in that sweet Iron Cross logo cutout, a winch mount, and a couple fog lights, and you’ve got one of the most aggressive looking front bumpers around.
