Video Transcript for Review of Westin Bumper - Diamond Step Bumper with Installation Kit - 73000-97800

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at this Westin Fey Chrome Plated Steel Diamond Step Rear Bumper with the custom installation kit. Now, this is a custom fit part, it is designed to fit the 1987 to 1996 Dodge Dakota trucks, and on the custom fit part like this, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use the fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show you if this will work for your application. Now, this is a replacement rear bumper, creates a nice, sturdy step, so that you can access your truck bed with ease, and this does match the factory specifications to fit your vehicle styling, so it adds both utility and rugged good looks to your vehicle. As you can see, it has a nice chrome plating on it, it adds brilliant shine and resist corrosion. And I mentioned the diamond tread step surface, if you look at the very top of the bumper, the whole length of it has this nice diamond tread surface to it, and that'll provide traction when you're getting into an out of your truck bed.

If you noticed, also down here, it has the three integrated ball holes that make towing very easy, all you have to do is just add a hitch ball. Now, the hitch balls are not included, we do sell those separately on our website. The hitch ball you'll usually put right in the center hole here, the diameter of the hole is 3/4 of an inch, so you do wanna make sure when you get a hitch ball that the shank diameter's 3/4 of an inch. If you noticed the two holes on each side, you can usually use those for the safety chain hookups. Now, this is a cold rolled steel, it's very strong and sturdy.

Also, if you noticed, it does include the license plate lights, which will wire into your running lights. Basically, these would just insert right into those openings, use the clips to hold it into place. Here's your wiring harness with the bulbs, put those in there, and then you use these connectors to connect it to your running lights. Now, there's also, if you noticed, there's the holes right up here, there's two square holes, that'll take these plastic inserts that are included with the screws, so you'll be able to attach your license plate to the bumper. Now, to install this, it is a pretty quick and easy bolt-on installation, there's no drilling required, you get these custom brackets and the hardware that allow you to bolt this to your vehicle.

Few specs on this, the towing capacity is 3,500 pounds, tongue capacity of 350 pounds, and that is stamped on the bumper. And last thing I wanna do is just give you the measurements on this. The overall length from one end to the other is 64 3/4 inches long, the width of the bumper, seven inches wide, total height, 6 1/2 inches tall. But that should do it for the review on the Westin Fey Chrome Plated Steel Diamond Step Rear Bumper with the custom installation kit..

The bumper came with a mount and light kit. All parts lined up and fit correctly. No drilling required. It looks good on my truck. I recommend the Westin company and Etrailer. Teresa, the rep, was professional and followed thru the entire process. I remember the days when a company cared about customer service and having a quality product. Etrailer is that company. Thanks. J.S.

Review from a similar Diamondstep in Bumper


The new bumper arrived yesterday (very fast). The box was unfortunately very damaged and had been taped. I have attached pics of how it arrived.

I opened everything and amazingly all the parts are here.

The bumper did sustain a minor scratch but is not damaged or twisted.

I have not try to install this yet so with the minor damage shown how should I proceed?


Comments
I hate to hear that the bumper arrived damaged. Customer Service will reach out to you.

Review from a similar Diamondstep in Bumper


Bumper arrived on time. Great quality and look. Cant wait to install it on my rebuild.
Only reason for 4 stars as that the bumper is actually 2 pieces, not 1. There is a chrome "bumper" for the lights ,steps and license plate but where the tow hitch ball is, it is made of black steel. My only issue is that the pieces are held together by a clear caulk. Seems odd to have 2 metal parts joined by caulk, not bolts or welded.
Deapite the caulk, it is a great bumper and Im satisfied.


Comments
While the bumper is high quality and very well made, I bought it before we were ready to put it on the truck. Imagine my surprise when we discovered that it wasnt even for my truck. The bumper looked right but it was short by about a foot on both sides. I tried to reach out to see if I could return the bumper anyway but in vain. The product is nice but I have no use for it and its the wrong one. Extremely disappointing.

I am very impressed with this bumper. I bought it as a replacement for my 77 Ford F150. I've been restoring this truck since 2006, and the original bumper was too far gone to save. I was trying to match the original as closely as possible and this one was perfect.

It came with everything needed, right down to the license plate lights and bulbs. It was easy to install with the supplied directions and it looks great on the truck! Good price, free shipping, and very good quality. Five stars all day long.

1997 Ford F-350 XL 4x4 - Great bumper and excellent customer service from etrailer. My truck has the 37" width frame so you have to flip the mounting brackets so they are narrower to the bumper. Everything bolts directly on, no drilling.

Review from a similar Diamondstep in Bumper


finally got chance to install bumper on truck. the installation was rather simple a little akward for 1 person to do but I was able to install it fairly easily. This bumper is a great fit on my truck. The only fault I found was my truck had factory reciever hitch, so had to remove a bracket holding hitch to install bumper otherwise the bumper fit nicely. I would recommend this product to others. Attached are some before and after pics.

Review from a similar Diamondstep in Bumper


Fitment is great and it was fairly simple to install. The hardest part was probably removing the old bumper which was pretty rusty. It definitely doesn't look like the factory bumper which I was a little worried about until I got it installed and saw it on the truck. It looks way better than the factory bumper. Excellent product, especially for what I think is a very reasonable cost. Highly recommended!!

Easy to install, strong and looks great. Had some shipping issues but their exeptional customer service took care of it.

Review from a similar Diamondstep in Bumper


The quality is very good for the price! The only thing that need to be corrected are, the instructions show mounting the mounting brackets opposite of how they actually mount and bolt to the bumper. The higher hole goes to the inside not the outside. The only other thing that needs changed, is the length of 2 of the standard bolts in the kit. 2 of them are very hard to get the thread started with both a flat and lock washer. Other than that, this is a nice product at a nice price point




by:

Review from a similar Diamondstep in Bumper


Bumper installed easily and looks great. Frame bracket holes lined up perfectly, and the bumper lined up on the brackets with very little effort. It took me about 1 hour to remove the old bumper and install the new bumper. Recommend having an assistant to at least help hold the bumper while lining the bolts up. It is exactly what I expected. The safety chain holes are a bit further from the edge than my old bumper, but I picked up two shackles and that issue was resolved.

Thanks for contacting me, I have not had an issue with the bumper and it has stood up very well.

Good quality and all the right parts. I had to modify it a little in order to have a port to lower the spare tire on the truck

Review from a similar Diamondstep in Bumper


This is a 2009 replacement bumper for my E350 van. Excellent construction and fit. One year later, after I put multiple coats of rust proofing and paint on it, it has weathered great and stood up to my work environment. If you want a superb bumper, buy one of these. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Great!!! Worth every damn penny!!!

Not happy at all. It does not fit my vehicle, its 65 in wide, I needed 90 inches wide. etrailer does not have product measurements on website, and does not guarantee fit. Waste a time, and im out $XX for shipping- thats not right, will never buy from this company again.

My Westin Diamondstep Replacement Bumper was installed almost flawlessly by a good friend. It arrived in perfect condition, and even had a replacement license plate light kit included that I wasn't aware of. As you can see from the photo, my new Westin Diamondstep Replacement Bumper looks great installed on my 1999 Dodge Dakota. If you are looking to replace your rusted out rear bumper, the Westin Diamondstep Replacement Bumper is a good choice.

Thank you, etrailer.com! This Diamondstep Rear Bumper with Custom Installation Kit is a perfect fit for my 1997 Nissan pickup! It is high quality and looks great!

Review from a similar Diamondstep in Bumper


Great product, especially for the price. Instructions and videos were good also. the only issue I had was the holes didnt line up perfectly on the frame, even though I had the exact year make and model of truck that the bumper was for. I had to drill one hole in each side of the frame to get a third bolt in (the rear bolt in the picture) and strengthen in up a bit. Id highly recommend this product and etrailer as well. Good experience!!!

I recently bought a bumper for my Dodge pickup from Etrailer. The product is everything they said it would be. The installation was quite simple and the quality is 10 out of 10. I found the personnel extremely helpful and would recommend their products to everyone. The bumper fit perfect as you can see by the pictures. Again everything is a 10 out of 10. Thanks Bob

Haven't had a chance to put in on yet, but am very impressed everything we need for installation came with the bumper. This is the last step on finishing our project truck so we're excited to get it done.

I'm sure it was shipped in perfect condition. The box arrived yesterday, and it was pretty beat up (the box). Upon opening it, I discovered a couple of nicks and one dent. I don't fault etrailer for that. I believe it was roughly handled.

Review from a similar Diamondstep in Bumper


I was looking for a direct replacement rear bumper for 86 Ramcharger. This is a generic one size fits all. It does not fit. The Ramcharger requires 6 bolt holes. This one has only four. After seeing this I have not tried to mount, so I do not know if the other brackets will bolt up. Further, this bumper is stamped from very thin metal. I am very disappointed.
