When reviewing most new 4X4s that come on the market, one of the key comments we always make is “would prefer if that plastic bumper was metal” and “front towing points would’ve been good”. Because when off-road, your bumper is the first point of contact for everything, expected or not, and more times than not it’s where you have to get your mate to drag you out by. Thankfully the team at Drivetech 4×4 have released their new Rival bumpers to suit a range of 4X4s including HiLux, Navara (coming soon) and the VW Amarok. Constructed of alloy, the bumpers provide a strong alternative to your truck’s factory front end. With a straight swap-over from the factory bumper with towing and high lift jack slots, the Rival bumper proves to be a tempting choice for those in the market, as long as the only colour you want is black.
