The need to protect your truck from external impact force in the case of an accident and enhance the looks of the vehicle has led to an increase in the demand for 2003 and 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 rear bumper. With a broad range of designs and accessories to choose from, every truck owner has something to choose from at any moment they need to upgrade or do a replacement. Once you purchase the bumper from the dealer, you are assured of your safety and long term striking appearance of your truck. With warrants attached, you feel safer on your trips at all time. But do you understand the extent the warrants apply? Some warranties are voided while others are compensated based on the damage or the fault noted. Avoid the disappointment that your warranty is void based on one reason or the other.
Understand How The Warrants Work Out
Structural Warranty: This applies to standard conditions and is compensated when the bumper is used correctly. You cannot claim it if your 2005 dodge ram 1500 rear bumper is damaged in an accident, improper use of a winch, improper installation, modifications, or general abuse. This cover is centered on covering the structural manufacturer defects only and will be effected on the day you purchase and is limited to a particular lifetime period. Return to the dealer if you experience a defective component on the bumper or the whole of it for repair or full replacement.
The Finish Warrant: Many bumpers come with quality finishes that usually have a one year cover from the dealer. Also known as the coating warranty, it does not cover damage from chips or stones because it is regarded as a normal wearing out. If your bumper was not installed correctly and is coming into contact with other parts on the truck leading to friction, or the coating is coming off due to the vehicle vibration, it is not covered. Exposure to the natural UV lights is not part of the warrant too.
The only way to maintain your warranty is to care and maintain the 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 rear bumper while in the regular use. You need thorough cleaning at least twice a month. If you in an area with many chemicals and salty elements, consider thorough weekly washing to prevent rusting. Ensure that you allow it dry completely to avoid the discoloring from the stagnant water. Take caution not to void your 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 rear bumper after a few months of installation.
