Rear Bumper Guards For Parallel Parking
We have all experienced drivers who cannot park if their lives depended on it…they bump their way into parking spaces with careless disregard for other peoples cars. These drivers are called “Touch Parkers” because they use your car as a guide. “Inconsiderate”…these are drivers who have old, beat up cars and could care less about adding a few more scars to the bumpers. Front and rear car bumper protectors are a great way to protect your parked vehicle from inconsiderate idiots.
Grille guards are a serious-looking pickup truck accessory. Wrapping tubular steel around the front end can transform the appearance of a pickup from worksite hauler to safari-ready off-roader. You might be on the fence when it comes to buying a grille guard, especially if you don't intend to take your truck on any forest trails. However, even if your truck only ever sees highways and city streets, a grille guard is still a good investment when it comes to protecting your vehicle and the safety of you and your passengers. Let's look at some of the more urban dangers which a grille guard can help your truck deal with.
1) Shopping carts - It seems that fewer and fewer people are taking the time to return their shopping carts to the designated holding pens after they are done loading their groceries into the car. There's nothing more frustrating than to come out of a store and discovered that the wind has pushed a shopping cart directly into the front end of your truck, smashing a headlight or turn signal. A grille guard can stop that cart before it gets close enough to do any damage.
2) Stop and go traffic - How many times has this happened to you - you are caught in bumper to bumper traffic on the way home from work, and someone cuts you off, causing you to slam on the brakes a few seconds too late? Since these drivers cut in at an angle, chances are that your headlights and sidelights take the brunt of this kind of impact. A grille guard can help you to turn the tables and protect your pickup from other people's carelessness.. ,
3) Touch parkers - We've all seen drivers who look like they skipped class the day they were supposed to learn how to park. It's heartbreaking to come back to your pickup and find that someone has used the front of your truck in place of their rear view mirror when it came time to reverse their car into a parking spot. A grille guard is a great way to keep those types of drivers at a safe distance from your pickup's bumper and bodywork.
