The AERO CLAD bumper from Hendrickson Bumper and Trim is designed for 2003 and newer Volvo VNL on-highway trucks. Offered as part of an optional factory-installed metal bumper package on VNL trucks, the AERO CLAD VNL also is available for retrofits exclusively through Volvo and Mack dealers. According to the company, the bumper maximizes style, durability, ground clearance, and weight savings. With its polished stainless steel finish, the AERO CLAD bumper is resistant against weather and corrosion. All Hendrickson AERO CLAD bumpers come standard with a five-year limited warranty against corrosion. Made by bonding high-strength, corrosion-resistant stainless steel to lightweight aluminum and polishing to a bright mirror finish, AERO CLAD bumpers offer an environmentally friendly alternative to chrome plating.
