Truck bumpers come alive with BumperShellz - Durable, customizable protective covers feature backlighting to promote your message

NEWCASTLE, Calif. – Every day, pickup truck bumpers take a beating as they are exposed to all types of wear and tear from weather, rocks, road salt and the like. Now, ecoological, a California-based company devoted to creating simple, functional and environmentally responsible solutions to common automotive problems, has developed a durable cover that not only protects the bumper, but can be customized and backlit with any color or design desired.
BumperShellz™ consist of a cover made from a recycled thermoplastic that is formed to fit over the exposed steel truck bumper like a protective shell. The shells are wrapped with a high quality, decorative film and can be easily installed over the existing bumper. The cover allows the truck owner to create a customized look for his or her bumper, with the customer’s choice of carbon fiber, camouflage, black out, or many other colors and patterns.
