The crew over at RPM RC Products have set their sights on a new vehicle to upgrade, the Team Durango DESC410 series of trucks. The first product they’ve worked up for the very popular Durango 4wd SCT is a Front Bumper/Skid Plate.
To start off with, RPM made their bumper wider than stock to protect more front end parts like the a-arms and hinge pins. Next they made the skid plate 20% thicker than stock, yet made it only reduce ground clearance by 1mm. RPM also removed the stock bumper support ring, ensuring that crash energy is not transferred to the diff housing, but to the chassis where it belongs. Finally, RPM designed the bumper to accept RPM light buckets for those of you looking for that trick scale look.
Part number for the RPM Durango front bumper is #73682, retail price is $14, and they should hit hobby shops in about 2 weeks. For more information, HERE is the direct link to the bumper on the official RPM website.
