STOP TAILGATERS AND TEXTING DRIVERS ON CONTACT! Crash Attenuator - Sparebumper Receiver Hitch Step

Dear Jeff: I was taking my now 4 month old son and our dog for a ride this afternoon when I was rear ended by a car going 30 miles per hour. I barely felt the impact and neither my son (he was checked out at the hospital to make sure) or dog seemed to be impacted by the collision.

When I examined my truck, there was not even a scratch on the bumper. I wanted to thank you for the quality of the product and the fact that it did what was advertised. Sincerely, Dr. Timmothy Brusseau, Brockport, NY

Engineered To Protect The Occupants!

The rear end collision is the most frequent vehicle accident and tailgating and texting are the top 2 reasons you’ll end up in one. The results of that stupidity for you are vehicle damage, whiplash, higher insurance rates and a Car Fax report devaluing your vehicle – and no matter what you do, you cannot stop them.

If you have a vehicle equipped with a receiver hitch you already know how strong it is and it will prevent some of your vehicle damage in a rear end collision…But a receiver hitch alone can only protect your vehicle: here’s why...

Why other receiver hitch products cannot protect your family…

Other receiver hitch steps that can not protect your family

All receiver hitch products (like the ones shown here) were built for a specific purpose like carrying, stepping, hauling, towing, recovery, etc.

NONE Were Engineered for Occupant Protection!


The Whiplash Risk No One Wants To Tell You About…

Receiver hitches alone – without anything in them – increase rigidity. Rigidity influences the “crash pulse” in a rear end collision. Less crush distance and a “stiff” pulse will cause greater acceleration to the head and neck…up to 5 times the speed of the “bullet” vehicle.

When passenger cars rear end your higher riding pickup truck or SUV they dont hit your bumper – they hit your receiver hitch. That transfers all the crash energy directly to the frame and the occupants increasing your risk of whiplash by 22% because theres NO give.

Consequently anything else you pin into your receiver hitch that is not energy absorbing (like the products above) will simply move this whiplash problem outward. The danger – women and children are already 3 times more likely to get injured from whiplash then men because their necks are not as strong. Even impacts as little as 3 mph put your wife and kids at risk.

Worse Yet – The Insurance Company Adding Insult To Injury…

Receiver hitches prevent damage…and although you may think that’s a good thing your biggest problem arises when someone in your vehicle gets injured.  The first question their insurance company will ask you after looking at your vehicle is “How could you possibly have been injured – theres no damage to the rear of your vehicle?”  Now you’ll need an attorney  You have a vehicle which shows no damage and an insurance company that wont pay for injuries because they think your lying.  You could be waiting 3 years or more for compensation – if you win that is…which is why we have an attorneys only page on this site.

The SECRET To Fixing The Problem…

Soften The “Crash Pulse”.  When our impact attenuators are hit, they absorb crash energy and soften the crash pulse to reduce the risk of whiplash and vehicle damage.  An impact attenuator gradually decelerates the “bullet” vehicle to protect the frame of the vehicle and the occupants from injury.  But dont take our word for it.  Read the 60+ “crash” testimonials below. NOTE:  In a rear end collision, 6 out of 10 will be DIRECT HITS and 3 out of 10 will be at least 2/3 overlap.  THATS WHY YOU DONT NEED A MONSTER REAR BUMPER.

HERE’S WHAT SUPERBUMPER OWNERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THEIR NEW SHOCK ABSORBING RECEIVER HITCH STEP

Kim Ostenberg - Happy Superbumper CUstomer - The only Shock Absorbing Receiver Hitch Step

“Peace Of Mind” Everyday You Drive!

“I couldn’t be happier with this bumper! I was in a bad car accident a year ago and this gives me such peace of mind. I’ve noticed drivers keeping their distance!” ~ Kim Ostenberg, FL

I love it, it was exactly what I needed…

“Jeff was awesome to deal with. He was quick to deliver my bumper. I love it, it was exactly what I needed.. I have a 2014 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner and I feel I am much more protected. I was referred to him, from a friend and I would totally recommend him again…His products are very well made and sturdy. Thank you again. Have a blessed day.”

Nancy Posey

Beautifully manufactured… Very heavy duty and plenty strong…

“Love the product!  Fits perfectly on my 2011 Yukon. Perfect shape to match the bumper cut out for tow hitch area. Beautifully manufactured… Very heavy duty and plenty strong…  I’ve told about 10 people so far about your great product and suggested it to family members for their SUVs.  I’ll shoot you some pictures ASAP. Thanks!”

FACT:  80% Of All Rear End Collisions Are Caused By Distracted Drivers.

“Hey Jeff, Yesterday I pulled the ‘Sparebumper’ off the Ridgeline – I wanted to hit it with a fresh coat of paint. That bumper has taken so many hits for me – mostly low speed parallel parking rubs, and it bears its scars proudly until I re-spray it from time to time and it turns up like new!

About 3 months ago I was rear-ended (it was low speed) by an old lady in a monstrous Cadillac sedan. No damage to me at all – it was nice to not worry about anything. Who knows what my bumper would have looked like without my Sparebumper though…It’s paid for itself so many times.

Great product – just thought I would drop you a line to tell you being I recently had it off for some well-deserved maintenance!” ~ Rick

67 More Reasons Auto Body Shop “Hate Our Guts”

Jeff: I just want to say thanks to an outstanding product!

I got this Sparebumper since I travel with working dogs quite often; I thought it could be additional protection to my truck and dogs. Well, about 0830 the 10th of September, I was traveling around 25MPH approaching a red light, when from behind me a Toyota Camry hit me (Ram 1500) traveling in excess of 45MPH.

Other than my coffee being spilled and the damage to the spare bumper, I for one wasn’t hurt at all and not a scratch on the truck! What was interesting, there was very little damage to the other car.

This guy was lighting a cigarette and texting when he looked up hit me immediately! Again, thank you for your product; it is a very valuable piece of equipment! Mr. Jody B. Butler – Raeford, NC

Jeff: “Believe it or not, my wife was rear ended in her college parking lot three days after the installation!!!  It worked like a charm.  The guy that hit her wanted to know where she got it because he didn’t cause any damage to her car with the Superbumper installed.”  Fred and Jill Moss

FACT: When You’re Hit From The Rear, The Occupants In Your Vehicle Accelerate To 2.5 Times That Of The Bullet Vehicle. A 10 mph Impact Sends YOU Forward At 25 MPH…

From the Chevy Trail Blazer and GMC Envoy Forum

“Ok…so check this out. Yesterday I was driving by a local high school, which happened to be getting out, and I was stopped at a light in front of it and I got rear ended by some high school 16 year old…but I was fine because I had one of these things in my trailer hitch – It’s called a Superbumper, well actually I have the Sparebumper which absorbed all the impact from the car that hit.

A while back I was looking for a hitch step, since I probably won’t ever tow anything with my TB (Trail Blazer), and I thought this thing was a good idea so I got it. Thank god the kid that hit me was fine, the thing dented his front though, and of course my car was completely fine…so yeah GET ONE! You never know. And for the guys that do a lot of towing they have a model that has a ball hitch on it.”

This is probably going to sound like the guy is paying me to say this but I swear by the thing now! Brent Salazar

FACT: The Rear End Collision Accounts For 32.1% Of All Fleet Injuries

From the Chevy Trail Blazer and GMC Envoy Forum

Hi Jeff, After having my E350 washed, I noticed a considerably large (3 inch tall & 4 inch long) blue paint streak on my Superbumper. This probably happened when someone in a blue vehicle was trying to park or exit. I’m certainly glad that I had installed the Superbumper since it most likely saved both my electrical trailer connection as well as some of my back-up sensors in the rear bumper. You have a great product.

Hi Jeff – Yesterday somebody rear ended me while I was stopped.

No damage to the (Honda) Ridgeline, but the Superbumper is ruined. I certainly would have had significant damage to the rear bumper otherwise. I’d say she was going at least 10 mph because there were no sounds of last minute braking and she told me that she was “watching the rain in the distance.” In reality, I would not be surprised if she was pushing 20 mph.

The other driver had to call for a tow with front bumper damage and a busted radiator and oil cooler – shame on him. Graham Blake, Brooklyn, NY

Jeff, I previously purchased a Bumper Shield for my 2008 Yukon . Last winter, I had to stop abruptly on an icy freeway and the guy behind me was not able to stop. End result: One tiny scratch on my Bumper Shield while his vehicle had to be towed away with damage to both fenders; hood, radiator, and bumper.

FACT: On Average, Your Insurance Will Rise 40% If You Make A Claim.

Last week my wife was in a supermarket parking lot in Pahrump, NV, stationary, waiting for a car ahead to pull out of a parking space, in our ’07 Dodge Ram 3500 with Superbumper.

A teenaged female cell phone operator, who was incidentally behind the wheel of a late-model Honda Civic, failed to see the large red truck in front of her and impaled the left headlight assembly on the Superbumper at a very low speed. Consequences? Some of the dust knocked off the Superbumper, No scratches in the chrome.

For her? Loss of driving privileges, loss of income, loss of savings (paying for a new headlight), and death (as in “My daddy’s going to KILL me!). The collision would certainly have at least scratched or dented the Dodge rear bumper had it not been for the Superbumper. Thanks! Ken Smith

FACT: 80% Of All Bumper Scratches Occur During Parking.

Jeff – A SECOND product testimonial.

Yesterday my wife was loading groceries into our Dodge Ram 3500 (with Superbumper) in a Costco parking lot in Las Vegas, when an idiot female, using a cell phone, made a direct hit on the Superbumper with her PT Cruiser.

The only injury was to the little car, which had to be towed away. Not even a scratch on the bumper. At least one of the highly entertained onlookers plans to get a Superbumper for his pickup. Ken Smith

FACT: 56% Of All Rear End Collisions Are DIRECT HITS!

There are two scratches on my Superbumper, one received just this week when a kid in a Corolla didn’t hit his brakes as fully as he should have. The tap was actually kinda minor, and my truck has zero damage, but his front bumper, license plate, and some of his grille incurred a good whack.

This thing paid for itself in that instance. Axxkicker – F150 Forum

FACT: After Your Rear End Collision You’ll Spend: 35 Minutes At The Scene Filling Out Reports; 78 Minutes Filling Out Reports After The Scene; 4 Hours Getting Repair Estimates: The Average Time Without Your Vehicle – 2 Days.

Dear Mr. Mohr, I’m writing this testimonial as to the quality of your product.
One day, on the way back from the Ridgewood , NJ inspection station, I came to a stop sign on the intersecting main street. When I came to a stop in my Ford Excursion, I felt a BIG BANG on the back of my truck. To my surprise, someone ran up to my window and started screaming at me that I had stopped too suddenly.

Fortunately the car behind this person was an on duty Ridgewood policeman. The lady tried to tell the policeman that I came to a complete stop at the stop sign and she was too far from the break pedal – as it was her husband’s car. The policeman advised her that it was her responsibility to adjust the seat before driving off in the car from home.

When I went to the rear of my truck to check the damage with the policeman, I only observed a tiny nick on the ball of the SUPERBUMPER. Your product saved my vehicle extensive damage! Unlike the Lexus which had to be towed home.

Your product is superior and extremely good looking. Good luck in the continued sale of your excellent product. Yours sincerely, Richard Binder, Wheeling, IL
