There are some great aftermarket tubular bumpers on Vanagons out there...I don't have any sources right now, but I'm sure they can be had and would be much better that the OEM metal one with the crappy plastic endcaps.


For example...


Hi my name is Jamie ,gowesty is great for that kind of stuff ,when I need things for my 1983 vanagon westfilia I always go to gowesty for that kind of stuff .that's what I would do ,but that's me I do things the right way the first time ,and I've had great luck with them ......Jamie P.s. Call Josh at the shop and ask him. ( 805/528-7888 )
