AEV Bison Rear Bumper and Fender Flares Announced :: Overland News

Press Release: 1 July, 2019

 

Rear Bumper

AEV’s ZR2 Bison Rear Bumper is now available for all 2015+ Chevy Colorado trucks! The ZR2 Bison’s Rear Bumper is not just for good looks, it is designed to withstand all the rigors of off-road use and overland travel. Because the ZR2 Bison was primarily developed out on the trail, the Rear Bumper maximizes departure angle and offers integrated tubular steel corner protection for the bed. To assist with vehicle recovery heavy duty cast aluminum recovery points were included for easy rigging of ¾” anchor shackles. The factory step pad is retained and all trailer hitch, license plate lights, trailer plug and spare tire winch access locations stay the same. The ZR2 Bison Rear Bumper also has provisions for two 3” square LED reverse lights to be mounted cleanly behind the bumper for added visibility when backing-up in the dark (mounting kit sold separately).
The AEV ZR2 Bison Rear Bumper is E-coated and powder coated for maximum corrosion resistance and is proudly manufactured in the USA. aev-conversions.com/product/zr2-bison-rear-bumper

Fender Flares

AEV’s ZR2 Bison Fender Flares are now available for the 2015+ Chevy Colorado. These injection molded Fender Flares were designed specifically for the ZR2 Bison’s appearance package, so they are recommended to be used in conjunction with our Bison Front Bumper. However, they can also be used with the ZR2’s factory bumper (please see pics in the FAQ).

These Fender Flares feature an OE acid-grained texture and are the same width as the factory ZR2 Fender Flares, but sit much higher on the body, giving your truck a much more aggressive appearance. Drilling is required for installation but an easy to use template is provided for added convenience.

Since these trucks have been growing in popularity as a viable vehicle platform for overland travel, AEV’s ZR2 Fender Flares are sold separately in sets of two, so custom builders can order just the front set. aev-conversions.com/product/colorado-fender-flares

  • OE Fender Flares from the 2019+ ZR2 Bison
  • Fits 2015+ Chevy Colorado  –  AEV Bison Front Bumper recommended!
