The new Owl Pismo bumper is a beautiful evolution of the Sprinter bumper. Compact, clean, and sleek while retaining an aggressive but factory look.

Manufactured of rugged steel, this bumper allows the mounting of a 12,000 lbs winch and adds dual recovery points and a hitch mount. 

Designed in partnership with one of the industry's largest bumper manufacturers means you can rest assured the quality and longevity are up to the toughest challenges. This bumper is bulletproof and you know Owl has put it to the test (breaking gear is our pastime!)

Can we also talk about how good it looks? Blending effortlessly into the lines of the Sprinter while adding just the right amount of toughness with a 1.875" bull bar. The Pismo protrudes only a few inches from the factory plastic bumper which gives it a more subtle look. 



The Pismo relocates both the radar sensor and the parking sensors and both should function like factory. Importantly, the radar sensor is mounted within, not above, the bumper as it is on other bumpers. The lower mounting keeps the sensor much closer to the factory height to ensure proper function. 


For those wanting to take their van off the beaten path, it is critical you have solid recovery points and a winch. As they say, prepare to self-rescue. Whether it is pulling yourself out of a sticky situation, or helping a stranded vehicle, once you have a winch, you won't know how you managed without one.

Canceled Orders

We want all customers to be happy with their purchases but in the event of a canceled order, we cannot recoup the fees charged to us by the credit card companies. When an order is placed, the credit card company takes a percentage of the sale, typically 5%-6% This is money that DOES NOT go to us and we do not get this charge given back to us when we refund an order.

Although you may not have noticed, it is industry standard for larger dollar items to have a "restocking fee" of 15% or more. We do our best to charge exactly what we get charged by the credit card company when you cancel an order. In the event of a canceled order, the 5%-6% that the credit card company charges us cannot be refunded. Please make note of this before you order.
