Truck Hood Pivot Bar


An OEM truck builder came to us with an impossible-sounding challenge. They needed a device that could support the weight of a heavy truck's hood and fenders when opened or closed, pivot without wear, endure outside elements, and be affordable, too.


Always up for a challenge, Midwest Rubber engineers worked with different materials and processes until they achieved a final product to suit the client's needs. The final polyurethane truck hood pivot bar was created with our reaction injection molding process. Today these pivot bars are used in thousands of heavy duty trucks.
