Anyone have a ranch hand bumper? A teenage girl grazed the corner of my rear bumper last night (then she tried to run, and I had to chase her down, but that's another story). It looks like I can get one of these for cheaper than a factory. Any thoughts?

I have the ranch hand grill guard - good quality. A friend of mine has the front and back bumpers and he has no complaints, either

Are you just going to get the back bumper for your truck or are you going to get the front bumper as well?

You can usually find some rear bumpers for decent prices on E-Bay.

I don't have them, but want them. Are you wanting a front end replacement or a brush guard? If you are thinking front end replacement, then know that they weigh like 350 lbs, which is about 300 lbs heavier than the stock bumper! Anyway, could play havoc on the front end. I love the way they look though! :cheers:

Just thinking about the back now, and only because someone is paying for it. Pricing them out, the stealership says $594.21 to put her back to stock, and the Ranchhand shipped is $440, I bolt it on. I think they look pretty cool, and definitely more durable than stock.

I've been looking at getting a ranch hand grille guard, any ideas on what those run?

The local dealer in town is reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally expensive on stuff.

245# is MUCH better... I really want one, but its a LOT of money for those things (grille guards and bumpers of any kind).

There are a lot of knock off brands here in Texas, too. They aren't any cheaper.

If one is near you, go to a ranch hand outlet location. They sell the guards and bumpers at a much cheeper price than a 3rd party distributor. I got mine at the San Antonio, TX location for like $330. The closest distributor wanted over $440.

Ranch hand grill guards and bumper replacements are all you see on trucks and SUV's in S. Texas. Good stuff, nice people. It's almost sacrileges to run anything else.
