    Thats the one im currently running, its a Ranch Hand front replacement. Im going to be selling in a couple months to buy a Fab Four front and rear bumper tho. Its a great bumper, very well built and has stood up to several ppl either side swiping it or backing into it. only a few scratches on it as well.

    If I see a bumper/bush guard I really like, about 90 percent of the time it is Ranch Hand lol. They seem to make a hell of a product

    I was just contemplating how to handle this post since he's not really a vendor but if it helps someone get a good deal.

    Those are just what he's advertising, maybe he's got some good deals back in the corner for your year truck, it's always worth a try.

    Yuck, Enkei. The rest of the truck lacks the follow-through for that to actually look 'mean' (as you put it). IMHO this results in it just looking stupid/half-baked.


    I also can't ever get past winch bumpers that have no winches in them. It just looks dumb and pointless to me. I liken it unto a rear spoler on a rice burner that doesn't generate any actual down-force -- just a dopey-looking, tacked on thing that fails to serve the intended purpose.

    I like the idea of a sticky. There were good posts going on in the other thread. If you need replacement bumpers, the ones that seem popular now are the Ranch Hand bumpers or Frontier bumpers. We posted some good ones in the other thread http://www.builtfortrucks.com/ranch-...-front-bumper/ , http://www.builtfortrucks.com/fronti...-front-bumper/ , etc. Built For Trucks has good sales going on so it's a good place to get replacement bumpers online.

    I'm thinking about getting this one, I like the looks and the Idea of blot on upgrades is pretty sweet. Buy the bumper now and buy the rest as you go, I'm made not money lol and will be doing so saving to get this as is haha
