    Default Ranch Hand Front Bumper [Expired Topic]

    I found a Ranch Hand front bumper on Craiglist this week that will fit my Dad's 94 suburban. He has been wanting a grill guard and a hitch reciever up front. This bumper has both. It is the heavy duty version and the previous owner had the whole thing Rhino lined. This puppy is HEAVY. It probably weight 300+ pounds. I am going to try to install it this weekend. Anyone wanna come help lift?

    Sounds like a good project! Go into downtown Dallas and get some day laborers and have them do the heavy lifting for you.

    I can ice down some beer and probably have 3 neighbors there to help me within minutes. I also have an engine hoist if it comes down to that, but it shouldn't be too bad with a jack and a couple of guys.

    Got'er Done!! Me and one of my neighbors ("Grumpy") installed the bumper Saturday morning. It wasn't too bad, and only took about an hour start to finish.

    Here is a lousy picture of the outcome.

    Yes. He got the name from some of the neighborhood kids and it just stuck with the rest of us too.
