I know there have been a couple of threads regarding aftermarket bumpers and grilles that will actually stand up against things other than brush..
well what i researched today helps me and well a few others i think so i thought i would share:
Setina makes a PB400 -
I wanted more info so i contacted Setina:
"I have a 2003 Ford Ranger. Do you guys offer the PB400 for my truck? Will the PB400 allow me to push a vehicle at low speeds? How well does the PB400 Protect from Deer/Wildlife? How strong is the PB400 and the brakcets? Does it mount to the frame and gain its durability from the frame?
Just a few questions I figured I would before purchasing the product.
There reply sold me:
"We make pb400ís for the 03 Ranger, pushing vehicles off of roadways are what they were designed for. As far as the wildlife, I have no idea, I suppose it would all depend on what type of wildlife, Iím sure a deer, elk or moose would do considerable damage to other parts of your vehicle if it was the bumper that it came in contact with first.
They do mount to the frame.
I have found it for 199.95..
hope this helps everyone..
