New South American winch bumper

Why does south america get all the cool toys I really want to see about importing one of these new modles.



heres the web link

http://www.rhino4x4.com.ar/ficha.php...=49b0692ad9a38

Who do we have to kill to get these in the states? they are the right size and lay out I think minimal fabrication would be required to get one on a US ranger.

edit: sent an email to them we will see what they say.

No fabrication should be needed, as the rangers from South America are built on the same platform.

Easiest way to find out how much it costs would be to call the company, and ask for an English translator or something.

I imagine, though, that you could take that picture into a local fab shop, and somebody could make it basically the same for a lot less then importing it into the US.

they get so much more aftermarket down there because the f150 doesnt exist down there. the ranger is like 'the' truck.
