Icon6 Ranch Hand Style Bumpers

After Friday of last week and my truck getting into a fender bender I'm seriously thinking about getting or making a ranch hand style bumper for the rear of our trucks but was wanting some ides on specs and material to use and check interest in who would want this style bumper? Maybe if enough people show interest in this maybe I can make them and sell them to members??

Post your opinions and ideas on this and I'll see what I can fab up.

I was looking for the back bumper since the brush guard covers the front pretty well... This is what happened to my truck on Friday

oh, i didnt know ranch hand was a brand. i thought it was just a slang trem for a bumper mad at home. best thing to do (if you have any fab skills) is to just look through google images and find somthing you like, ive been doing it for a while for a prerunner bumper and just waiting for shop space then its on

I've been doing some searching around and found this http://4wheelonline.com/images/produ...yRearGuard.gif

But not much protection. I'll keep looking

Better picture

I think you would be better off with a heavier bumper, this looks a bit on the skimpy side. just my opinion though.

If a truck backs into you, you'll still have damage just because they are higher. Get the bumper and lift it.

I'm betting they are still around $1,300-$1,500 plus shipping.
