The only thing i see good about ranch hand is: My little F-150 was hit by a F-350 head on in the snow. (just because you have a dually 4x4 dose not mean you can do 50 around a corner in the snow). Him doing about 50 me doing about 25 and my ranch hand keep it from being far worse than it could have been, But I think that is more due to the way I mounted it than the bumper its self.

They are very well built though. I am interested in the fact that I can hook a hitch or winch up to the front bumper if I want to. They are local to me to and that overbuilt concept can be fairly nice, buddy had one in which someone hit him in a parking lot, no damage to his truck.

Ranch Hand is definitely a strong bumper, but the weight will shorten the life of your front suspension and steering components. You notice their brochures say nothing about the weight. No doubt it does do the job.

There could be an aluminum product coming out of Australia soon. I will let everyone know if and when that happens.

this would certainly cut a lot of weight out. I wish Aluminum was used more extensively in automotive components and the auto itself since it has such a high degree of weight savings.

With respect, there isnt anything bad ass about how that truck looks! IF they ever get here and someone starts offering 4 to 6" lift kits for them then the truck will start to look better.

Okay I agree. I do think that it would make a tremendous difference. With my old ranger, it was amazing what a lift and big tires did to the look of the truck!
