I have had them on several of my big trucks and they were tougher than woodpecker lips.


not really feeling the looks of their jeep line IMO....

Never a complaint about the quality.

Ron is correct. Several of the trucks here on the farm have them.

You could knock a hole in the side of the Battleship "Texas" with one of their bumpers.

I don't think I have ever seen one on a Jeep, tho.

I getting the ranchhand rear bumper put on today. I got a steel on it and i have always been a fan of there products, back when I was a truck guy. The front bumper looks a little too much for me but the rear looks badass, and backup lights perfect. I only negative i can tell is the glossly back which i can fix with a rattle can, and the weight of it. Normally there stuff is pretty heavy, but that should help keep my rear tires from siding in the rain. I'll take a pic and give you my notes after a few days. Whoo!

I agree that the rear bumper is not bad at all. It was the fronts that looked too.... blocky? Like it didn't "flow" not sure how to 'splain.

Looking forward to the pics of the bumper installed

PostSubject: Ranchand Bumper Review   Thu 18 Mar 2010, 1:29 pm

First things first the price is right under 400.00 with tax installed at the Ranchand store in SATX with military discount. Second the bumper is awesome, so far I haven't had a chance to use it in a recovery situation, but I've been told with some new grade eights bolts, It should be up for whatever. The step is cool and I can see my self using it a lot once I take my top off. The weight of the bumper gives me all kinds of stability in the rain WHOO HOO!! but not so much that I lost any power in my take off which is a plus, yes still running 3.21's. The diamond pattern is a great look, and now I'm thinking that's how I want my fenders. The back up lights are just and added plus, now I don't have to added them on my own. My 35x12.50 KM2's just barely fit on the factory tire carrier, which actually on seems to support most of the weight keeping it off of the rear door, which seems like a win to me. The only thing I don't like so far is the color or finish, which I can fix with a rattle can but I'm either too lazy or busy to jump on it yet. It's even strong enough to add a customer tire carrier on it if you want to. As far as bumpers go again for under 400.00 bucks it's a steal people..They also carry some great stuff there like the gum safes, warn stuff, and many different hitch trays etc.... go check them up and tell them PJ sent you.

Keep in mind that the tub flexes on the frame, so there is still stress on those tail gate welds as the tire gets pushed down against the bumper etc.
