Default Ranch Hand bumper

My dad's about to sell me his truck due to him getting a company truck. During sneauxmageddon he got in a little fender bender that messed up the front bumper. Insurance money is on the way and so I was gonna just get a ranch hand or something like it. Bumper/grille guard and all. Just was wondering if any of you guys knew where I could maybe get a good one second hand or know of some good name brands that aren't quite as pricey, because I don't think we'll get the $1500 that's necessary for the ranch hand name brand bumper. It's an '09 GMC half ton.

Default Ranch Hand bumper

I used to have one. I think it was only $900 with wench hole. I don't remember what brand it was though. I got it from B&M in Lafayette. I don't think they are in business anymore.

Cattleman's, hammerhead, tough country......these are comparable to ranch hand.

You won't see a lot of price change between all these and some may be more than a ranch hand.

Steel and powder coating are expensive. Good luck.

Thanks for the info guys. I found a couple used ones on eBay out of Channelview, Tx. Everything new I've called about has been $1300+. May just have to go with a regular bumper and a grille guard at a later date.

Look at craigslist. There are a bunch. Also call Line-A-Bed in Westlake, LA. They sell all kinds of stuff.

I know someone that has a new one that was ordered wrong for a customer and would probably sell it at a discount. I would have to see exactly which truck it fits.

If you could find out a price and what truck it fits and PM me I would really appreciate it.

The new ones run around $1300 for the half ton model. And the repairs are looking like they'll cost a little more than originally expected so I think what I'll do instead is just out a used bumper on it and go with a grille guard since they're like half the price. I found this Westin that I like for just $570. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1394715971.485621.jpg

There's a guy on eBay out of Channelview, Tx that's sells em used. Most are in decent shape. A buddy of mine picked up one for his d-max for $700. I looked and he had a few for me under $1k but still a little high for me currently.

Is it for a half ton? Or 3/4?

Body men LOVE any of them cow catcher bumpers that bolt to the frame . Adds somewhere around 10 k+ in damages on a front end collision as it rolls the frame upward.

I had one on the front of my F350 that caught on fire last Sunday. Progressive picked up the whole truck on a flat bed on Friday. It was a beast!uploadfromtaptalk1396218433372.jpguploadfromtaptalk1396218477138.jpg
