Frontier gear is the best "looking" IMHO, ranch hand is nice, it looked good on the older rigs, This is what I am wanting to get.

Ranch hand has been around the longest, all the others are copys. They are great bumpers, I have put them on all my trucks. Frontier gear look good, but lack the 4" pipe in them which is what makes a ranch hand so strong. The absolute best is south texas outfitters when it comes to ranch hand style bumpers, but those bumpers are PRICEY!

I have been looking for a while and I think I'm going to go with the Ranchhand legend. I just emailed south texas outfitter for a little more info and price on their bumpers. I figured what the heck, I'm only about 15min away from them. 2008 Ford F250 Legend Front Bumper

For a bumper like a ledgend series from STO, with out a winch plate it will be in the $1600+ range.

Those look good, and have a nice price tag on them. Congrats on the purchase. Now avoiding deer isnt as big of a deal.

And a Ranchhand legend is what $1200? I heard back from him and STO's has a 5" pipe. here is what he said. "My front bumpers begin at 1295.00, a receiver is 99.00 with install at 95.00. The rears begin at 589.00, a receiver is 99.00, back up lights are 189.00 and if you have bak up sensors they are 199.00 reinstalled, there is a 65.00 for install. Both of these bumpers are to be in black. If your truck is two tone and want to match the bottom paint there is a additional 239.00 per piece charge." I guess I need to get a quote from Ranchhand and see what the difference is.

Try and find a ranchhand outlet, they will have some special pricing. I got my front bumper installed and color matched for $1200, and the rear installed and color matched for $650. That was in 08 and I know steel is a little higher now but the deals are out there.
