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!

Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.

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.
