Not digging new ranchhand bumper replacement.....now what?

Ok, so i got a great deal on a ranch hand summit full bumper replacement. Thought i would dig it, but its not the 'look' i had envisioned in my mind. Its hella nice, but sticks out way too far from the grill for my taste. I guess i like the sporty look....anyone know of a bumper replacement that is' near' factory size?...or maybe ill just have the factory bumper painted and put it back n sell this one to someone who would like it better?...

What does the 'nation' think?

Looks good to me... You could go with a winch bumper and loose all the grill protection

It looks ok from the front.....but from the side, the huge gap between the grille and guard just looks 'farm' to me?.....i think ill just put it up in the for sale forum and see if any fellow members are interested in a deal....

I like the way ranch hands look, been thinking of getting one for my truck. But if you were thinking of getting rid of it I sent you a PM.

What part of Texas are you in?

If you decide to sell it, I'd be interested.

Ok....im going a different route. No more ranch hand for me. Ill put it up on the sale board shortly. Asking 600 obo....im in lubbock tx, and wouldent even know how to ship this monstrosity, if anyone is interested. The local accessory shop can install for 75$ also, but it aint hard at all....just need a couple of extra hands to hold it up.
