HD Bumpers

Since I've had the truck I've been looking at hd bumpers but think the chrome just looks so good I'll stick with stock. But after acouple incidents my back bumper is looking alittle ruff and hd is deff sounding pretty good. My color is what really complicates it all because I dont think any color but chrome will look good on it. I've looked at ALOT and like ALOT but some has designs I dont like and the rest just goes back to it just wouldn't look good on there. Am I just being to picky? What bumper and color would you recommend?
Thanks, Daryl

Road Armor has a BAD Rep. for customer service, and would not get anything from them... Ive seen some bad manufacturing also come from them.

I would vouch for Buckstop bumpers. Buckstop Heavy Duty Winch Bumpers for Dodge, Ford, Chevy, GM, Nissan, Toyota Trucks, Vans I have one on my diesel, and it fit PERFECT. They also answered every time i called, UNLIKE road armor, and answered every question i had.

They DO make a rear bumper for our trucks, but they dont list it.

I like my Ranch Hand but as far as color you can always have it dipped in Chrome!

As far as price goes I like the ranch hand style the best but instead of chrome dipping it would probably be easier just to get a raw bumper and polish it instead of powder coating it black? I dont know if they would even do that but dont see why not

I've seen Iron Bull on here and seems like a great company ran by a great guy. When it comes to their bumpers they look great and good price compared to others but with my stock height I don't like how the front hangs low. Looks like it serves as a skid plate which is cool but I think it would look better on something with alot of lift. The rear bumper is awsome though, no complaints there. Told yall I was picky lol. I like Buckstops baja style bumper but don't like the rear bumpers. With road armor I have heard about their bad service. But before I can even think about spending the big $$$ on this I gotta replace my clutch so I can have a reliable truck!
