Anybody have a ranchhand bumper?

I've been looking everywhere for a ranchhand style bumper for my 97. I can't find a used one around Pennsylvania or Maryland. I have found a few for 99+, the size looks similar, I know the mounting brackets are different but I can probably modify them. It seems like my only option is to modify a 99+ or pay $1000 to have a new one shipped from Texas.

You can find used ones in Texas and hope the seller would ship, checked eBay or Amazon?

As crazy as it sounds, I am not sure if they are selling them as far back as 97. The only style I saw is a Ranch Hand Legend, the one that the whole bumper and brush guard with the receiver. If the brand itself is not that important to you, I would also try tough country bumpers. They can make it custom for the 97. You would probably have to wait like a month for them to build it though before it gets out to you.

They DID, not any more. I'm going to make brackets to put it on my 97.

If you want something a little cheaper and IMO better looking get a fear no deer bumper if you can. We put one on my dad's 97. It was 900 whereas a ranch hand was 1600.

I put a gage bumper on my truck. It looks like a ranch hand and I've had no issues with it. IIRC I paid 650 for it new last year.
