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.

Not the best picture but you can see it. I can take a picture of the ranch hand tag if need be.

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.

Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.
