Can anyone who reads this show me pics of new 08s with front end replacements. There are very few that look good! I have always like the Ranch Hand Bumpers but with the re design of the 08s they really just dont look that good. I have seen others like Fab Fours and such and some are selling for 2 grand.....way to much four a bumper in my opinion. I just want to see some options.......Thanks

The price of steel isn't what it used to be. Everything fabricated out of good steel is expensive. The cheaper stuff is not any good. If you hit something you don't want the grill to be what damages the truck.

The bumpers are good quality, just the customer service isn't there...and look at the big gap at the grille...what is that notch for? The other truck is flush with the grille, fitment is a lot better...

Fab fours are great bumpers but are over priced...Steel is expensive and hence why none of these bumpers cost less that $1100, but C'mon, who needs to charge $2200 for a base bumper with no bars.

I am happy with my bumper. The gap is because it is cut out where the winch sits. I like being able to reach things if needed but I don't think I'd miss it if it weren't there.

As for customer service. Thats a different issue which is why I mentioned the other thread...

Where were you guys when I was shopping!! ;)


Not to hijack, but what do you normally do for the winch control solenoid? I'd really like to make that box disappear

$2200, that's crazy. Well, it does have a lot of pieces at different angles that make it stand out over the round or squared off bumpers. I think it's a great looking bumper. Guess you just need a lot of money.

Yeah and along with that gap being non-existent and price being better, the control box mounts inside not on top of the bumper...its an all around cleaner look

I can honestly say I hated the 2008 when it came out...but the more and more I look at it, it is growing on me...and when its lifted...it looks sick...add the bumpers and ...WOW!
