    Post bumper plans

    hey guys
    I have been carged with building a set of bumpers for a friend of mine's 2000 ford psd. Since I, nor anyone I work with, owns that specific body style I have little to go off of for a template.

    So the question; do any of yall know a resource for plans for ranchhand style bumpers?

    Hey sign, your Moose Bumpers are designed to protect the truck when hitting a Moose, we have slightly different targets here in the US!

    A guy next door to where I work has a Ranch Hand bumper/brush guard on his pickup. For a light/medium duty truck they look like a good setup. A heck of a lot tougher than a standard bumper.

    I was looking at those road armor bumpers they look prety cool but dang hard with all the wild angles. Are they built over a tube base or what?

    The Ranchhand replacement bumpers are popular out here in the oilfields.
    Good protection from deer damage. I hit a doe once on the highway with mine, and just vaporized her.

    Usually made from 4" pipe, and many use it as an air tank.

    On a light work truck, a vise or other tool is often mounted on a rear replacement bumper.
