    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?

    no there not built over a frame its mostly brake work i think for me to build it i would have to build some kinda of frame jig to do it. i think i would make a model out of some thin plywood and hot glue it togethor to make the model then brake it down to make the pieces.

    i think there would be alot of tack and tweak id imagine once you get some key pieces in all the real funky angles will fall in place. i would like to make the center section out of steel so i can put my winch in it and have a aluminum outer hmm or stainless??? i still really havent found a bumper i really really like

    i still want to make a custom louvered stainless grille for my 97 F350 theres a grille i saw on a pete 379 that looked awesome!! it was like 1" strips at a 45deg angle. i want to make it so i can slide a bug screen or air block behind it

    I've built a few bumpers. I've always had good luck making them on the truck out of 1/4" foam board (available at Walmart) first. Its pretty sturdy stuff.

    They seem kinda pricey compared to the clearance sticks I've seen, although it may be the LED you are paying for.

    Those Moose Guards are sweet lookin, I had to change a tire on a Volvo VN on the side of the road one night with one of them on it, makes it fun tryin to slide under there to get a jack on it.
