6 Reasons the Ranch Hand Front Bumpers Are Unbeatable

Ranch Hand is the leading aftermarket truck and SUV bumper manufacturer in the auto sector.

Ranch Hand got its start in 1986 in a small town in South Texas when it made the "Donkey Knocker," its first bumper guard for farmers and ranchers.

Since then, Ranch Hand has gone on to perfect its original design, and now sell a variety of front bumpers within four series:

  • The Legend Series
  • The Sport Series
  • The Summit Series
  • The Midnight Series (released in 2020)

The Legend Series is slightly heavier than the Sport Series, which is also a heavy-duty bumper, albeit with reduced front-end weight.

The Summit Series is the equally dependable and reduced weight alternative to the Legend Series, while the recently released Midnight Series is the most customizable.

There aren't many products on the market that can rival a Ranch Hand bumper’s style and strength.

In addition, Ranch Hand products are easy to install, durable, and American-made—all good reasons why Ranch Hand bumpers are unbeatable.

Drivers also love Ranch Hand’s front bumpers because they’re a status symbol in addition to being a high-quality barrier that offers the average vehicle maximum defense.

I love my new Ranch Hand brush guard on my new '21 Tacoma. I was worried that I may have an issue with the pre-collision system, but after a ride today, no lights or issues.

It gives the truck a lot more attitude! It takes awhile to decipher the instructions, but installation wasn't difficult. I found it to be much easier by removing the grille assembly..”


Reason 3: Sleek Bumper Designs

Ranch Hand designs their bumpers with lifestyle in mind, and their creativity dispels any notion that bumpers should look anything less than stylish and pimped out.

Any truck enthusiast who is also a farmhand, rancher, construction worker, road worker, or lumber hauler can increase their cool factor with a Ranch Hand bumper.

Testimonial from Whitney T.

Just because you need a bumper for challenging work conditions doesn't mean your vehicle shouldn't look good!

So, whether you’re driving through the farm, wilderness, rugged terrain, or city, make your 4WD look spectacular with either a Ranch Hand Midnight or Sport Series bumper.

Me and my soon to be wife were driving down the road when the track bar snapped on my 2015 F-250 sending us into a 3 ft round cypress tree at 55 mph. We hit the tree so hard it pushed it out the ground we had a Ranch Hand Bumper installed less than 8 months ago.

The bumper took full force of the hit dead center. We were able to cut our seat belts and walk out the truck with only bumps and bruises. Ranch hand has my business for now on. We were able to come home to our little girl.
