Any of you guys have a Ranch Hand grill guard on your 4th Gen? Any issues? Any pics? Thanks.
Mine is by GO INDUSTRIES in Texas and they call it a Rancher. Don't know if it's the same one you're looking for. Here's a few pics. About $900. with the Armor coating. 3 yr warranty.
Had the same bar on my '09 Ram 1500 only it was powder coated gloss black. After 2 years of commuting 90 miles a day, it looked like it was sand blasted and rust was all over it. This armor coat is well worth the $$. It's hard but rubbery and holding up great.
Was looking at the Ranch Hands specifically, but will check those out!
I have an older style Ranch Hand on my truck but it's a plain white crew cab diesel not a Big Horn... Will take some pics tomorrow and post them...
If I recall correctly, the Ranch Hand guards are a bumper/guard hybrid that replaces the stock front bumper entirely.
For what it's worth, I have a Westin Outdoorsman grille-guard (bolt-on, not integrated), so no pix for you
Ranch Hand makes both, a bolt on and a bumper replacement
A friend has those on all three of his Ram diesels. Each weighs about 500 lbs. and he cant figure out why he is having so much trouble keeping the front ends from premature wear. Between the weight of the diesel and the guard it is just too much.
I have the Ranch Hand on my F350 and my Ram 1500 Big Horn. Wouldn't be without. I am not experiencing any "premature front end wear", never heard of that before. And it only weighs 125 lbs, not 500.
I have the older-style big frickin' honkin' Chuck Norris couldn't kill it Ranch Hand on my 2500... I don't know what it weighs but I wouldn't want it on my foot! When I get some free time from work and can get into the shop, I'm actually going to trim some metal away. I am going to get a Rancho leveling/lift kit and they make a kit specifically for trucks with winches and winch bumpers. I love the Ranch Hand, it's already protected me and the truck in an 80mph collision but good gawd this thing is massive!
Looks great! No vibration or anything?
