fishnhunt-got the info

Here is the info on that grill guard. My friend got it from one of the guys at his station and he also verified it in the phonebook. Anyway, here it is:

Hinds Ranch Supply shirly ray dr.774-4404

Hope it helps you.

oops, forgot to give you the area code (830)-774-4404

Re: fishnhunt-got the info

Hey Fireman,

Didn't you say a couple days ago you also had a Ranchhand bumper? Is that what you fellas are talkin' about? I did a search, but couldn't find the old thread, so I'm just taking a shot in the dark. I remember your pic in that old thread everyone posted, and paid particular attention to the bumper too.

If not, sorry.

If so, how do you like it? I've been here in a TX for a couple years now, and see them everywhere. So expensive, though. Like buying Nike's when Kangaroos will get the job done instead.

Re: fishnhunt-got the info

No, I don't have a ranch hand. What I have is made by Del Rio grill guards. That is the one in the pic. They are a small company, and are based out of that place mentioned above. I have seen too many ranch hands degrade in wrecks. While at the same time I have seen good things with the Del Rio ones. I saw a ford T-bone a car at 65 mph with one, and the Ford looked like it had not been in a wreck. The only thing wrong with the Ford was that the doors were jammed shut...would not open by convientional means. Not bad for such an impact, heck it killed the poor fellow in the car. Plus the weight of the Del Rio guard is only like 114 lbs. I'm not sure what a full Ranch Hand replacement weighs...but I'm sure it's a lot more. Why pay a lot of money to lift a truck and then have your grill guard drag it down another 1/2" or so. That was my thought anyway. I know many people that have hit deer with the DRGG. As long as you square the deer up so it does not fling it into your fender the only thing that happens is that you hear a nice little ringing sound after the hit....lol. Anyway, hope this answered your question. Oh, and yes, Ranch Hand's are too much....like 700 for some of the full replacemnets. I paid only 325 for mine installed and painted any color (they have black and white, but if you bring them any other color they will us it).

Re: fishnhunt-got the info

Yup, I agree...just wanted to hear someone else say it. I've got a good list of other bumpers I've looked at. A buddy of mine nailed 2 big deer (mule deer back in NM...not this dog-sized whitetails they have around here) a couple months ago in his Super Duty. He has a custom bumper jobber built by a 4x4 shop in Albuqerque. Anyway, turned them into two piles of hairy red jell-o. His airbags didn't even go off...nothing...no damage. Did it at like 60 mph too!

Anyway, I'll have to check out your lead too. Personally, I might actually go with a full front end replacement and a winch later....very heavy, yes, but just the way I plan to use the truck I guess.
