Ranch Hand Bumper - Legend or Summit

Does anyone happen to have pics of a Ranch Hand Legend Series Bumper installed on a 2017? Also wouldn't mind seeing the Summit Series. Have seen the pictures on the RH website and some other close ups from videos but haven't run across anything that really gives you a good perspective/angle. Curious which style everyone prefers?

I called RH on Monday, supposedly they also are working on the Horizon Series front and rear (the non diamond plate smooth finish offered on 2016's similar to the Road Armor). I agree I would like to see some pics of current trucks with the Legend and Summit as well. Here is a legend front on a KR I found in the RH gallery.

Anyone know if the Ranch Hand bumpers are airbag-compatible?

My truck is all white so I'll probably end up going with the standard black powder coat but I assume that RH will custom powder coat a bumper for you in another color if you go through them direct?

Man those things are beefy. Are you guys running into deer and cows often enough you need all that protection? Why all the extra steel up front?

Rule #47 for all of us weekend warriors that reside within the city limits here in Texas... Always make your truck look like you run a full time cattle operation. All kidding aside - You'd be surprised how many times these things save you from getting backed into or rear ended by people that have no business being behind the wheel. Sure don't want it to be your fault though because the other vehicle is going to feel the pain.

My vote would be for the Legend just on looks alone. I have Road Armor's sitting in the shop waiting to be painted right now, but it's hard to beat a Ranch Hand as well! I'd say the Legend is THE quintessential "Texas Style" replacement.

Can you measure from the outside of the grill to the outside of the bumper? Currently I only have about 14-15" clearance in my garage. If the bumper adds another 12-13" that's going to really be cutting it close.

That's my truck lol I have a ranch hand on my truck since I drive alot of back roads due to that's where our farm fields are. Like my 15 chevy front stock bumper is bent to crap from hitting a deer. So when I got the 17 that was one of my first mods.

whoever ordered my truck added a heavier front spring option so i didn't want it to go to waste...


everything behind that ranch hand is expensive, i considered it an $1150 insurance policy. there's a picture on this forum somewhere of a nice hole through a platinum grill with a bird stuck out of it

from the tow hooks, which retain their factory position, it's about 8" further out


from the middle of the ford emblem it's about 9.5" further out


that's going to the receiver hitch in the middle of the bumper, which sticks out ever so slightly more than the rails

What's the best pricing anyone has been able to find? Ive been quoted $1350 with the Camera cutout and $1250 for no camera cutout.

Awesome! Thank you very much. I just may keep the Legend series as the front runner then. They're my favorite looking model, and the two I've had in the past held up great.
