Looking to change rear bumper.

Looking for one of those made of pipe / plate steel.

I definitely want to retain the back-up sensors though.

Has anyone done this?

Can anyone recommend a manufacturer?

If anyone has and is willing to post pictures, I'd be grateful.

FabFours Bumper

I put a Fab Fours Black Steel Elite on my 2005 and 2016 F250. It came with the hole for the sensors.

Going in for installation at Trick Trucks in Edgewater, MD Wednesday - decided to due both the front and rear. Fab Four Black Steel line. Didn't like the full grill guard version of the front bumper so I went with the Pre-Runner guards.

I'll post pics once its done.

That combo looks a lot saner than what is on my truck.

That bumper looks cool, but that drop hitch is ugly. Takes away from the entire look.

Fab Four bumpers. The rear one retains the back-up sensors.

Before & after.

When these tires wear out, I am getting new, black rims. No lift or mud tires though.

How much does the front bumper weigh? Will it take a deer hit?

How much does the front bumper weigh? Will it take a deer hit? Would a deer just go right over it?

Just asking... Is there any mechanical reason for the bumper other than additional front protection against hits and maybe hold a winch?

Not sure of weight - not listed on their website. Id guess 125 lbs. A lot lighter than the ranch hand model.

A lot of the deer in Southern MD are small - of the three I have hit, the worst dented the original bumper. I am confident this one will fare better. In addition to added protection from a hit, there is always aesthetics.

Nailed a fairly large deer yesterday - hit him with the center of the bumper. Not a scratch on my truck. Other than the steel mesh screen over the left foglight being bent inward just a touch, the bumper is completely undamaged. Just hair and blood.

The bumper paid for itself. Had it not been for it I am 100% certain it would have taken out the grill and radiator.

Wow. There are deer everywhere where I live, but I have never hit one in my entire lifetime. It is amazing that you have hit 4...lol That bumper did fair very well from what I can see.
