The one you have looks very nice - why not just adapt the factory side braces to your bumper?

I know the old bumpers aren't very stout but I like how clean it looks....

That is called a "contour bumper". They were fairly popular on the 70s trucks before the factory had a "step bumper".

Ty, I just talked to my son who has a 1995 F150. He'd be willing to trade his factory bumper to you if you can come up with another Ranch Hand type rear bumper like you traded me for my '91.

That's cool. I might consider that depending on what I find. I actually did look for all types of rear bumpers last night and was almost thinking about going back to the trusty old Ranch Hand again. I'm 50/50 on them. Really love the clean looks of original style but gotta like the strength of the black bumpers.

I agree that it does look nice. I thought about that, but not sure it would be very strong even then. If you step on the corner the bumper moves.
