Welds could of been neater
Looks solid but didn't fit. ICI service has been horrible and drawn out. 10 days without a bumper and I don't know when my replacement is coming. Hit the hitch and wouldn't slide forward and sent pics. I understand wanting to figure out the issue but let's get my issue fixed then figure why the bumper doesn't fit. Service at bumper only was excellent at least.
Items as described and the shipping was prompt. Thanks.
Bumper went on fine, looks nice, heavy built. Skid plate does not fit. I mistakenly thought from the web site and chat that i would get a free set of lights with it. Well when a coupon popped up for new customer discount i took it and apparently you cant have both. I would have gladly tradrd my $75 discount for the lights but not happening. I should have read the new customer discount closer i guess. I felt like it was not square dealings. And my future business will reflect that.
Service, delivery and product were perfect.
I would have to say that ARB nailed it when their engineers designed this bumper. I've gotten a lot of admirers who just marveled at the look and the apparent strength that this bumper projects.
Already signs of rust and hasn't been on for more than 2 months
Awesome heavy duty bumper that's simple , functional and looks good . It just needs something on the back side to fasten the back up sensor wires to !
Quick response. Great to deal with.
The bumpers were ordered over the phone with a representative. The rep was extremely helpful and even gave me a significant discount for purchasing all 3 items at once. Then he prepared and invoice and emailed to me. After purchase he asked me if I would post some pre and post pictures of my truck and I agreed; however I have not been able to since that option is not available on the site. The bumper arrived promptly as told. They were delivered by a freight company. After inspecting them and found them to be in tip top shape, I proceeded to remove my bumpers and found that the most difficult task of the entire process. Because the Smittybilt bumpers fit like a glove and I had no issues installing them, I did have to drill some additional holes for the front case that holds the wench and the bumper. The front bumper is two separate pieces the cradle that installs to the frame and holds the wench and the bumper that installs to the cradle. Great concept; because I think this actually stabilizes the bumper better than having one piece. Also the wench fits perfectly in its on separate box. The bumpers aligned perfectly and the lights came with all the necessary wires to reach from the rear bumper to the engine and into the cab. The only complaint I have is the install instructions were very low quality they looked like they were xeroxed one to many times. I think with such good quality bumpers, corners should not be taken on the instructions after all the instructions are the backbone of any item that needs to be assembled. Consider a downloadable PDF of high quality or a CD. The wench did come with very good instructions and color pictures unlike the black and white picture blurry pictures that were for the bumpers. The wench works flawlessly and very easy to assemble and install and the access ports on top of the M1 bumpers are great and make it very easy to access your wench. So I am giving this transaction overall a 5. The quality of the bumper also a 5. The wen...
Good fit and finish, vastly supperior to the factory rear bumper.
Looks Great, couldn't be happier with the outcome.
Easy to install
These guys were awesome. I live half an hour from town and a couple of guys in town said they'd match the price, but this was free shipped to my front door, then shackles showed up, then a light bar showed up, then under-coating spray should up. Well worth the money and a pleasure to do business with, will be ordering another for my truck from them!
Told me on the phone the bumper would SHIP in 3 to 4 weeks. I Received in 10 days. AWESOME SERVICE. Thank you kindly.
Great product shipped in a timely manor
I have installed several custom bumpers. This is the easiest yet to get adjusted for that perfect fit. All edges are right where they should be. The easiest install I've done. Built very strong too.
Looks awesome. Great Quality. Perfect fit. Great packaging. Quick shipping.
I recently purchased a ranchhand bullnose for an 08 superduty. Bumpers only was easy to deal with and prompt with shipment. Ranchhand doesn't dissapoint with fit and finish, top notch company with top notch products.
I liked the look of this bumper compared to all the others i looked at online, and I had a minor fender bender so I decided to go for a heavier bumper. The price was fair, and they thru in a 20 inch bar light and two fog lamps. All the hardward was supplied, however the instructions were very vague and did not include all the steps necessary to install the bumper, I had to scavage a part off the old bumper in order to attach the hood release, so it took some thought prior to lifting the bumper into place. Once all of that was figured out, the install was pretty simple with the help of one other person and some blocks to support it in place. It bolted on nicely, had some wiggle room due to the slotted holes and even came with a brand new skid plate which i was not expecting. I love the look of the bumper, as it does not cover up the classic FORD lettering in the grill. I would highly recommend this bumper. Now I am thinking about replacing the rear bumper to match, what a great product.
Bumper looks good & was easy to install.
This product looks great and was easier to install than taking the tow hooks off of my truck!
I recently bought this grille guard for my son as a Christmas present. It arrived timely and was easy to install. Fits perfectly on his new Chevrolet and looks great!
Fast shipping, great price, and fantastic customer service. Thank you!!
I'm very happy with the service from bumper only. My bumper was delivered on time as described.
Thought it was a very nicely built bumper, would buy another one and recommend this unit to others.
Never been happier with the look of my truck. This piece right here made it stand out from all others trucks. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
Awesome perfect fit
This thing is a beast! Looks sharp, and is super tough. I will never keep a stock bumper on a truck ever again. Ranch Hand is the way to go , def can't beat the bang for the buck on this.
Fits perfect on my 2005 SIERRA 1500
So far I'm in love with this bumper. Very easy to install only took about an hour to put on. Its very heavy duty and not to mention it looks awesome.
would buy one for my second truck and recommend this unit to others.

Fits perfect on my Ford 250 Super Duty
This is a very large and heavy winch which requires an offset mount. Having said that, I love it. It's fast strong and the compressor kicks. With an auxillary tank you can run air tools. I also bought the wireless remote but was disappointed to learn that it will not turn the compressor on and off, only the wired remote can do that. I highly recommend this, especially with a JK where real estate inside the engine compartment is limited and compressor options thin.
Always wanted one haven't had to use it hope i dont
I have had this bumper for about 6 months now and it's still doing good. It was easy to install except for some bolts for the bumper came powder coated and I had to take a wire wheel on the grinder to get it off so I could put the nuts on them. I removed the factory bumper by myself and had 3 other people help me put on the new bumper, 3 to hold it up on the truck and 1 on the ground to tighten all the bolts.After having the bumper for a few months I can see normal wear and tear on it, there is some powder coat on the front of it missing from rock chips and such but nothing to noticeable. All in all the bumper is really solid and looks good just the powder coat does come off fairly easily to rocks.
What more can be said about this brand that hasn't already been said. The quality, fit and finish never disappoints.
The bumper arrived weeks before it was due. It installed faster and easier than I have anticipated and words can't describe how amazing it looks on my truck
Awesome tool. The only concern is that the Fairlead is not Polished aluminum any longer.
A well built product that looks great on my truck. Installation was easy with the use of a floor jack. The product is heavy made. I would purchase again for my next truck.
I bought this bumper on the 6th of June in 2016. There is only one bad thing about it. That is, 2 of the mounting bolts wouldn't fit through mounting bracket on the bumper so I had to get 2 new smaller bolts. Now to the good. This freaking bumper is the best $700 I've spent on my Ford so far. I put it on my 2012 Dodge Ram. I believe its rated for 5,000 pounds. I've pulled double that without any problems. If you think Ranch Hand is a waste of your money and time, go shove you dick up your rear end and jump till it falls off. Ranch Hand has the toughest and best looking bumper on the market currently and its gonna take a lot to change that. It was delivered in 4 days by a Semi tractor. I can even stand my fat a$$ on it and jump and it doesn't even know I'm on it.
A great add-on for the Raptor! It is very well made and sturdy. I've had this on my truck with an aftermarket 40" Westin, single row LED and I enjoy it a lot!
1. Most LED light bars are straight, but this bumper is curved. It's not a huge issue, but bars larger than 20" will require drilling and fabrication of brackets.
2. The bumper cuts out the bottom portion of the old bumper (obviously), but when driving through standing water/wet mud, the bumper throws 100% of the water/mud directly on the windshield, blocking visibility completely.
it will not pull my 07 dodge 3/4 ton diesel out of the mud or snow banks with out the use of two snatch blocks with out stalling, and the 16.5 will single line put on my 1 ton. i do like haveing the air compressor handy for my rear air bag. so i would say if you can aford it get the 16.5

This thing is a beast. I bought mine to go on my 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. I have a lot of custom mods, including a custom fabricated stubby bumper. After trying to mount it with some help from a tech that belongs to my Jeep club we realized we would need some specialized help mounting this.
I would say that mounting it on top of a bumper would require little effort, however if you're mounting in a recessed location inside a stubby bumper there are some logistical issues that can require some additional modifications.
First, the vacuum pump will need to be relocated to the engine bay to accommodate the winch. Even with this relocation, you will likely need to trim a little metal from the bumper mounting brackets. Lastly, depending on the depth of the winch mounting plate, you may need to fabricate a custom extension in order to orient the winch properly.
That said, now that all the mods have been done, this winch is awesome. The reason I bought it was after my rugged ridge 8,000 lbs winch failed me in the trail. Most winches have a port on the winch to connect a wired remote for operation. Problem was the plug that seals the port came loose while I was getting stuck in a 4ft deep mud pit. The inside of the port became filled with mud and despite trying to clear it of debris, I wasn't able to get the remote to connect to operate the rugged ridge winch.
The bumper is really well made and looks good on my F250. The only thing is it does not look just like the picture.
