yes much better than the cow killer bumper, although the cow killer bumper with the disabled plackert will make sure everyone stays the hell away from you LOL love the 3 piece bumper looks classic

Won't have any problem getting rid of the winch bumper. Does clean up the front, but you do loose the deer strainer

THOSE ARE BOTH AWESOME!!!! What did you do with the black one? PLEASE tell you did not throw it away!! I think I may know someone that would buy it. I think that is the old WARN bumper with an addition on it.

Yes it is an old warn bumper,


No I didn't throw it away,


Already have a trade in progress for parts I need bad.


If the current deal don't go through I will let you know but shipping would be a because it is big & HEAVY.

I like the 3 piece much better as well.
That being said those big deer catchers have there place and I dig them.

Well, if your trade falls through and Rang doesnt have a guy. Let me know as well.

It may be sacrilege but I may try to adapt it for my Dodge.

I like the looks better and it greatly helps my arrival angle but I have to make some kind of adjustments because it isn't fitting quite right.


It needs to move back about an inch and the ends angle upwards for some reason and they need to be leveled out.


I guess I'll have to cut the mounts and make the proper fixes and re-weld them?


Also I want to add: I feel sorry for you guys that actually have to work INSIDE with a smooth concrete floor....Suckers!


Maybe some day if you play your cards right you too can have a nice rock driveway to lay on and work!
