New GR Trailers bumper replacement

Didn't see any of these on the forum, so here's some pictures and details.

I had some damage to the front of my truck that required a bumper replacement and after looking into several options, I wasn't thrilled with how far out the Ranch Hand and a lot of comparable bumpers stuck out from the front of the truck or the $1100 minimum price to have one delivered.

I called Hendry's and Buddy (I think that's his name??) told me about the bumpers GR Trailers was making. He sent me some pictures to my cell phone and I decided to take one. He was sold out by the time I got around to placing the order (2 surgeries), but he had one drop shipped from GR. Hendry's had them for a hair over $700 before shipping. Contacting GR directly, they were cheaper on the price, but the shipping was almost three times as much making it surprisingly cheaper to buy the product from someone other than the manufacturer.

Here are some pictures:








Bumper is very solid. It has 1/2" steel plates running from the bumper to the frame of the truck. The shop that put it on for me was really impressed with how well it was built. I've only had it on for a bit over a week and fortunately haven't hit anything with it, but I like how it looks, it's not too big, and it doesn't add another 3 feet to the front of the truck. You can only see the top of the vertical beams when sitting in the truck.

It would be nice if the front license plate mount was optional, but it's welded on the bumper I got. There is a hitch receiver in the front and the openings for the fog lights are just that, openings, with nothing drilled or any kind of mounts to allow you to do your own thing with them.

I'm going to use a Dremel and some paint afterward to cut a hole for the block heater plug/socket I got from Geno's Garage once I get some weather that doesn't include rain and snow.

I can tomorrow. I'm happy with it. It doesn't stick out as far as the Ranch Hands I've seen.
