Ali Arc replacement

5115 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Torqued
I am wanting to put a front replacement on my truck and I have always been dissatisfied with steel ones that I had on my old trucks. They were too heavy. I tow in deer country in Texas and we have hit many deer over the years so I want good front end protection. So, I am thinking about the Ali Arc brand of replacements for my RAM 3500. Does anyone have experience with this brand or any other quality aluminum full replacement? Thanks.

Just looked these up, wasn't floored about the look, but it kind of grew on me. I have seen their big truck stuff and looks right at home on the front of the rig.

80 POUNDS wow, I like the sound of that. If you go that direction, I would love to see pics/know where you got it, all that good stuff.
What kind of money are they going for? I searched but I couldnt come up with much.
I didn't know much about aluminum replacements and still don't. I saw one in Gatesville a couple of times in the last week on a two tone RAM but have not been able to check it out or ask about it. So I started researching. The weight savings is awesome for trucks that are basically maxed out on the front from the factory. The on-line testimonials at the factory site are very impressive. I found a used one on ebay for GM for $750. It even has the lower rake. On new ones I found a dealer in East Texas and then I found this site:

Their new ones for RAM start around $1600. You could easily pay this or more for a high end steel replacement. Still it is a big investment. I am going to think about it. I would also think that somebody on here has one.

My buddy has a Herd bumper and it appears very beefy. Pricey though.

I have seen several Ali-Arc bumpers over the years up here. Most of them without the lower "cowcatcher" bars were all bent up on the lower skirting. They seem flimsy in that regard.
I found that Buckstop also makes an aluminum replacement. I do like the Herd too. Thanks.

The Ali Arc bumpers fold very easy. I do not recommend them. I have seen Herd and Truck Defender bumpers take on deer without an issue.
