    I'm looking for a heavy duty front bumper for my 97' F-250HD old body style. What I mean by heavy duty is one like ARB makes with a winch mount and bull guard on it. Anyone know of a manufacturer that makes one for that year truck? I'm told from ARB that they don't make them.

    I just sold a 94 F-350 with a nice winch bumper. It was made by Ramsey, at least that's what the emblem said. No idea if they are still available though.

    Couldn't get an ARB one? They have a scrath and dent sale on their website. IIRC warn also has a flatter one.

    I am in the Truck Accessory business. I did a quick check and it looks like Reunel if they make one would be the way to go. All the people I buy the HD bumpers from no longer make one for a 1997.

    Reunel makes nice stuff, there also the most expensive. If your on a budget try these guys
    http://brownstruckacc.com/frontends.html
    They will do custom mods to existing products as well for reasonable fee's.
    I replaced my rear bumper on my Dodge with a Browns that is exactly 3 inchs wider then a stock bumper. They were the ONLY company that would do a "custom " size for me, with a reasonable up charge. I talked to all of them including Reunel. Most wont do anything Custom, and those that did wanted hundreds more.
    My rear bumper was under $600 shipped with oval backup lights, welded receiver and extended the 1.5" on each side. Its a 10" drop so you loose the factory hitch The welding is first class workmanship for sure, and I dont need to worry about my ass hangin in the breeze now :nod:
