    You may have to have the bumper notched. Shouldn't be hard to do for a competant fabricator.

    I was thinking of permantly mounting my plow lights on a Ranch Hand style bumper and cuttin my Boss light tower in half to fit underneath. Or mabye dogleg the light tower to fit around the bumper. I want a Ranch Hand, too. I know how you feel.

    Down there in Ranch Hand country, they don't get no snow!

    yeh they're kick a$$ but i was thinking that with the weight of the ranch hand (500lbs) and then add the plow.. thats a lot of extra weight on the front end. and with dodges front ends sucking anyways, im just gonna put the stock bumper back on for the winter...
