    Ranch Hand full replacement bumper
    I've wanted a ranchhand bumper for my tundra 6 months before I was able to pull the trigger, but the radar has prevented me from doing so since most of the companies have said that their full replacement with grill guard are not compatible with emblem radar. Till now
    I saw a picture from another forum with a 2018 tundra with a ARB bumper on it from one of the shows. I emailed ARB and asked if it was true that it would work with the PCS and not effect it operation, they said yes it wouldn't effect its operation. I'm stoked because I work round the clock and I'm either coming or going to work at night or running threw the pine baron to go to the shore.
    Just thought I would share

    I actually don’t hate it. Normally I don’t like how these things look, but it doesn’t look that bad.

    ARB makes some very decent beefy bumper/guards.

    Looks great but also looks heavy, I prefer a prerunner bumper that’s light providing more clearance or I might just do a custom one front and rear while retaining the hitch.

    This thing provides very good clearance IMHO.

    The pre-runner style will have less weight, but also less protection for front impacts/damage.
    These full hooped ARB bumpers are heavy and overbuilt, but they're highly regarded for being durable and protecting against impacts, which is why so many Aussie's use them.

    For a desert runner, I'd go with a pre-runner bumper.
    For wheeling in densely-vegetated areas or areas with a high risk of animal strikes, I'd go with a full-hoop bumper like this one.

    Good God that thing screams mall crawler...why would you have off road setup with 20" rims.

    The bumper without those lights would be cool in my opinion. Lights make it look too taxhy
