|Good afternoon, I just wanted to say Thank You! I have had Ranch Hand front end bumpers since 2002 and just recently witnessed the strength of its protection.
On December 2nd at 530pm (DARK), I was traveling northbound on Hwy 16 North of Beach, North Dakota when I hit a cow. Both my passenger and I survive without any injury. The cow did not survive. I had cruise set at 66 and the black cow was standing directly in the middle of the northbound lane. Both of us seen the cow at the same time and I tried swerving as I applied the brakes. Swerving any harder could've resulted in a rollover because of very steep shoulders of the highway.. I new I wasn't going to miss the cow and we braced for impact at approximately 50 to 55 miles per hour. To top it all off it was windchills of 20 to 25 BELOW ZERO.
I truly feel that this Ranch Hand saved my 2018 F250 Superduty from being totaled. We drove away from this accident with no drivability issues, and my pickup having considerable damage to the front end, hood, pickup box, and the Ranch Hand bent.
Again, thank you for a very well built bumper. My pickups have had and will always have a Ranch Hand. I am shortly getting this pickup fixed. Apex Collision in Sidney, Montana agrees that this bumper saved 2 life's and my pickup from being totaled.
