My husband fell asleep on his way home from work last night and ended up hitting a tree. We think he was going between 40 and 50 mph on impact. I'm still in total shock that he walked away from this. He's pretty banged up, but he's okay. I am so thankful to God that he is still with us today. Wanted to share these pictures with you. I think his Ranch Hand also helped to save his life!Leslie Landry
My parents had an '04 Ford F-350 with a Ranch Hand on the front. We were all out taking a drive when we hydroplaned off the road going about 65-70 mph. We took out almost 40 yards of 6-inch mesquite and other brush. If it hadn't been for the Ranch Hand, the engine would have been in my parents' laps and probably killed them. We were able to pull the truck out and drive it 25 miles home. Ranch Hand saves lives. I'll never own another truck without one. God Bless y'all!Amelia Poole
I would like to take this time to thank the Ranch Hand Company. My son was in a vehicle accident on 10-10-10 when he missed a curve hitting a tree and then a ditch.. I honestly believe that if he had not had one of your bumpers on his truck, he would not be here today. We are looking at replacing or getting his truck repaired, but whatever happens, he WILL have a Ranch Hand Bumper on whatever he is driving. Again, thank you a lot for a quality product, and I will recommend it to anybody that asks. It's not just a pretty piece of metal on the front!Don Brumley
I had a legend front bumper and rear bumper replacement on my 2006 Ford F350. I rolled my truck in an accident on June 12th. After the truck tipped on its side, it fell almost 12 feet off a culvert and landed directly on its front bumper, on concrete. The truck was totaled because of the roll over, but the bumper held, and there was minimal damage to the front end. I am now a firm believer that every truck should have one of these. I will be getting one for my next truck here in a week or two. My wife is even insistent on getting another one after seeing the accident for the protection of our child.Adam Phernetton
