thanks

its just under 1/4 inch so it pretty stout, my opinion is it will look great on a tow rig or work truck or maybe a expedition style truck. but it probly cost a arm and a leg, if yo want somthing for crawling ide pick somthing thats lighter and gives a better aproach angle.

i'm not of one for rock cawling in my current rig, but i do alot of off roading with my trailer, taking my quads out. always hitting bad mud or sand, i'm always having to explore trails to pull stuck quads and utv's out. so i'm looking for something that can take a little beating but still look good once we are heading home. i liked the look of them and the fact i can bolt a winch to them and have it behind the bumper away from the action.

thanks for the inputs, if any one has any pics that they could share that would be great as well.

I have a set on my 06. Friggin love em'. I had to put my plate over the huge "road rhino" laser cut logo under the winch. But they fit real nice.
Only pic I have. I'll get a few good shots in the morn.

The Road Rhino logo is not cut out in the bumpers anymore. They stopped doing that a few months ago.

I have them on my truck and they are awesome. It's a daily driver and wheeler. We sell them for less than Road Rhino does, FYI. You can still pick them up in University Park. It takes a couple of weeks for them to get ready - we are selling a TON of them right now with tax season and also because the prices are going up March 1st.

They weigh 145 lbs which is about 100 lbs more than stock; not that much, really. Everyone thinks they must weigh 300 lbs or more but they don't.

If you weld, the WIY kits are a great deal. You can buy both front and rear bumpers for $850! They are easy to put together.


Murf, if you go by, you'll be looking for Elijah. He is the guy running Road Rhino.

Out of curiosity, how thick is the material used in these bumpers?

My Buckstop Baja and 12K winch comes in at over 350 pounds......I have read some concerns that the RR bumpers are damaged easily

The bumpers are 3/16" with 1/4" frame horns. Elijah and I have sold over a thousand of them and only one failure on a 2nd gen Ram, which had something to do with the winch that was used. It was an off-brand that had a really high line speed and created a "whipping" effect that buckled the bumper in the middle. Even with less than a .001 failure rate, Road Rhino had an engineer redesign the 2nd gen Ram bumper to provide more structure to the center of the bumper. I have personally used them with winches up to 16,500 lbs with no issues, but they were normal line speeds. Under normal conditions, these things are tough as hell. I've run over quite a few stationary objects with mine (while wheeling, not on purpose) with zero issues except the powder coat is scratched up.

A Road Rhino adds 100 lbs in base form. Add the full guard and the weight goes up. Obviously a winch is a big part of the extra weight you are reporting.

100 lbs extra is not too bad considering the metal thickness and overall size of the bumper.
