Rancher 420 Bumper interchangeability

Ok working on a 2011 Rancher that needs a new front bumper. Looking at partzilla they show part number 81150-HP7-A00ZA for $145 Their interchange list shows it is for years 2009-2014

But looking at the 2007-08 they show part 81150-HP5-600ZA for $76

Did they really change the design or is it just a part number change?

With the earlier one being less than half the price of the later one it's tempting to order it instead.

If Iím not mistaken working at a Honda power sports shop.. the bolt holes might be spaced differently or it was the width of the bumper that was the change.

Could be wrong though lol

is it really worth the headache to order the wrong bumper, wait a week to get it, take it out of the box, only to find out it wont fit ?, then have to pay to ship it back. if its not on the list ?, 9 out of 10 times..there is a reason !.

Ehhh, if it were me I think I'd risk it.

Looks like the early models had a crossbar that the later ones didn't have

I know the bumpers were different on 05-06 Foremans and 07-11 Foremans, but they were interchangeable. The difference was tube on the 05-06 vs I beam on the 07-11 mounting points, but the bumpers were completely interchangeable.

Carrier (front rack) is the same on the 07-13 420's, so that tells you the top mounting points are in the same place.

Winch plates are the same 07-13 so that tells you the mounting points on the front of the frame are the same.

That leaves the bottom mounting holes, and I highly doubt they are in a different place.

No guarantees, but it just wouldn't really make sense for Honda to change the frame THAT much on the same generation of machine, simply for different bumper mounting points. The 07-08 Frames ARE different than the 09-13 in the back, because the later frames added an additional rear end mounting point for the IRS rear cage on the AT's. The footshift and ES swingarm mounting points stayed in the same place.

If you do gamble and order the cheaper one, let us know how it works!

Got the 07 bumper in today and bolted it up, it bolted up fine. I was able to find it new on ebay for $70 shipped; that beats the $145 I was looking at for an 2011 bumper.
