Cool steel bumpers

Who makes a cool steel front bumper? The AEV is a lot of money and the TAG looks funny. Does anyone else make one?

They can run pretty high, I'd suggest trying to find someone local to you that may build them. You can't find a steel bumper with good quality for less than $1000 online, and I got a local guy that can build me one for $700.

My guy told me it would just be primered and I would have to get it painted how ever I wanted since he is just a builder, not a painter. You can take it to a local paint ship and have it color matched or paint it with a bedliner like I'm going to do.

Thats more what I'm looking for. I'll check with some local fab shops and see what they say. I'm also thinking of building tubes underneath the stock bumper so it looks stock until you hit something then its metal
