Default Cracked front bumper valence...

I'm trying to decide if I should replace the front bumper valance with another OEM part or if I should just wait a little bit and pick up an aftermarket 4x4 bumper with a winch mount and add some fog lights.

So two questions ...

Can yall recommend a few good aftermarket bumpers? I'd like something simple, durable, and decent looking that's affordable (under$600)?

And...in case I do decide to just replace the bumper valance...who sells them online for a fair price. I've found a few but I'm not sure if they are the exact part I need. I haven't even checked a Ford dealership since they'll be asking an astronomical amount...at least not yet.

Thanks for the help!

I was just looking at lower valances today on ebay. The ones for my truck with foglight holes were only 56.00 shipped. Yes they are aftermarket but for that price ya cant beat it. Specify what truck you have, You will get better responses too

The truck is an FX4. Supercab, 4x4, 4.0L, 5sp manual. It needs a little body work and a little work on the interior but it only has 98K miles on it and got it for a pretty darn good price. The only mechanical issues I could find on the truck is the fact that the rear differential is leaking a little oil where the drive shaft enters. I plan on making this an off road worthy truck. Certainly not an extreme off road truck but something that I can use to commute to work, yet lift a few inches, get a little bigger tires, and toss on a winch so I can self recover if need be.

Are the ones on ebay quality? They look a little different than OEM. Thanks!
