Default Ditch ruined front bumper..what now?. factory or aftermarket

Huge winter storm we had here in Sarnia Ont. and my shitty tires caused me to slide into a ditch and cracked all the plastic on the front valence and grille. Thought maybe this was a sign to finally add the aggresive offroad bumper set-up. Not sure whats out there??

dude this sucks, im not to sure what to recommend for after market bumper but you could always go to the scrap yard and pick up another bumper there and then add a brush guard

hopefully you can get it fixed up soon, also welcome to the forum... it is good to see some more people from Ontario joining

Yeah, I'd say junkyard or a Pull a part thing. Who knows. I've seen bumpers on ebay for as low as 180 w/ fog light holes, but then there's shipping on that which is crazy high.

Looks like the lower valance is messed up. Ebay has aftermarkets for around 56.00 shipped. If you go factory you will pay more, probably better quality.

Damn 56 shipped is pretty awesome... If you do alot of wheeling Id get a fabbed up bumper with tow hooks and what not. If not try to find the ones Clinton mentioned... Thats probly the cheapest route

fab one up, for the same price as buying a new one you could have a sweet one, and if you know anyone with a welder and tube bender it gets a lot cheaper.

Get a OEM bumper, You will not be happy with a after market. After market will not fit up right. I done auto body repair for 12 years now. OEM is the only way to go. It is a little more but you will be happy with it.

Yeah I looked online and there is basically no good offroad bumpers! I was hoping for the same style you can get for jeeps. Looks like I gotta find a good fab shop or something!

if you are looking at prefab there isn't too much out there, the only one that comes to mind is the DBR bumper, its pricey though:
