Default Where can I find heavy duty bumpers?

I'm trying to find a heavy duty bumper to mount a winch on. I have to replace the bumper anyway, so am looking for something that won't take all the mod funds but I can mount a winch to and push bar eventually. Any ideas?

posted this other thread before I saw this one:

If you want a heavy duty bumper, you're gonna have to build your own, or have someone build one for you. A front hitch is a good alternative for mounting a winch.

Edit: here is a pic of mine with the stock bumper and a winch in the front receiver hitch. There is also a good how to thread on adding a front receiver.
