Default Custom or Stock rear?

Alright guys I got rear-ended about 2 months back. Dented up my bumper pretty bad and bent the mounting brackets to hell. THANKFULLY it was my best friend that did the rear-ending. He has agreed to give me the dealer price on an oem bumper...

Do I take the money to a fab shop/build a custom bumper OR go get the stock one?


Thanks for your help guys

I've seen a couple guys run tube rear bumpers that wrap around the side and stop at the edge of the wheel well. I think it looks really good, but thats just my .02

Check out Iron Bull Bumpers. They are real $$$ but you might get some good ideas...
