Default Brush guard for a 96 ranger?

I've had no luck finding a brush guard for my 96 ranger. It looks like Warn stopped manufacturing it and I can't find one for sale anywhere.

I can find a winch capable bumper that has a guard on it, but I was hoping more for a standard brush guard that I'd mount a winch in front of.

Is this something that can be obtained of fabricated for a reasonable price?

Brush guards often do more damage than they guard from. If you ever hit an animal in the roadway, the brush guard crushes/dents every panel and light it sits in front of, doing more damage than just hitting the animal without the guard in place. I've seen this more than once here in central IL with people hitting deer.

HMm, what I may end up doing is installing a front receiver hitch, 12V quick connect and connect a winch when needed.

Besides ARB which is expensive and I doubt they have one for that truck, a receiver is a better choice
