Front bumpers

So some douche backed into my front bumper. I'm just going to put an aftermarket one on. I've found a few web sites but am having problems finding something I like for a good price. If you have any links that I could check out that be great, thanks.

Custom 4x4 has a nice one that fits the 03 Ranger, not sure if it fits 08 or not but maybe worth a call if it is what you want.

C4x4

Thanks Grev, those are good and it says it fits an 08 but not as clean of a bumper as I'd like. I found a winch bumper made by "iron bull" looks really good but probably quite costly so I'm going to look into it and still shop around...check it out ford

As stated below Iron Bull is expensive, big and heavy. C4x4 is a rugged bumper and smaller in overall looks, I have one. You can add a light bars or lights, a radiator loop or Fogs as you want. Price is around $600, less that half the Iron Bull price and HD all the way.
As far as clean, not sure what you are looking for but this bumper is clean, not too bulky and holds a Winch.

Way up there in price, C4x4 is a better all around buy and there bumpers are made for a Ranger.

I tried a local shop, letís just say I didnít get a warm feeling when I first started working with them and got out early. Unless they build specifically for Ranger then it will be a trial and error thing and if they arenít willing to cut you a break then you will be paying more in the long run.

Good Luck on your chase, i went through it, iron Bull didnít fit my taste/look, although it might work for you.

You may already have these pics but they are not my truck just a Ranger with the C4x4 Bumper.
I like this one because it is more compact than the Iron Bull unit, less weight and it will take a good hit.
I have one to go on my truck but will be cutting the mounting to mount the bumper with less over hang.

I really like that last one posted, just wish it had had that loop that goes across them. I wanna change mine out after the motor swap and that is the kind i was trying to draw up. I'll prolly make it myself though.

mine is a different model c4x4 that I had to modify pretty heavily to fit my ranger, bought mine on a hunch and some measurements. Then he started selling a ranger version later.
