Need a new bumper

I was wheeling in the snow this past weekend and I ripped off my plastic bumper. The plastic below the chrome where the fog lights are held. Instead of buying another piece of plastic that I am going to rip off I'd like to find something tough. I called a local fab shop and they quoted my about $1000 in labor plus materials. That is a little too high for me. I was wondering if there is anything already pre made or manufactured. The only one I can seem to find is the Dixon Brothers racing bumper. http://www.dixonbrosracing.com/prodd...=DBR-012&cat=1 I would appreciate it if somebody can tell me of other aftermarket bumpers that I can't find. Or maybe soembody local (phoenix area) knows of a shop or can fab me up one. Thanks

I went there today and the door was locked. There was no sign of their hours and I looked in the phone book and online and can't find a phone #. I looked around and all I saw were lowered trucks. I know that 4 wheelers does fab work. I really don't want to spend 1300-1500 for a bumper.
Here is a link for the guys I called. http://www.4wheelers.com/

I just want a simple bumper like this one. It is tough,looks good, and gives me a better approach angle. No snowbank is gonna take this off

This bumper is $898 and I'd be happy to pay that much for such a well made clean product.

Thanks bdiddy. I'll give them a ring sometime next week. I'll print out a few examples of what I'd like it to look like and show them that and my truck and see what they say. I also want to make sure that all important things up front are covered by this bumper like the radiator and its hoses etc. or probably my skid or a new one will cover that up. Since they work on cars they probably know what they're doing.

You want one of those bumpers like the dixon one?
Send me a pic or sketch of what you want.
I'll build it and.... Put it on ebay.
And you can buy it.
After I see the sketch of what you want, I will give you a ball park figure of price.
If interested. If you want to see some of my work go to...
