New front and rear bumper questions... HALP!

alrighty so, after loaing my girlfriend my truck for the morning she unfortunately happened to crash my truck. both air bags blew blah blah blah, anyway it had to go to the body shop and get quoted for all the damage and have everything replaced. i told them to go ahead and not replace the bumper and valence though, and to just give me the insurance money for it (which they did) which now puts me here. i have 660 dollars to make a new front bumper, and if possible also a rear bumper.

ideally i'd want to make a bumper like this https://www.ranger-forums.com/f42/li...-bumper-84843/ for the front minues the light mounts because i dont have lights for it yet. i do want to remount the fogs in the valence to the bumper though. any ideas on how to do that or if it's possible? i also will be leaving my stock level 2 skid plate on it and not that silver thing because i've got a hunch mine is a lot more sturdy and capable.

and for the rear i'd like something like what Cooke15 did. what do you guys think? how hard is this going to be for me, and how much will it cost? i'll probably have a metal shop do it or my gf's family friend who does all kinds of stuff like this. do they weld up to the bumper brackets like the normal bumpers do or will something new have to be fabricated?

thanks,
Pavel

Just keep the factory bumpers on it, it will be worth more if you leave it stock.

cost varies based on the shop. go to a few shops, tell em what you want, and get a quote.

FWIW, my front tube bumper cost 600 to build. its a custom one off bumper that the guy spent 5 days designing and building.

but i've seen places build them for less too. but in most cases, you get what you pay for..
