Ready made Iron Bumpers?

Guys, I'm looking on the Net for someplace that has ready made iron tube or metal bumpers. My 2008 Ranger 4x4plastic shell is just that, plastic junk. It fell off after a few years of driving on my job as a Rural Mail Carrier. Is there someplace I can order one to install with foglamp holes? thanx.

Are you looking for aftermarket plate bumper or a stock metal bumper?

Whatever is cheaper, unless it's close in $$$ than I'll go custom. Can't believe the crap they put on a truck now. My foglamp bulbs actually shook to pieces. I should have bought a FX4, but bought a XLT instead.
Thx.

Look at certifit for stock replacement parts or a junkyard might have it too.

As for aftermarket bumpers they are not cheap.

New OEM will be pricey, almost as much as a Custom 4x4 Bumper, JY price will be better.

A great idea is to keep the OEM steel part and make a tube lower section with skid plate.
Can’t remember who but there is a nice front bumper setup on this site like I am describing, one of the best mixed bumper setup I have seen.
