Let's go shopping!

Got rear-ended AGAIN today. I'm gonna need quite a few parts fixed, but I need to shop for a new REAR bumper. The stocker got crushed and I want something a lot stronger.

Eventually, I want to go with a pre-runner style front. Basically get this look:






I just never thought about the rear. I'll probably color match it to the lower accent strip. What do you think?

Here's my truck next to the Harley that slammed into it. The guy got banged up pretty bad, but I think he's alright.

Right now, I've got my eye on the Fab Fours rear bumper for the recovery points and lower steps. But does anyone know of one like it but cheaper? lol $1100!

I'm not looking to have a "Ranch" truck. I'm looking for something sporty like the Fab Fours, jut hoping to find something cheaper. I think $1100 for this is a little too much.

have you thought about an OEM bummper then adding a n-fab rear prerunner bar? or building one like it? maybe bringing the ends around to the corner of the bumper and using slightly larger tubing? its only about $300 also

Those are also nice, but the price is the same. Are they all gonna be like that? Personally, I think that's too much for the material and work involved.

Nah, I'm not into that style. And if I'm going to fabricate it, then I'll probably copy one of the full bumpers. It doesn't seem that hard, I just don't have the time or energy to do it.
