aftermarket front bumpers?

any nice ones out there for an obs? not to concerned about a winch mount. i'm just looking for an aftermarket one that already has clearance for 35's instead of chopping up the stock one.

The best way to get clearance for 35s is with a 4" lift. Most aftermarket bumpers just bolt into the existing mounting holes, so there wouldn't be any extra clearance for larger tires. As for bumpers, I'd recommend buckstop, they look the best IMO. BUCKSTOP Truckware - Heavy-Duty Winch Bumpers for Ford, Dodge, Chevy Trucks and SUVs

well i really didin't want to lift it anymore, but could you still tow a fifth wheel with a 4" lift? i would run 33's but i can't seem to find tires i like for a 18" rim in that size.
