Different/Altering bumper of a 2000

So i have a 2000 f350 and when i bought it it came with a pretty serious aftermarket rear bumper that was painted black then in the front i have the stocky.
My trucks white and i'm trying to eventually go for the black on white look, i'll try and post some pics today, and i want a black front bumper.

what i am considering is fabbing up my own, buying aftermarket, or Rhinolining/powder coating the original. What i want from the bumper is a little more aggressive looking.

I like the idea of making my own, but with my schedule and my limited number of tools i'm wondering how feasible that is.

Aftermarket is VERY expensive and most of the time a lot more beefy than i want. I really dont want extra bars, 25 light mounts, it to stick out a foot from my truck, etc. I really have found a basic one that i like.

Then altering my stock one, i dont really know how that would be. it seems like it would be straight forward and would look good, i havent been able to find a pic of one on a truck that resembles mine.

I've been doing research and talking to some people, but what do you guys think?

The 2005 bumper in flat black looks real good with a matching grille. My neighbor has a 2005+ F350 duallie which looks like a fleet truck or something and I love how that front end looks. It's white with the flat black grille and bumper and headlights like mine.


The 2005-2007 front end is larger than the earlier ones (larger grille, lights, and front bumper) so it makes the front end look larger and stronger. It's really apparent when you see it in person and park them next to each other. I'll try to get a pic with my neighbor's truck for comparison. When you just convert the headlights, they look much larger though to the size of the smaller grille and bumper, but if you convert the grille and bumper too they look just right.
