Replace bumper with new, or buy aftermarket or 05+ swap?

When I was wheeling the other weekend getting into the mud pits after the excavators trenched it out my bumper caught a stump, the skin I thought was ok and it was just a bracket that's needed but after having it off today it's pretty rusty under the plastic covers and there's a few dings in it. Pulled out the bfh and smashed the mounting plate a lot straiter then it was and put it on so it looks...well looks better than it did before... Now I can get bumper brackets new from my dealership for over 10$ a price and get a new bumperskin online for under 150...but what's the average cost of a decent after market bumper with some fog light holes or mounts and I'd really like to put my old warn on this bad boy orrr would it be better to buy a 05 conversion and save the winch for my next bush beater

You could always do some combination of the two. I just ordered a 06 grill $200 and a Road Armor bumper $2400 the thing that kills me is now I have to pay someone to fill in the ugly logo cut in the bumper $??? then another $500 for Linex. That was a bit of an extreme option, there are many less expensive bumpers depending on the look your going for.
