If you only want to spend $500 or less, you'll be makin' it yourself. Part of the reason they cost so much is the fact that the steel alone to build them is almost half the cost... and the fact that they have put the effort into designing them, and building the jig to make them.
That's my plan, make my own, based on what I like from others I've seen, ranch hand, road armor, etc. I also plan to make a jig, as I have 3 of these trucks, and my buddy has 2 as well... so making patterns for all the peices will make sense. But all this is taking a 'back burner' to the current issues, like buying a new house and moving ASAP. Hopefully the new house will have a nice garage in which to work and do such projects.
Good luck with the bumper issue, maybe you could find a used one for a reasonable price... check craigs list for your area.
