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.

Search your local craigslist for used front end replacements. Attempting to get one for $500 even used is a longshot though. Off brands that have been discontinued may be the way to go, my first grille guard was modified to fit my truck, and it was $1100 plus the Rhino Lining. The one I have on it now that is high end, and it ran $1800 new before having it lined.

Best of luck in your search!

like i said, it's a little rough but if you mount it on your truck and bend it in the right direction, new paint its good to go
