Aftermarket rear bumpers

Looking for some ideas and pics for rear bumpers. Definitely want black.

Wife got me an Iron Cross front with the LED fog kit and wont use I.C. again. A small fortune for a front bumper that showed up wrapped like chit , had a scuff down to bare metal about 4" long and all we got was " take it up with the shipping company ". That and the strength of it leaves some pondering questions as to what will happen to it with any kind of hit other than having to do a full replacement as from the mounting points out there is no vertical reinforcemnt , tie back to the frame or to the front of the bumper. It looks good , but i seriously doubt its crash effectiveness. So with all that said be forewarned and please no Iron Cross recommendations....

So whats everyone running for a custom rear , Pics , prices ??? Don't want ranchhand (Texas and its as overplayed as could be) so that's out. I've even thought about getting a stocker in black or doing the one i have now in powdercoat and diverting funds to a more worthwhile spend on something else on the truck.

Bumper prices have gotten WAY out of hand IMO. Around here you can have one built at a shop cheaper than a standard aftermarket one. I can remember when arb was pretty much the most expensive out there, now they're almost cheap by comparison. For the rear, a piece of 4" channel or 2" pipe with some diamond tread on top is always simple and looks good.

Whenever I can fit them in the budget, I am going with Trail Ready bumpers!!
TrailReady Winch Bumpers for Ford Superduty Trucks - F250, F350, F450, F550

My next choice would be a Reunel bumper:
Reunel Extreme Heavy Duty Bumpers

the trailready is a decent looking bumper for the price

with any winch bumper you get what you pay for.

arb prices haven't gone up as fast because they're taking advantage of mass production in asia. the quality is still there. i have an arb on the front of my tacoma that has taken a pretty serious beating and still looks ok.
