    i need a new rear bumper for my 96 4x4. Looking on fleabay, there easily going for $150+ $30ish for shipping. Are they really that expensive? Think it would be cheaper to sand blast and re-chrome my bumper?

    I bought the aftermarket one from Veng, it looks perfect.
    It came with everything too. Mount brackets, hardware, pads, plate lights and harness.
    Two years later and I have seen a few rust spots in the corners.
    I should have washed it more often in these New England winters. :(
