    Draw what you want to have

    Shipping is a killer

    Check out the ARB bumper, it's heavy duty and is one of the few designed to work with your airbag sensors. They're usually sold with free shipping from places like 4WheelParts

    I just got the Relentless Fab Summit bumper. The quality and workmanship is awesome. The shipping is up there. I think it was $300 to a house and $200 to a business with a forklift available. The lead time was 10-12 weeks and it shipped on the 13th week after payment. It was worth the wait. They have several different styles and other fab you can put on your truck. I’d recommend them.

    Relentless makes some of the best looking bumpers for our trucks, I would kill for a Relentless Predator bumper with the hoops...but man it's pricey plus shipping.

    yeah they're one of the few companies that still makes skids for us 1st gen guys...I think it's just Skidrow, Budbilt, All Pro and maybe Relentless?

    I have the Budbilt trans skid but I only put that on if I'm planning on needing it, that one covers the whole tcase and trans

    My buddy made an awesome front bumper out of cardboard and masking tape.took it to a fab shop and with a little fine tuning he had the exact bumper he wanted to fit his personal taste.It was pretty cool to watch it evolve.

    Your drawing does not need to be pretty .

    Just enough to show the dimensions and shape

    It is not fun to spend big $$$$ for a quality product only to just not like how it looks .

    It comes down to just what you like

    OP`s issue seemed to be not being able to find a front and rear bumper from the same company that they liked.
