I don't know if this ? was ever addressed. I don't have any fabbing ability, but I "know some guys" who do. Not good enough that they'll weld me up a front and rear for beer money, but well enough that they'd be considerably cheaper than ordering them from a big name-brand vendor.
From my personal standpoint, I'd say <$150 for that rear (minus a swing out.) Otherwise I can get a guy around here to build one for me for cheaper.
For that specific front, I'd pay between 200-250 with a decent warranty, D-rings, and built-in winch plate. Say maybe another $50 if it included that brush guard.
There's a guy near me who advertises fabbing all kinds of Jeep bumpers for "decent" prices (assuming his quality is as advertised.) I could get the exact set-up I want (front and back) for around 700, and that's fairly pimped out with a swing-out rear, d-rings, hitch mount, winch plate, etc.
