Check out the new JCR Dagger series rear. Straight up sickness. Not sure on pricing though.

Doesn't matter at all, except in your mind. Nobody's gonna see both at the same time.

Be aware, though, that rear bumpers have a tendency to be more expensive than their counterparts. No idea why, but my Rampage rear was about $50 more than the front (which is very good, compared to some others I've seen).

Here's one of the cheapest rear bumpers I've seen. Bare bones, but will work with your factory tow hitch, if you've got one.

It is a must that they are manufactured with them and, if they are on the vehicle, they must work. But it is not illegal to remove them as far as I know. At least not in many states.
