rear ended

Alright some people should not be allowed to drive on the road. "yeah i totaled a car last year too" says the guy who rear ended me today. Anyway wrangler appears to be completely fine rear bumper has pretty much checked out altogether though so i was thinking i may upgrade any recommendations other than just another stock from the scrapyard. Looking to stay relatively lightweight but if there is something that looks really slick open to suggestions. Also if there aren't any really expensive options for a front/rear combo.
Thanks

Check out Ground Pounder Bumpers, Eddie sells them on jeep forum. His bumpers are very nice and STRONG! If you have questions he can help you too! I built my bumper from his design using his parts. I love it!

Haha yeah just wanted to see how everything held up that's all but don't bother is no big deal!! I hope everything goes well! I had an old grumpy dude ram me because I was behind his parking spot letting my dad out. Really think he was being impatient and didn't care because he just smiled at me as he drove away. Stupid people!!!

For the rear I would go with a procomp. I have pro comp front and rear bumpers. I really like them. I got into a wreck in july. I hit a 2011 cadillac doing 40. heres the end results.

Make sure you get both drive shafts looked at also. When I got rear ended my front drive shaft was bowed but didn't notice until I installed my lift kit.
