I personally like JCR Off-road and Olympus Off-road for rear bumpers. Both American made and sturdy as all get out.

I am leaning towards these. Great company to deal with too. I agree black would look great on that color. Real nice. The chrome doesn't do it justice.

Check on Ebay I bought my bumpers on there cheap, Front was under $200 and The rear under $300 with free shipping. The rear holds my 33/12.50 with room to spare and heavy enough to hold the weight.They both were finished in wrinkle finish black and look great.

You should try Craigslist, I've seen a variety of rear bumpers on and off the site, check it out.

That rear bumper looks identical to Smittybilt bumpers I've seen. The Smittybilt version is more$$. I might just check out eBay.

Fittment was pretty good has to ream out one or two holes to get it to line up (could be because my jeep was abused). They are made of heavy steel ,include all hardware.And I got them very quickly,I figured I saved about 50% buying them there.Good Luck

The front bumper looks identical to my smittybilt bumper (xrc I think) and definitely cheaper as well.
