Bumper suggestions?

Ive decided to buy some new bumpers for my 95 wrangler... I dont do any real hardcore off roading or anything so they are mostly for look, but i do want something strong that will hold up when it needs to cause you never know what can happen! So shoot me some suggestions, maybe some pics of what you have on your jeep to see what it looks like!

Here's what I've got. It's a Smittybilt. The build is solid enough (smashed into some trees) but the paint is crap...it's already started rusting underneath and it's not even a year old
I guess you could coat it with something to stop the rust before it ever starts but I don't know much about that kinda stuff

Grab a 4wd and see what gets you off. I like the Rutgers ridge mudular bumper as well as the warn ones .. especially the rear!

Get one like mine and you'll never need another bumper (or tree plow) again...

Running a Warn on the front and she came with a Tomkin on the rear. Both have done well.
