new front bumper

So the other day my Jeep spun out on the interstate and hit a concrete support for an overpass. (hats off to the toughness of Jeeps that it bounced off) I'm looking for a new front bumper, preferably a dual tube to match the rear, but I don't want to get a ticket. Illinois law says the bumper must cover the entire wheel track, but I can't find one wide enough. Suggestions?
P.s. If anyone is curious, I can post pics of the damage. Jeep at 60 into concrete = new bumper. Any other car, totaled.

Jeep Bumpers Front & Rear for Wrangler JK & Unlimited at Morris 4x4

They have a good selection of bumpers at Morris. Any full-width bumper should cover your entire wheel width, as long as you haven't upgraded your wheels/tires to something wider/more backspace.

What year is your Jeep? There are a bunch of Tube Bumpers for TJ's. What brand bumper is on the rear? If you like that one you can go with the same brand up front to ensure it'll match.

Let me know if you find anything you like in the link I provided and I can get you a quote.

Just make a bumper like mine out of angle steel. Goto a local metal shop an they can fabricate one for like $150 or so. The one I have is stronger than tube bumpers since it is a piece of structural steel. Look at my jeep profile for pics.

I see by your profile that you have a '90 YJ so I've moved the thread to that forum.
