Hey, I'm looking for suggestions for replacing my front bumper on my 97' explorer since I'm getting a 12,000lb winch, the current bumper is bent, and I do a good bit of offroading. I'd prefer something under $400. I can adjust and create a mounting bracket if needed as I do have a mig welder. Are there any Jeep XJ/TJ/YJ or other cars that have bumpers that fit or are close to fitting and look good?

I'm still debating fabricating it myself with my welder but that's a ton of work and would still cost me a bunch for materials. I'd rather buy a $300 or less one and modify it to fit. I see a bunch online for jeeps around that price.

Something like this could be perfect. Do ranger bumpers fit pretty close?

I bought both front and rear bumpers from RLC, and am very happy with both.

I wound up buying an XJ bumper and making custom mounting brackets for it. Worked real nice! Now I'm trying to figure out how to find/make a custom skidplate
