Cheap but good bumper...

Can someone point me in the direction of a rear bumper with hitch, spare tire rack(for oversized), and preferably tow hooks...?

maybe even a front thats winch ready, tow hooks, light tabs, etc.

I'm not gonna buy something thats gonna fall apart...but I'm looking to spend the very least amount of money possible...

I'm planning on going TKH. From what I've heard, their stuff isnt the prettiest, but it's stout. Their prices are fair and include shipping. May take some time to get them, since they're made as they come in.

the rear swing out is pretty much exactly what I'm lookin for...

the front...40in with one loop looks nice too, but does the loop go vertical or is it sloped?

looks like the hoops are pure vertical, the stingers appear to go forward too.

Doesnt look like it sticks out too far or is overly tall. It extends forward enough to knock you to a side, and appears tall enough not to be obnoxiously tall but save your radiator.

I was a fan of the wilderness bumper I got for my last jeep. Their prices were pretty good, and I think they make one that fits what you're looking for.

x2. I work a bit more than that and make some more mone, but I have about $5 disposable income a month. I just picked up an Olympic rock bumper to tow qith until I can afford a swingout. I'll let you know when I finally do.

What about LOD? Their products are cheap and hold up pretty well.

My suggestion, as always, is to check out Zach from AtoZ Fab (zachv on the board here), his products are nice, good quality and are a fair price too. I went with him for both front and rear bumpers, along with rocker guards.
