looking for a decent priced, decent looking winch bumper

Picked up a warn for a pretty good price. Now I need to mount it. I would kinda like to have a complete bumper instead of a plain mount plate (stock yj bumpers suck) I would like to have one thats full width (no real narrow stumpy ones) d-ring mounts would be nice. One thats not too heavy would be nice too (want to keep the weight down) I Dont like those large dual tube style bumpers (yuck!)

I really like this bumper on ebay:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/JEEP-...73317666QQrdZ1
But it is a little out of my price range, just dont know if I can swing the 400+ price of that one

I also really like this bumper:
http://www.quadratec.com/products/12050_300_07.htm
But same as before, kinda out of my price range.

This one here is alright, and its more in my price range:
http://www.quadratec.com/products/12014_102.htm
But it doesnt have the grille guard tubes and is not as cool looking.

And just so you know, this is the type of bumper that I HATE!:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/76-06...66100307QQrdZ1
Any type of bumper that are two large tubes stacked on top of each other like this one I HATE. Bleh

SO anyone have any suggestions of bumpers I could look at? Links would be nice. Kinda would like to keep it under 300. I think I am asking for too mutch.

AtoZ Fabrication could customize something for you (if you want a full width vs. a stubby version)...

He's on the forums here as zachv

Instead of links, I'll just post the pics.

These front & rear bumpers cost me ~$60 (for both). They are not too heavy, have 19,000lb recovery D-rings welded in, and I have a 2" reciever as either a recovery point, or to help park my Jeep trailer in my driveway instead of using my truck w/camper (limited vision backing up).

The front could easily have been wider if I had wished.

Do you have any closer pics? Also, where did you get them?
