If you want a differant look try looking for a bumper hoop or brush guard hoop that mounts to the stock bumper. I ran one of those for about 3 years. Maybe $100 or so on ebay

Most bumpers will work and look OK, so it is pretty much personal taste. You can always put in a licence plate where the winch would be or install a front receiver.

Are there anymore that wouldn't look ridiculous without a winch ? Pics would be great if you have a bumper on your jeep without a winch.
You say that you want a bumper that does not have an integrated winch mount but the second bumper that you have listed that you like Bestop has an integrated winch mount. I am guessing that you don't realize that as well as you don't realize that the grill guard and roller are separate and pushes that combo just north of $750. IMO, if you are not going for a bumper with a winch mount, go with the Warn that others mention.
