'09 JK Sahara - New Rear Bumper Question

I need your opinions! I have a fairly stock '09 Unlimited Sahara. Had the joy of boogerin' up the stock rear bumper over the weekend (wasn't very hard to do) and am looking to replace. Stock replacement will cost me ~$250-$300. I can get a Smittybilt tubular for close to 1/2 that.

Which way would you go (provided you don't want to spend more than what you would for the stock)? Will the Jeep look silly w/ stock front, tubular rear? Am I getting more, less, the same amount of utility, quality, ruggedness out of the Smittybilt?

Thanks for your thoughts!

Tube bumpers are soooooo dated looking. Skip the tube bumper. You'll always be thinking "oh why did I go cheap?".

Rugged Ridge makes a great looking, very tough, steel bumper that is not too bad price. That's what I have. And it will work with the stock tire carrier, or you can add their carrier on later.
