Cheap/Good looking/winch bumper??

ive been looking for about a month straight now for a good looking winch bumper. i just bought a vr8000 winch and have no bumper to mount it to. i want something about 500 or below. i like the way the Front Winch Bumper by Big Daddy Offroad looks but its slightly to expensive. looking for one with slots for d rings ( doesnt have to include d rings). dont care who makes the bumper. as long as it looks good. ill even do used.the main problem ive had is shipping and tax costs. ill find a good, well prices bumper and then when i go to purchase it tacks on an extra $100!!!! PLEASE HELP! i have a 2010 jeep wrangler sport 2 door.

Check out the Rugged Ridge XHD system.

Starts out with a center bumper with D rings installed. You can then add sides and a hoop to it as well as other options.

Northridge 4x4 free shipping over $100. It's a popular low cost bumper, more than satisfied with mine.

Check out Ace engineering bumper, there is also desert snake offroad, Posion Spyder makes great product a little pricey but for their basic winch front bumper it is about on par, River Raider Off-road has a pretty basic nice one for a fair price if you get it raw, then you have Metal Cloak, Or-Fab, Rugged ridge, Friar engineering, Smittybuilt, and a whole lot others that make bumpers some very basic and cheeply priced but it will take a lot of searching. You will find that if you can think it in terms of bumpers there is a company that offers it out there or at least close to it.

I would say for price though ACE Engineering wins.
