Need Bumper Help and Opinions

While taking my daughter to a doctor visit on Friday some idiot hit my front bumper on my '07 X Unlimited, crushing in the plastic end and breaking the lense on the fender flare. Now I am looking at options for a replacement front bumper. I have the factory fog lights. Any opinions on bumpers in the $500-600 range? Right now I am leaning to either the Body Armor Xtreme Bumper or Smittybilt SRC.

Sorry to hear about the accident... Similarly some numbskull hit me only 5-6 months after I bought my Jeep. On the bright side the compensation I received from my insurance is what bought me my front bumper

You'll probably be happy regardless of which bumper you go with. Have you looked at the Rugged Ridge XHD modular front bumper? You can configure it in several different ways so much so that it comes out looking like either the body armor or smittybilt one. It's a little more expensive depending on how you configure it but it looks a little meaner and better than the above two IMO.

Although I went AEV (had some xtra cash last year), I loved my Rugged Ridge on my last JK! You can customize it any way you like.Shop around, theres some good deals on them out there.
