Hunter brand makes good and inexpensive full brush guards and bull bars. personally i'd just go with a set of tow hooks from an f-150 or Expedition. more functionality and practicality if you plan on spending time off road or mudding. if your looking for a bull bar to mount lights on, just mound some 5 or 7 inch lights behind the grille

No one actually makes them for our 3rd gens, Most people who have them have them custom made, or I know of a few who have retro fitted ones from other models

Brandon at BTF (who makes lift spacers here on the site) might be looking into making bumpers, but I dont know of anyone else, you might try to pm N.Gardner and talk to him about his bumper, its total custom.

Yeah, my bumper is 100% costom work. I had it made at a shop called east coast offroad headquarters (ECOH). Its located in Forest Hill MD, I see your in SC so thats a good drive. You can prob craigslist offroad shops or fabricators, but make sire its legit. Not some dude in his garage, (learnes that from experience lol)
