'99 DII Need front bumper cover

Pretty sure I asked this before but could not find the thread.

Tired of the DII looking snaggle toothed. I pulled about one foot of the front bumper cover off on a bush and it looks bad. A new one is frightfully expensive. Bumper itself is fine.

Anyone close to Atlanta got one for a good price?

Thx.

i second SafariDave... you could buy a nice steel bumper, find a local powder coat shop to custom match the color, and have plenty of funds left over compared to an OEM replacement. your color is super rare, and on the off-chance you find a donor, how will the bumper look anyway.

Speaking as a fellow Kinversand DII owner I am with OP on this one. Just love the color scheme!

I like the stock bumper myself if its all black, plus it probably saves you on gas since its light. Once mine craps out I am replacing it with metal due to the original being so fragile and not cost effective in the long run. I like this metal one a lot.

Yea that sucks. You went in reverse right?

I am having the same issue. I want to keep mine stock and put a winch on it. I don't like the look of any of the steel bumpers on the market. Even though they are more utilitarian higher clearance and better for offroading. Just don't like the way they look.

Reverse - yes. I was working at a Habitat for Humanity site and had parked near (I thought) a bush. When I backed out the bush hung on my front bumper and pulled off the front corner of the bumper cover. Does not really hurt anything; just looks snaggletoothed.
