    Hi guys, first post here. My Wifes 96 Grand Cherokee loraedo got busted one in the front. Took the bumper cover right off and bent up the core support a little. I was looking at aftermarket bumpers and think they look great, but I don't have 600 to 800 bucks to get one. I was thinking about calling around some wrecking yards to see what they have. What aftermarket bumpers will fit this year and model?
    I would like to put a limited front bumper on it, but I am concerned the core support is too bent to ever get it to sit right. What are my options?
    Thanks in advance!

    Also... If you are looking for a stock bumper, remember to check out your locak 4x4 modification shops and maybe your local Jeep or 4x4 clubs. They often have take-offs lying in a pile in the corner.

    This is my new Logan Metal 4x4 Bumper. Easy and sweet. Less than $300 including shipping Ebay.

    I forgot about the powder coat. Logan did that for an extra $65. Well worth it instead of painting an oiled bare bumper myself. Also just noticed the price went up to $220 Ebay and $189 Website plus shipping and powder coat.

    Very strong. It replaces the stock brackets with 1/4" steel plate going into the frame around 12 inches back and 6 bolts plus 3 to the bumper. Made for towing. Really happy with it.
