Default New Bumper Questions

Hey guys,
So i want to put a new bumper on my blazer, I want to put like a off road bumper on but i cant seem to find any for sale. I can't find much for the blazer in general. Where did you guys get yours? Or did you have to make them? I have the ability to make one but I don't have the time since I'm at college now. I want it for the extra protection from deer, there are a ton of deer up here and I'm often out driving around at night and I don't think the stock bumper will offer much protection from a deer considering it already has a dent from the previous owner. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks,
Brendon

Most of the bumpers you see are fabbed up. I am not sure if anyone has gotten one that was pre-made.

Loans metal products makes a nice bumper and then there is one other company but I intentionally don't remember the name because they are fu***** outrages with their prices!

How hard was it to put on? Did it bolt right up? I assume you have to take out your airbags is that right?

That's what happens when you assume! That's really good to know! Is that the only place that makes bumpers for a reasonable price?

When I said airbags I was referring to the sensors, I forgot to mention that. So they will still go off if you were to get into a crash?
