any custom front bumpers that look good out there?

In my quest to find a used front bumper for my '57 Panel, I keep toying with the idea of buying, or making, something custom.

Anyone out there have any kind of custom bumper on their truck, or, seen any that look good? I'd love to see pics if you do.

Thanks!

Back when I was 16, my dad and I rebuilt a '63 Ford pickup. We used pressure treated 4x6s for the front and rear bumpers. It took a couple days, but we managed to carve a gentle symmetrical arc into each and they looked amazing. Wish I had pictures of that truck, I had a blast in it!
