    I am looking to replace my factory front bumper with this one from LMC
    http://www.lmctruck.com/icatalog/cd/full.aspx?Page=73
    Item number 39-9816
    The billet bumper with the 2 fog lights.
    My question is, is there anywhere else to purchase it besides LMC?
    I feel like I've looked everywhere with no results.

    This is a bumper I am looking into myself as well. Df2x4, do you think it is best to just replace the bulbs in it with some regular bulbs (instead of those blue ones) and re-aim them like @shovelbill did? I assume they have circular lights that you can simply replce them (for a better pattern).

    Also, 97redz71, are both lights on that bumper actually fog lights? I thought one set was for driving lights.

    As far as sourcing them, I havent seen them anywhere else but LMC. Perhaps they are exclusive? Maybe try eBay or Amazon.

    I have a black painted bumper with the blue fogs that i never use (looked like the 9810). my son had a little bump and i looked into replacing it and couldnt find them anywhere in black, wound up straightening and repainting. i like the bumper thou, the fogs rust out every 4/5 years.

    Won't fix the problem of the bad reflectors, unfortunately. Best option would be just to rip them out entirely and replace with a decent set that will fit in the holes. Trouble is, I don't think any of the reputable companies make anything in that size.

    Could just enlarge the holes in this case.

    I have the 2 lights in the bumper from LMC. Metal is pretty thin. You do have to do some adjusting on the lights for sure. Be prepared to take the grill off a couple times to get everything set. As we all know after market and universal means heavy modifications required.

    So you paid the whole $380 for it? LMC literally never has any mark downs do they?

    I believe this is what you're looking for. Yes i bought it from LMC, no they don't sell any anywhere else unfortunately. Another company used to make some that were similar but they were discontinued.
    I didn't really have a problem with the lights in it, i replaced the bulbs with HID's and angled them appropriately and they're great! Just as bright as my headlights. I keep one pointed in the ditch and the other down the center line ish.
    Yea i paid the full price for it and im not sure if they would do any sales or anything on it, your best bet would be cyber monday. It's pretty durable too, i got backed into and it got one little ding in the chrome and of course bent the mount a little but i fixed that. The chrome has got scuffed around and i feel like that was me being careless when working on it.

    chassitech.com has bumpers for our trucks as well but i can't say anything for the quality of them.
