Shipping is going to be killer on most bumpers. Very few makers exist for these trucks anymore. Diy4x make good stuff but aren't very cheap, Chassis Unlimited has a tube bumper, but I don't think they offer a swing away option. I think Off Road Design has started making their front bumpers again but no rears, and again they aren't cheap. Aside from that you're looking at custom or homemade.

RLC Welding is based out of Kentucky. Dude makes some pretty nice plate bumpers or anything you want.

Chassis Unlimited has some nicer looking tube bumpers.
Diy4x has beefy plate bumpers

Hadn't ever heard of RLC. Dude does nice work. May get him to give me a price instead of trying to build it myself.

Came across him on Pirate4x4 a while back. He also has the bumpers for sale via eBay as well.

Oh now ive found it. Thanks but thats quite expensive and looks light duty. My spare tire weights over 120lbs. Not sure if that tire carrier could handle the weight / size. Those all look like fine quality products juat not what im looking for.
