Default Big OOPS!!!! Now I need a front bumper. Where should I start??

So I have a 2011 RAM ST 4x4 and ripped my front bumper up pretty good. I hit a static concrete block pretty hard out at my local river bar. I just flat didn't see it and pulled a bonehead move, but now my bumper needs to be replaced. I figure if I have to drop money on it, I may as well make it worthwhile and wanted to get a decent aftermarket bumper. What would my best bet be if I wanted to stay under 1k to do it ALL. I don't want or need a winch, but it would be good to have the capacity for it later. I don't really have anything other than a 2.5" leveling kit, and am going to be getting tires for it later on to give it that much more of a "lift" and don't want anything crazy. I have found the ADD bumper really to be a good looking one, and a KORE tactical just OK. What should I be looking at under 1k for the bumper all said and done???

My local craigslist sucks. We have only 100k people in the county, so its a bit sparse.

Looks like I'm gonna be going this route. I found a guy who can fab up a bumper for me that will be a low profile, road armor type but not stick out 5 feet from the front end. I just am wanting a lower profile bumper and maybe a little 12" brush guard that sits at about 85* on the bumper. It will look as tight to the truck as I can get. I'm trying to decide whether or not to get rid of the plastic piece that sits up against the headlights and grill or take them off and have it fabbed up as close as I can to the body and lights.

Try quality caps on nine mile, they are great to deal with
