Replacement bumper from the scrap yard. Same truck that donated the fugly $20 topper donated the $30 aftermarket rear bumper. This came off 87 Dakota so I'm sure it's been on there since the beginning, but it's in such good shape, and most of the factory units are crap by now.

Original ugly OE bumper:

Replacement just pulled from the scrap yard:

Replacement installed:

The topper came from the same truck and I bet that both that and the bumper were installed by that shop, which is now defunct I think. At any rate I like it a lot better than the crappy OE rust monster, even if I had to get new license plate lights and build a new harness for them.
