That bumper looks pretty nice, but I'm guessing shipping might be a killer.
To make one yourself, you might talk to a fabrication shop. I suspect it would be more expensive than buying "off the shelf", though. The one in your link probably has all the dimensions and patterns ready to go, and that's half the battle.
You could do something like make a cardboard mockup, then transfer the dimensions to Autocad, or Google Sketchup, and have the components cut out at a waterjet or plasma cutter shop out of steel plate. Then MIG weld them together, paint or powder coat. That's a little beyond me, though. Even doing that, I don't know how much money you'd be saving, if any?
If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
