If you have an 08, I'd keep the stock. I wouldn't do it any other way.

Many 6th gens convert to 6.5th gen rear bumpers, so you'd probably be better off staying with the stock one. There are very few options, the only two I could think of are Sarona and the GT-R rear bumpers, both which are too extreme. The only good custom rear is the Stillen rear lip, which I believe only fits on the 6th gen bumpers (but also requires that you have a custom front bumper/lip and side skirts).

not to mention if you get an aftermarket bumper it would be out of place without side skirts.

plus doesn't the 08 have holes for reverse sonar sensors ?

buy it from any CertiFit store near you, if you have one. Have it painted by a good shop for about $200.
