Question Plastic Front Bumper Damage

I have purchased a used 2001 Ford Ranger XLT {a regular one--not a 4x4} for my son {a new driver at 17--say a prayer}. The driver's side fog light area is damaged and the fog light is missing. I have found places that sell the OEM round fog light replacement, but any suggestion on how to repair the "bucket" area around where the light would mount?

The previous owner told me his wife drove into a small metal rod that was parallel with the ground directly into the fog lamp area. There is no other visible damage around the bumper {i.e. the bumper is not pressed-in anywhere around the driver side fog light area.

Again, the only damage is the drivers side fog light bucket...all of the plastic bucket area is gone and the fog light too. He did manage to salvage the wire hookup from the vehicle and I have tested the line and it has power when the fog lamp switch is depressed {the passenger side fog lamp is still operational}.

I have been looking for a replacement bumper locally but no luck in the junk yards and to buy a new one I can't seem to locate a bumper that is the chrome one top with the grey plastic on the bottom. So I am hoping someone has an idea if the log light bucket area can be repaired. THANKS.

On eBay you can buy the lower valance separate. I think it's around 40$

Question Re: Plastic Front Bumper Damage

I just went back to e-bay and can't locate one...How did you find it, what is your search word, valance? Though that didn't seem to locate anything. Sorry, but I am not the best at internet / e-bay search terms. Thanks for your patience.

try Ebay motors and in the "search" section, type "2001 Ford Ranger"
or "2001 Ford Ranger Valence" or... "2001 Ford ranger Fog Light"
see if those work
