It will look like oem, but it won't be nearly as high quality. It may need some adjustment to fit properly, such as filing out some holes on it or the bumper. The color won't or may not be as uniform as oem. It will most likely be significantly cheaper than buying from Ford, but check to make sure.

Aftermarkets are ok as far as my opinion goes. I would stay away from Pershing though, I had issues with them myself as far as their products go

The brand of the stuff I got was like 3 letters, but I disremember what it was. I got my parts from Car Parts Wholesale, or Auto Parts Wholesale or something like that. It's pretty junky compared to oem, but it looks about the same.
