Question Will 2004 XL front bumper brackets allow Edge Bumper

My front bumper and valence on my '04 XL are damaged (bent in and down, the valence sagging and torn), I am going to replace the entire assembly because bending didn't work.

Will the existing brackets on my XL fit a replacement Edge bumper and valence 2004+ years?

My main want is the better look and fog light installation from the factory in the valence.

I don't mind drilling or cutting anything if necessary.

I tried searching this several times before and after I posted this. I think someone said you have to drill new holes but I believe they were referring to an early year ranger that the bumper was going on to.

Just be sure to get the correct upper bumper.

Also may look kinda weird without fender flares. since the bottom valance goes up to the flare.

Wow that sort of exploded diagram of bumper options is great, my LMC book must be old..I've never seen that.

I did not realize that Edge bumper had the "bump" to match with the fender flares. I'll have to think more about this.

Edit: I see there are two valence/bumper combos that have fog light holes, an XL/XLT and Edge/FX4 version. I assume the XL/XLT version doesn't have the "bump" of the Edge/FX4. Would this be correct?

XL/XLT would be flat at the top unless the XLT has fogs and it would be a non painted bumper like the FX4

Edge was the only one that got painted

Thanks. I'm going to purchase a XLT w/fogs, I saw on TRS were someone did a swap like I am talking about and the sides of the valence doesn't bother me at all.
