Default where to buy rear bumper brackets

So I messed my bumper up a little bit while backing up. The bumper is fine, but it has a lean to it so i'm pretty sure i need to take it off and put in some new rear bumper brackets.

anyone know of a website where i can buy these?

Try craigslist for your area I got a new bumper for my 90 b2200 in portland from craigslist for 40 bucks Im sure with a little searching you could find one for your ranger easy. You may want to consider pulling it, heating it up with a had held benzene torch, and laying into it over an anvil.. Built ford tough.... itll take 3 or 4 trips to the anvil but when you get right Itll hold up to quite a few more "finder binders" if you dont have an anvil do what I do and use an old piece of railroad track held upright on a bench with a vice the rounded edge pointed down (flat end up)

Craigslist is a good start. Any junkyard...If I get my bumper on here soon. I can send out my old ones, but I can't guaruntee they fit your truck model year. Honestly crawl under the truck and see if the brackets just moved, you might be able to loosen the bolts and realign the bumper.

About a year ago, I was rear-ended at ~20mph. I Had the same problem. The bumper was mostly fine, but the brackets were bent up bad. Beyond my metal working skills to fix them. I searched many junkyards to try and find some brackets and a new bumper (it had some dents before the accident). Unharmmed bumpers were hard to find, but brackets were abundant. I managed to get the whole thing for 45 bucks.

Tip: I am pretty sure that all bumper brackets for the non-splash rangers are the same from 93+, but the mounting bolts are not. Bring multiple sets of wrenchs to the junk yard.

Good luck.

If your bumper has a a slight lean you may be able to loosen the bolts and adjust it. If not id go to a salvage yard.
