Default 2000 XLT Front bumper swap?

I hate my front bumper. I've never been a chrome person and I would rather have a black bumper with some fog lights. Anyone have a "how to" on a bumper swap? I can't weld so I need an easy install. Also, where could I buy a new bumper and how much would it cost?

Go to a junk yard and pull a 98-00 bumper that you want or order it online. Unbolt yours (4 or 6 bolts if i remember right) and bolt the new one in its place. Partsgeek.com is pretty cheap or ebay.

Call keystone and see if they can find you a black bumper and a valance if you need one. They have access to all kinds of salvage yards and can get parts delivered to them.
