Default stupid front bumper

Hi guys frodeezy here What was ford thinkin when they designed the plastic peace around the frount bumper. I now it probably saved ford money but come on now the thing is crap. after a couple years the plastic around the bumper and wheel wells starts to fade and look like crap. i went mudding 2 years ago and i ended up ripping the frount bumper half way off. It looked like my truck was frouning at me haha. now i got zip ties holding it up it looks stupid but it works. the plastic peace dose look good all armerald up on a nice sumer day though.

half of the trucks are driven by soccer mom's the other half are owned by members of ranger sites and are taken care of the way trucks were intended to be taken care of . used like a truck.. have to live with a duel purpose truck i guess..

i need a new plastic peace for my bumper im sure ford wants like 200 dollas for one, im not payin that to just rip it off again ya no. I no there probably a dime a dozen at the junk year so i might go that rought but what about a off road bumper i looked on the net and didnt find much, i found a cool bumper for toyotas tocomas and F-SUPER DUTIES but not for the ranger. Any idea were to get one fabricated and how much that kinda stuff cost??

fab work will depend on who's doing it and how much work is involved. check craigs list sometimes you can find something cheap on there . just have to check daily..

run without the plastic or build a plate or tube bumper, you can get someone to build you a tube bumper for probably around 400. A plate bumper will be over a thousand if you go to a fab shop
