Default 2001-2002 Front bumper retrofit

iS IT POSSIBLE TO FIT A 2002 OR NEWER FRONT BUMPER ON A 2001 FORD RANGER XLT? I LIKE THE FACT THAT THE EDGE AND SOME OTHERS MODELS HAVE THE FOGLIGHT BUMPER. i WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THAT LOOK SINCE I DONT HAVE FOG LIGHTS AT ALL AND DONT WANT ANY AFTER MARKET LOOK.


So again can i do a swap? If not is their a 2001 where I can have the front bumper from? thks

Yes it is possible, 01-05 would be prefect, you would just need the valance and the bumper.

yes it will fit, the edge valance is wider as it wraps up and around the bumper wo it would stick out.....it would blend into the fender flares, you may not have them then it looks bad

Hey theri and thks for the reply. what do you mean without it it would look bad? mplease explain.


On the upside my neighbor has a 2003 frod ranger edge and the interior like door panels/seats/ all interior are interchangeable and goes up to the 2005. I was happy since i get all the stuff for free. I will be visiting the ford recycler tomorrow as they have a leather interior ford ranger. woohoo... it s on babai.

Leather interior, nice score man!

The EDGE has flares so the valance and bumper wrap a little wider out than the XLT to match up with the flares.

He meant you can use your stock bumper and the EDGE valance, you would just have to cut the tabs on the valance where it goes up around the bumper.

Here is the xl/xlt 2wd bumper:



EDGE/xlt 4x4 bumper:



See how the first one the chrome wraps to the wheel and the second one the chrome does not wrap as far since the valance comes up.

CertiFit Auto Body Parts - Home great prices. but no good if there is no location near you since they do not deliver. Otherwise just keep checking craigslist, ebay and ranger forum's classifieds. The wiring for the fogs is usually already there, just need to get the lights and a switch. you can get a radio bezel out of another model ranger/explorer/mazda b-series that already has the fog light button.
