Welcome to the forum.

What kind of bumper are you looking for? A pre-runner style?

IMHO, I would look around at fabrication shops local to the area you are in so you don't have to pay the hefty shipping fees.

Thnx i will look around and see here, I'm not too sure what style i'm looking for b/c i'm still contemplating about what i will be doing, but probably something like what road armor produces.

Welcome to the Ranger world! I'm new to this site myself but not to the trucks or other forums. You won't be disappointed in your Ranger I'm sure...they're easy to maintain and there are infinate ways to beef up, dress up, or chop and drop. Glad to see you join our community and if you're ever in VA you're more than welcome to join in with our club up here!

Also, post up some pics, everyone loves a good pic or two of a Ranger
