I have a 98 Ranger 2.5, 5 speed, 2wd, single cab.
The front bumper is tweaked and the lower valence was messed up too. I tore the valence off in hopes of making it look better, but it just looks much worse.
I walked around the local yard this morning and could only find a couple clean older Explorer bumpers, like this one. It was either a 95 or 96 model. This yard is dirt cheap and I can get the bumper for 35 bucks. I did find a newer Explorer bumper, but it was pretty rough and a new skin is 100 bucks.
Has anybody ever put one of these on a 98+ Ranger? I assume the bolts won't line up, but I can make brackets if I have to.
