Attached is what my truck currently looks like. It's an 01' XLT 2wd.
I believe the previous owner just painted over the metal bumper because where there are rock chips it's rusting. I keep dabbing it with touch up paint but there is only so much one can do...
So I was thinking replacing the bumper but keeping the lower valence. I am almost 100% positive the dude put on a 4x4/edge bumper because on the sides I can see the tabs and the part of the valence that "clips" into the bumper... Which would indicate that it is a 4x4 bumper?
I want to replace the chipping white bumper for a chrome one since my rear bumper is chrome, and my mirrors are chrome. I don't think it would look bad.
This is the look I am wanting to go for, See attached pictures:
I found this bunper:
01 03 02 Ford Ranger XL 2WD Front Bumper Up Chr w Hole | eBay
I just want to make sure this is correct before purchasing but it DOES have the side tab slots which mine has I believe. I noticed that on normal XLT/XL's the chrome bumper goes all the way back where the one I have does not, which indicates that above ebay link would work?
