So I wrecked my 2000 Ranger a year ago and have been progressively been fixing it up as I get time/money to do it. I just got my last body piece to bolt on and make her look purdy again. I drove 45 minutes to Certifit (part place that doesn't ship) to pick up a well priced chrome bumper. I threw it (boxed) into my truck and drove 45 minutes home. I open up the box when I arrive and it the bumper has these...
(Sorry for cell phone pic)
As you can see, these random holes run all the way across the front top of the bumper, 2 small in the front and 3 long on each side. I looked at the website and apparently these are for an "impact strip" which I have had never heard of. I did some googling and this all I found:
98 1998 Ford Ranger Bumper Impact Strip - Body Mechanical & Trim - Action Crash, Front - PartsGeek
These apparently are "impact strips", just a plastic piece that runs across the bumper. These are two separate ones though, I need one that runs across the whole bumper to cover up the two holes in the middle.
Does anyone know more about this. I really need some pictures of 98-00 Rangers with an "impact strip". Please help, I don't want to drive another 45 minutes to argue with Certifit about exchanging it.
Thanks guys. Save me and my aging Ranger the trip.
