Black Bumper for '01 XLT

Hi Guys,

I want to get a black bumper for my '01 XLT 4x4. Will a black one for an Edge or any other compatible year/style bolt up? I can paint it, no prob. I have the chrome and I want to make sure that a black one will bolt up. I want the blacked-out look for my front end.

Thanks,

01-05 uppers and lower valences are all swap acrossable....depending on 2wd vs 4x4/edge. Edges have the same bumper/valence as a xlt 4x4....but painted.

Incorrect.

01-03 EDGE/XLT 4x4(except value pkg) are all the same bumpers....same psysically. Valences can swap from xlt to edge and vice versa. Textured grey/black vs. smooth painted. Same with the upper bumpers......chrome xlt vs painted EDGE.




RangerGuy....I can't tell by your pics......but there was a red-headed stepchild of a 4x4 XLT......it's often referred to as the "4x4 XLT value package". That had the 2wd XLT bumper on the front. Easiest way to tell the difference between the two.....FOGLIGHTS. Value 4x4's did not come with fog lamps.

Thanks Shane, I have the factory round fog lites. I remember seeing that package way back on '01.

Thanks again, thats why I posted here I know theres some variation on bumpers and many other parts. For example, I have the '00 fule filter, lol. I believe strongly in getting as many opinions from you all as I can.

Thanks again to all the Great R-F people, you guys are awesome!!!
