Differences in Front Bumpers

So I was looking around on a few parts sites for prices on bumpers. Now for the 2005 Ranger there is the Valance part and the upper steel part. When you look at the 2006+ models there is a new peace. There is the Valance, the steel piece and also a 'Bumper Cover.' What exactly is the bumper cover? If I was going to order a 2006+ bumper for my 2004 ranger would I need all three pieces or just the new valance and the cover?

I figured thats what it was... I'm tempted to order an 06+ bumper... painting is not a problem since I have a friend who does it and owes me a favor.

The difference carried on with the 07/08, mid year. My 07 was that awful black textured two piece with that egg crate pop out driving light covers with no driving lights. The 08 was a painted upper and black textured bottom with a different plate bracket. I like the 05 set up but with the different grill on the 07 it would not line up with the upper fascia I got after going to the 08 styled front end. Check the grills first to see if they line up with that upper steel bumper.
