no the edge bumper WONT fit..

the edge bumper is designed for the grill to "dip" down into the bumper, where as our grills are dip-less...

u'd have a 2" gap in the center between the grill and bumper with nothing to fill it with...

it would look bad...unless u start doing a ranger conversion ,and i've heard even Brenton gave up on that...

You are refering to the gap in the "center" directly under the grill right?

i dont like the newer style front bumpers, similar to Brentons, the fogs look too small...my fogs are large and have a nice shape to them...plus its chrome...which has proven to save me trips to the body shop, as i've hit a deer running 50 mph...i slug the deer several yards, i pulled over and not a damn thing was wrong with my truck

the other day, and lady in a caddy backed into my rear...again, i was fine, but her caddy was tore UP...it busted out the rear lights and plte box and all...
