your out of luck on the bumper unless you build one yourself or have a shop build one(which would be expensive). When I busted up my front grill and plastic up front I got one off of the internet, but I can't remember what website(I just searched) and found the whole piece for $180. It would have been around $400 at a dealership.

So just search around. Ebay is always a good place to start.

That's the plastic piece I was talking about and that's why I upgraded

You can try Certi-Fit in Addison, they do wreck repair parts and are really cheap. Some of their parts are good(lights) and some not so much(tailgates).

i wasn't going more than 5 mph but his frame rail hit one of my air bag trigger things and set off my airbags. the bumper is not too much worse but it was already messed up from my own stupidity. and i think the next thing i invest in will be a good brush guard after i fix the bumper. speeking of which does anyone have pics of an 06 with a brush guard im not sure what will look good.

ok i looked around and so far all i can find are the front bumper cover to an stx on ebay and this xenon front bumper http://www.speedyperformanceparts.co...006&partid=191 but im not sure if i can use my stock square fog lights with the xenon front bumper cover. does anyone have this on there truck or know if i can use my stock fogs? i want to go with this because i dont like the look of the stx front bumper and to replace the bumper cover through ford is $575 plus tax and paint.
