Front&Rear Bumper Options

So i finally sent my truck to get painted, i guy i know owed me some money and he offered to paint my truck as payment, so all i had to put up was a gallon of jet black paint and some reducer and hardener. Now that its getting painted im thinking of options for my bumpers. I dont think theres much i can do about the rear bumper, maybe just have him paint it black, but i would like some fog lights in the front bumper. What kind of bumpers fit my truck? what years? and what style do you guys prefer?

btw heres my truck now:

All 01+ bumpers will fit your ride. I suggest getting a 01-05 EDGE upper metal bumper(paintable) and an 01-03EDGE valence(paintable). DEFINALY do something about that rear bumper. Here, i'm running an EDGE bumper, in 03 i believe, your XL trim truck came with the newer, more modern looking back bumper.

Here's a quicky i did a while back showing all the trim/model differences....

'01-03 XL(minus the waag obviously):


01-03 2wd XLT/01-03 XLT 4x4 Value Pkg


01-03 4x4 XLT


01-03 EDGE


04-05 XL


04-05 2wd XLT


04-05 4x4 XLT


04-05 EDGE


04-06 STX


06-07 XL


06-07 SPORT/XLT 4x4


'08 is the reintroduction of the round foglites:

FX4

Sport
And here a rear bumper difference between yours and a newer painted bumper.....

when you get your truck painted fill in the ranger and ford badge holes, looks way better imo. Plus if you want to put them back on all you need is 3m automotive tape, and can still take them back off with out having holes.

its been only about 5 days and already im eager to see my truck black, i dont want to rush the painter tho hehe . . i want him to do a good job. i think i am going with the 01-03 edge bumper, i really like that look, and the new rear bumper definately needs to get replaced. hadnt realized how bad it really looked hehe. all badges are going to be taken off. also im going to try to get that emblem in the middle of the tailgate as well . . .

Anyone know if a 01-03 edge front bumper will fit an 06 sport, I like the round fog lights a ton better than the square.
