yes an 01-05 bumper will bolt up to your 99, you will need a valence as well


also, there are painted bumpers for the 99, not jsut chrome

do you have pics of a bumper and valance from an 01.. i guess i thought it was all one piece.

which would look better in your opinion. 01+ bumper and valance for paintable 99 bumper w/ fogs

Just go to www.ebaymotors.com and look at Rangers there.

You will have to replace fewer parts if you just change the truck into a "Sport" model. You just need a paintable front bumper and grille to do that. If you want the truck to look exactly like an Edge, you need new headlights, a new grille, bumper, valence, hood and header panel (I think).

well i am not really concerned if it looks exactly like an edge. just curious if an edge hood would fit or not. are there any pics around of a 98-2000 ranger with edge parts on it?

Ok, so the reverse should be true as well - if there is a funcitonal cowl hood for a 98-00 Ranger it should bolt right on to an 03 right?
