Let me make sure i understand this. You used to own a edge and you still have the bumper. You now own a xlt and you want too but the edge bumper on it now and get the brush guard?

Sounds like a plan!!

No, i totaled the edge, But i want the edge front end valance with the fog light setup. i want to know if it will be hard to put it all together with the wireing. I have seen it done. want to know how hard it is. i know i should be more clear and everything when i first posted this. My only thing now is where to get the valance and how much will it be to paint it. here are the pics of my truck now and the edge is on the right that i totaled

Yeh you can do it and the fog light wiring should be there IRC. You will just have to get the radio bezel with the fog light button... You might get lucky and find one in a junkyard(Good luck though) and paint cost is just going to depend on the shops around you. I know around here they want 44/hr. Try car-part.com to search for a bumper around your local junk yards...

Okay i found the pigtails under the truck. I went under the hood in the fuse box, i don't think i have a fuse for the fog lights(but if i don't, i can get one correct? so it can work). still need to look in the center dash console and see if the switch hookup is there.

i would think it would be behind the radio bezel on your truck, and probably will have a plug roughly 1"x1" probably 5 wires on it, but this is purely speculation, as i have never seen the inside of a dash from a truck with your interior
