I'm curious if the newer bumpers would line up right. I'd assume this would be possible since the front of the Rangers haven't changed drastically since the Edge was introduced. Now you got me thinking John lol

Well its kind of hard to give a better answer when your post is not specific. What year truck do you have? Are you talking bumper or valance? Cause the only bumper difference is chrome or painted. You need to give a little more info!

I went from a 04 edge bumper/valance to a 03 chrome bumper/valance. Anything 98-09 is swapable.

And to add to that, the bumpers and valances have to match up. 98-00, 01-03, 04-current.

True, I think the bumper brackets from 98-00 are different but 01+ are all the same, anyway verify that?
