I used post-it's to mask off the front grill, it worked great!

I sanded the bumper down should I use a sandable primer on top of the rust?

Yes, I'd definitely use a good quality primer first.

Grille looks good, black headlights would be nice.
The front bumper like everyone else but get a new metal part, then add some Fogs to the lower valance.

Not sure but maybe aftermarket.

If not the bumper looks just like mine, the valance is different, maybe you can a valance like mine in the JY and add the 03 Fogs.

Oh ya, replace the bumper, the rusting looks like it has eaten through the steel or at least marked it enough so painting will not look good and again, find a Ranger EDGE in the JY get the Bumper and valance along with the fogs…

luck.
