^How does that help?

His bumper is trashed and needs a new one, he's asking if any of those would look good on his truck, not Rangers in general

However his wording is misleading if you hadn't seen his other post where he mentioned the wreck

with the truck you have, in simple words no.

you can get it to fit but the bumper wont contour to your grill like your current one and will leave funny gaps on the sides.

Can't say I've ever seen it done. You can get new aftermarket rear bumpers for decent prices sometimes... or why not a roll pan?

plus the explorers have the tag on the trunk so there are not any plate lights... just a heads up.
