Icon2 Help with Bumper brackets on 04 Edge

hi there

Wife hit a light pole concrete base with the rear bumper and bent the brackets.
I did remove 2 of the screws that holds it to the frame one day and didn't put them back, that why they were bent so bad.

Took them off today to see if a hammer could do the trick but seems a little to much without the right tools.

Would you guys help me find a replacements online ? or maybe suggests something else, or even better, explain how to straight them back.

I do have a vise, small one but will work and hammers along with some other things.

Thing is that I'm in my early stages of research online and doesn't seems to be easy to find - BTW is a Stepside , I don't know if there's any difference with the regular bed.


thanks a lot in advance

Check out certifit.com, I know they have the brackets for the front bumper but I can't remember if they do for the rear.

When I got rear ended, I went to Ford to get quotes on parts. Rear bumper brackets for my fleetside truck were about $15 per side.

I made an order last night at RockAuto.com and I saw bumper brackets on there.

no luck in any of those sites, I've searched in a few others with the same results - I'll try dealership tomorrow.

About straighten them up - how soft is the metal ? Someone with body experience or that has gone thru the same thing ?

thanks again
