STX front end mod on a 2004 Edge

My truck is a 2004 Edge.

Can I put the STX bumper, grille and valence on? Has anyone tried this?

I think you can

The middle part of the grille is the same mounting as yours the bumper would be just a swap out of what you have

See in my picture the part circled in red and white all your doing is replacing that then just unbolt your bumper and bolt on the new one.

Your gonna have to have it painted if you get it from sat certifit or something

I've had the thing apart a bunch of times I just don't know for sure if it fits exactly the same, the edges of the metal bumper look definitely different.

you would have to replace the top part and bottom part
Or get the non edge or 4wd XLT bumper get like the XL style one

The edge one and any 4wd one have the side like this where the bottom piece comes up and connects to it

Here is my old 2wd XL see how the top part is flat and the bottom piece is flat I'm guessing that's how the STX bumpers are

EDIT:

See the 2wd upper bumper is the same as the STX You would need a 2Wd upper bumper and then the lower STX bumper. Or just buy the Upper and Lower STX

Better suspension, better engine, better transmission, better transfer case, more options, better or the same MPG and a bigger overall truck. How isn't it better?
