I am really striking out with these bumpers, they're sold out and no one seems to have 13-14 bumpers, only 11-12!!!

So I caved and decided to call the dealer for the front bumper. They said, 13-14 are the same, except boss package.it costs 350 (unpainted). I believe it is OEM FORD, (What else would they sell right?)And he said 400-600 to paint it. Depending on color.What do you think guys?

If I remember I'll scan my quote in after work today but that sounds right. I think the place I'm using was 325 for the part unpainted and the rest of the price was paint ~550 and that was painting stripes back on.

Ok that sounds good!My part costs 325 unpainted and to paint it black, another 325, I'm paying 100 more than you.Is it still a good deal (from the dealer)? Should I shop around more?

Well my total cost is about 900. Only reason I didn't try the dealer was because this place did my stripes so I wanted to stick with them but 650 seems good for total cost

Front bumper

Hi, it's difficult to see the extend of the damage from the pictures but unless you do car shows, what I did on mine is I took off the rear bumper cover and with a heat gun I slowly warmed the rear side of it and molded it back into place with gloved fingers.
Then I polished the bumper hard and you could still see the spidery cracks when you wanted to see them. Given the abuse that these bumper covers take, for me it was good enough.

I had an incident with my stock front bumper as well. Ended up replacing with the roush front bumper. Wasn't hard to do and. Love it. You should look into that.

After calming myself down, (it took awhile)

I began thinking, is this damage something I can repair at a shop or is it more practiccal to replace the fornt bumper cover. Anyone else been through this???

I am trying to post pics
Guy recently went into the back of me and damaged the bumper - the new OEM rear bumper was very cheap - I think like $128.00, unpainted. Front one may be slightly more but I think a repair might cost much more than that and it'll never be right.

I called Rousch, they say they take the existing front bumper cover and add in the lower grill delete, fog lamp change and the upper grill, for the 13-14 this is what they do.

As for the one I ordered ( i might do that down the line). I will uninstal and reinstall it myself, since it doesn't seem that hard (plus saving me money) 650 right out of my pocket on this one guys

I was looking into getting stripes done. You know how much that would cost??

I had stripes painted on to my car for 1800 but I have a glass roof so figure a little more if you have a normal roof.

You're doing the roush or just replacing the standard one?
